FORMER B-MOD NATIONAL CHAMP TROY HOVEY MAKES INITIAL LATE MODEL VISIT TO MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY VICTORY LANE
FOSS, RICHARDS, KANZ, & SEVERTSON ALSO FEATURE WINNERS DURING NAPA NIGHT

  

(click image to see full-sized version)

As NAPA AUTO PARTS of Winona, La Crosse & Rochester opened up the prize vaults for fans and racers alike, the sky turned a crystal clear NAPA Blue with bright sunshine blasting down on MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY to create an absolutely picture perfect atmosphere for the racing faithful in West-Central Wisconsin, South-Eastern Minnesota & North-Eastern Iowa!

Former USRA B-Mod National Champion Troy Hovey picked this picture perfect night to enjoy his very first trip into the MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY Victory Lane behind the wheel of his #4 USRA Ltd Late Model . . . .




06.12.15
JON VAN MINSEL BREAKS SLOW 2015 START WITH FEATURE WIN AT MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY
WAITS, RICHARDS, KONKEL, BECKER, & SEVERTSON MAKE RETURN TRIPS TO VICTORY LANE DURING SEVERSON OIL NIGHT




(click image to see full-sized version)

One little change, that's often all it takes to make a difference; but Jon Van Minsel was beginning to think that no amount of changes would get his new Black Horse Bar & Grill USRA B-Mod into the MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY Victory Lane . . . until the previous Friday, when a relatively minor alteration suddenly provided him with the drive-ability for which he'd been searching.

That minor change rewarded him with a second place finish and much needed optimism after a slow start to the season. During pre-race interviews before Friday's Severson Oil night at MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY he said, "Now all I have to do is improve that finishing position by just one more spot!" . . . .




06.05.15
JACOB BLEESS GRABS FIRST USRA MODIFIED FEATURE WIN AT MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY
DEREK SUTTON, TOMMY RICHARDS & LANCE HOFER ALSO COLLECT FEATURE WINS DURING WINONA RADIO / BUD NIGHT

 
(click image to see full-sized version)

It isn't often that a two-time track champion celebrates in Victory Lane as if it were his very first feature win. It isn't often, any more, that fans see a feature-winning car in victory lane that looks exactly like one they may have used to make a trip to the grocery store. And it isn't often that fans get a chance to celebrate the 25th anniversary of an effort to support and promote short-track dirt stock car racing.

Friday night, June 5th . . . all of those scenarios played out during WINONA RADIO / BUD NIGHT at MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY . . . .




05.22.15
PARKER HALE CONTINUES STRONG START TO 2015 WITH FEATURE WIN AT MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY

On a beautiful start to the extended Memorial Day Weekend, racers and fans turned out in force to MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY to begin festivities with a night of action and fun. After a touching opening ceremony, which included a moment of silence for those brave men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms, it was down to business for the drivers strapped into their cars.

One driver who has been the subject of much talk, because of a strong start to his 2015 season, will be enjoying much more time in the lime-light after racing his way to his first feature win on 2015; Parker Hale took the momentum from three top-4 finishes in the opening three weeks of 2015 and used it to power him into the MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY Victory Lane - winning the Black Horse Bar & Grill USRA B-Mod feature . . . .




05.15.15
THREE-TIME AND DEFENDING TRACK CHAMPION TOMMY RICHARDS RETURNS TO MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY VICTORY LANE

After yet another week of rains the crew at MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY did the unthinkable, whipping the wet and soggy 1/3-mile dirt track into yet another fast racing surface. And by all accounts from the reaction put forth by the racers who hit the surface, fast might actually be an understatement!

Through an evening of twists and turns that had fans on their feet, drivers up on the wheel, and digital scoring software recording near fastest laps ever there was never a break in the action or surprises. And after all was said and done, Three-Time and Defending Track Champion Tommy Richards had rolled his #7R back into the MTS Victory Lane . . .




05.08.15
BOB TIMM FINALLY REVISITS MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY VICTORY LANE
 
(click image to see full-sized version)

After spending all day on the dirt track trying to whip MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY into racable condition following a week of heavy rains, Bob Timm ended the evening sitting on an area of the facility which needed no grooming, no drying and no packing. A 10 x 30 foot piece of concrete which could be rained on 24 hours straight and still support a race car; the MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY Victory Lane!

Rains through the entire week had many thinking that MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY might not even see a green flag Friday evening May 8th, but Timm and his track crew got to work as soon as possible after the rains ended to insure that racers and fans alike could enjoy another night of dirt track action, "We've been working the track all day trying to get it into shape", smiled Timm in Victory Lane, "honestly, there was a short time earlier today when we weren't even sure if we'd be racing tonight. But with the great crew we have here, and a whole lot of equipment, we worked all day to get the track ready for racing tonight . . .




