After having the past two weeks off due to special events, the three NASCAR Whelen All American Series divisions (Late Models, Sportsman, Bandits) return to action this Friday night along with 6Shooters. The four divisions join the Super Late Models who will be here for the second round of the Super Late Model Triple Crown Challenge.

Jeremy Miller of Rockford, Illinois, is the current point leader in the NASCAR Whelen All American Late Models division. Miler leads with 299 points just twelve points ahead of Austin Nason (287). Bobby Wilberg (272), Dale Nottestad (268), and Zack Riddle (245) round out the top five. Miller, Wilberg, Nottestad, and Riddle account for the last ten track championships in the division at Madison.

Miller, Michael Bilderback, and rookie Will Rece have feature wins so far this year. Rece is the first rookie in many years to win a Late Model feature as part of the weekly racing series. Riddle leads the RA Heating and Air Conditioning Dash Series.

Three-time track champion Robert Hansberry Jr. is on top of the standings for the Dave’s White Rock Sportsman after three races. Hansberry Jr. has two wins to his credit so far this year tying him with Scott Riedner for the lead in all-time feature wins with fifteen. He leads the points chase with 342 with MIke Taylor in second with 325 followed by Ray Hellenbrand (288), rookie Bryan Hellenbrand (253) and Tim Wondrash (245) completing the top five. Hansberry Jr. also leads the RA Heating and Air Conditioning Dash Series.

McKayla Adams is currently second with 215 points followed by two-time champion Dan Snyder (196), Jeremy Bredeson (182), and Bill Kohn (164). Snyder shows the way in the RA Heating and Air Conditioning Dash Series.

Trevor Chilson topped a seventeen car field for the Roto Rooter 6Shooters in their only appearance this year. This entry level division has grown each year with most drivers having less than $600 invested in their cars.