05.01.15
SCHOTT BACKS UP 2014 TRACK CHAMPIONSHIP WITH 2015 OPENING NIGHT WIN
The sights, the sounds, the excitment, the anticipation . . . "Opening Night 2015" at MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY in Fountain City, WI had all of that and more as racers and fans alike ignored cloudy skies and rains in the surrounding area and headed to the track to enjoy the one-week delayed start of the 2015 racing season!

Much of the pre-race talk centered around the many changes offered for the new season as MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY embarks upon it's seventh season of racing; two all-new weekly divisions, The Jailhouse Saloon MTS Sportsman & The All New USRA Limited Late Models Presented by Liquid Nitro Energy Drinks and Steve Yaggy Trucking along with the weekly return of the 4-Cylinder MTS Hornets joined the extremely popular Black Horse Bar & Grill USRA B-Mods, the fast Rivercity Manufacturing USRA Modifieds, the Coordinated Business Systems WISSOTA Super Stocks, and the lightning quick redbox+ 600 Mods to set the scene for an exciting first night of on-track action . . .

MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY REQUESTS ASSISTANCE FROM DRIVERS - FILL OUT PRE-REGISTRATION SHEET!
MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY is requesting assistance from all racers who plan on competing at MTS during the 2015 season. It would be extremely helpful if drivers could submit a 'Driver Profile/Registration' form BEFORE arriving for their first night of competition.

If all drivers arrive to the track on their initial visit with this form already completed, it will expedite the process of getting each driver registered for the evening, and allow the scoring staff to insure that line-ups can be generated quickly and the program started on time. If all drivers can either submit the online web form BEFORE their first visit to MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY - or, at least, arrive to the track with the pdf version of the form printed out and completed, it would be greatly appreciated by MTS Officials and fans alike.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY WELCOMES BACK DIVISION SPONSORS FOR 4TH YEAR OF WISSOTA SUPER STOCK SUPPORT
MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY and specific speedway sponsors are ready, once again, to SHOW THE RACERS THE MONEY!!

For the fourth year in a row competitors in the Coordinated Business Systems WISSOTA Super Stock division will have purse enhancements to look forward to in 2015.

   
(click image to see full-sized version)

MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY is excited to announce that Jay Oricchio's, Coordinated Business Systems and J-Mev Motor Sports will once again be contributing $200.00 EACH week towards the WISSOTA Super Stock division payout in 2015. This $200 will be split evenly - $100 to the Feature winner and $100 to the second place finisher of the Coordinated Business Systems WISSOTA Super Stock division Feature! And to sweeten the deal a bit more, Jay's support of the WISSOTA Super Stock division is being mirrored by fellow business owner (and competitor) Jeff Brauer (owner of Brauer Roofing Inc.). Brauer Roofing, Inc. will be adding $150.00 EACH week; a $50 bonus to the 3rd, 4th & 5th place finisher's in each Coordinated Business Systems WISSOTA Super Stock feature event. And just like years past, all $350 worth of bonus monies are guaranteed and will "Roll Forward"! This means that in the event of a rainout, that week's bonus money will "Roll-Forward" to the next week and be added to that week's guaranteed $350 worth of bonus money; this scenario (or, heaven forbid - multiple rainouts in a row) would set the stage for a potential massive payout for the next regular weekly show

"MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY has almost made it our normal operation to introduce new and exciting forms of racing to our fans and competitors", said MTS owner Bob Timm during the announcement, "We were instrumental in bringing the 600 mods to the upper Midwest, and we are very happy with the way that division has taken root and grown in the area. We truly feel that the same will happen with this all new USRA Limited Late Model division; a division which got its start in theory and planning right here at MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY.

"And while I have 100% faith in this new division, it's very important to the success of the division that we're able to draw a quality car count so that fans and racers alike can truly enjoy the division on our track," continued Timm, "to that end I'm extremely excited to announced and welcome the support of two quality businesses to this new endeavor . . . .




01.03.15
MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY OWNER BOB TIMM NAMED "WINONA DAILY NEWS SPORTSPERSON OF THE YEAR"!
"Multiple times in each of the past six years they have looked each other straight in the eye, looked in the mirror, then posed the point-blank question: Is this going to work?

Will the race track that they have spent too many hours, too much labor, too much money, too much of their heart and soul, too much of nearly everything, pay off?

After six racing seasons and nearly seven years of ownership, there is no simple answer, no black-and-white reasoning to steer them one way or the other.

So they keep turning left.

When you have a passion for something, as these four people — and their families — do, it is hard to let go, to even think of doing something else.

Bob and Paula Timm, along with Tom and Tina Lochner, knew they were in for an uphill climb when they formed an ownership group to purchase what was known as Tri-Oval Speedway in the fall of 2008, then began building what they named Mississippi Thunder Speedway.

When the gates open for the seventh season on April 24, 46-year-old Bob Timm — who is the main “hands-on” man or manager of the fledgling dirt track near Fountain City — can smile.

In a day and age when race tracks — dirt and asphalt — seem to be closing each week, Mississippi Thunder Speedway has beaten the odds.

That is why Timm, a highly successful racer himself, has been named the Winona Daily News Sportsperson of the Year. He has taken a dirt track, leveled it, rebuilt it, and turned it into one of the top dirt racing facilities in the state . . . ."

MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY BEGINS RELEASING DETAILS FOR AN EXCITING 2015 SEASON!
MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY began the new year of 2015 by releasing initial details for what looks to be an amazing and exciting 7th year of action at the fast, wide and racy "BIG 1/3-MILE" situated just an echo away from the banks of the Mighty Mississippi River on the borders of West-Central Wisconsin!

Pay scales have been released for all divisions scheduled to compete at MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY. In addition to those pay scales, rules packages have been released for two divisions which will be making their maiden voyages on the high-banks of MTS! The first division related news is that after a reduced-schedule trial period in the 2014 season, MTS will welcome 4-Cylinder Hornets back to the track as a regular weekly division. The 2014 series of "Midwest Poker League Flyers" proved to be exciting and fun for both racers and fans alike; "I was impressed by the racers enthusiasm and dedication to Mississippi Thunder Speedway last year", said Speedway owner Bob Timm, "The car counts were good, considering a limited schedule - and they really did put on a fun show. I think we're all excited to see what they can do through a full season in 2015."

Another change for 2015 is a re-organization of classes and class structures for full-framed street bodied action. Gone are the WISSOTA Street Stocks and MTS Pure Stocks; replacing them will be an all new "Sportsman" class which takes the best aspects of both divisions and combines them to create a new division which should satisfy fans of dirt track racing based upon the usage of true 'street cars'. "Let's face it", said MTS race director Chris Abts, "there's nothing pure about pure stocks anymore. But, we think that the rules for this new 'Sportsman' class retain enough of that feel of real street cars hitting the sweeping turns at speed to keep the purists happy."

And the big announcement for 2015 is the creation of an all new "Limited Late Model" class which has been embraced not only by local and regional racers, but also by the USRA Sanctioning body! "The rules that we put together", commented Bob Timm, "are focused on true Late Model racing with prices which are much more realistic and approachable. The Late Model Class was simply becoming unaffordable for local racers and weekly tracks alike. We think we've put together something that can maybe save this form of racing for weekly tracks and fans. I honestly think both the fans and the racers will see this as a great alternative to NO LATE MODELS at all." Timm's thoughts were echoed by a recent post to the MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY Facebook page (visit HERE): "It is official! Limited Late Models will run at MTS in 2015 under USRA Sanctioning! USRA will be paying a 2015 weekly track champion point fund and will be working to put together a national champion point fund for 2016! USRA will be announcing their decision to sanction the class soon! Rules are complete and a preliminary rules package will be posted shortly .... Very excited to see the revival of Late Model racing in our area!"

In addition to pay scales and rules, a tentative 2015 season schedule has been put together which once again puts together all the ingredients necessary to make Friday Nights at MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY the "Must Be There" destination for racers and race fans alike!

The tentative 2015 schedule gets the green flag compliments of an open invitation to both racers and fans with the 2015 car show and swap meet schedule for Saturday April 18th at Sugar Loaf Ford of Winona. The newly renovated Sugar Loaf Ford Dealership allows racers and fans to enjoy a close look at all the new machinery from the clean indoor service area.

Once the new machinery has been unveiled, the next date on the schedule is the 2015 Season Opener on Friday April 24th! Other highlights of the 20 week season include:
  • USMTS Hunt Race - August 14th
  • 7th Annual Rivercity Rumble with $2000 to win for both USRA A & B Mods - July 3rd,
  • 7th Annual Baehman Law B-Mod Challenge - July 31st,
  • 2015 Season Championships - August 28th,
  • 3rd Annual Baehman Law B-Mod Nationals - "$100,000 Weekend" - Sept 9th through Sept 13th,
  • 7th Annual Fall Festival - October 9th & 10th,
  • and
  • 3 visits by the Liquid Nitro 600 Mod Touring Series
Rules and Pay Scales have already been posted on the MTS web site and can be viewed on the "Driver Center" page.

The tentative 2015 MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY Schedule can be viewed on the web site's "Schedule" page.

MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY is truly excited to be looking forward to the 2015 season - and we hope you will join us for a EXCITING, FUN and FAMILY FRIENDLY FRIDAY NIGHTS!!!
