By Dan Bailey
Winona, MN (April 26, 2013) In the shadows of a non-existent spring, racers and race fans alike were chomping at the bit for the 2013 racing season to get underway. Some thought it wasn't possible, some thought it shouldn't be attempted but most wanted it, needed it and simply wouldn't go another weekend without it . . . like an itch which needs to be scratched that simply can't be ignored, this weekend was going to see race cars on a dirt oval - whether 'Mother Nature' cooperated or not.

After dumping snow in the area a week previously, 'Mother Nature' teased the racing faithful with sunshine and 70 degree weather Thursday and Friday. So, naturally, the track crew at MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY took the challenge and put forth the effort to prepare the fast 1/3-mile oval for the Friday night April 26th 2013 season opener.

By the time the almost 1000 fans on hand at the Fountain City, WI speedway were headed towards their cars in the parking lot, they'd witnessed a wild season opener.

Just over 100 cars attacked the track in hopes of a fun evening. Unfortunately, the soft surface, deep moisture and recent thaw produced a racing surface that growled loud through ruts and berms and bit fiercely at steering wheels and suspension parts. And as the racers tried every setup they could think of, and attempted negotiating every obstacle the track threw at them, they soon learned that survival, rather than victory was the goal of the evening.

No fewer than 9 roll-overs and 21 races later, some were victorious, some were nursing sore wounds and some were simply happy that they'd survived. But, through it all, the 2012 season opener did, indeed, produce some simply amazing on-track action.

After winning the second of three heat races, Brandon Davis held off all challengers to win the first River City Manufacturing USRA A-Mod of the season. First heat race winner Dale Mathison gave Davis a hard challenge, but settled for a second place finish just ahead of Princton, MN's Andy Jones, in third, 2011 MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY Track Champion Josh Angst in fourth with 2012 Track Champion Lucas Schott completing the top-5.

In the Coordinated Business Systems WISSOTA Super Stock division, first heat race winner Shane Sabraski somehow made the wild track conditions look almost smooth, distancing himself from all challengers en route to an almost 4 second victory Ben Hanke and Kelly Anderson.

The all new Black Horse Bar & Grill USRA B-Mods belonged to 3-time National Champion Cory Crapser. Crapser dusted up the division by winning the fourth heat race and then besting the 29 car field's main event.Michael Truscott and first heat race winner Troy Hovey completed the feature race's top three.

All eyes were riveted upon the familiar red and yellow #5 Jailhouse Saloon WISSOTA Street stock of Danny Hanson, as it pulled out onto the track for the evening's 'streeter' events. After making a limited foray into the B-Mod division in 2012, Hanson surprised many by returning to the division that has given him no fewer than 5 track and 1 National Championship. And his return to the division would have been a success, with a lead in the feature with just a couple laps remaining. That lead went away in turn three when Sam Fankhauser challenged for the position by diving low into the third turn with only a couple laps to go; the two cars slammed together and slid up the banking, leaving a wide open opportunity for third-place running Cody Kummer.

Kummer saw the opening, and pounced with his #12 and never once looked back. Kummer stole the victory with Fankhauser and Hanson settling for second and third.

George Richards returned to MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY to win the Elmer's Auto Salvage MTS Pure Stock feature, with Don Werner winning the night's Redbox+ 600 Mod main.

A rough track, yes; a wild night, yes . . . but it was a night of on-track action; MUCH better than sitting home on a Friday night and waiting.

MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY is located 3.0 miles north of Fountain City on Wisconsin Highway 35. For more information, call 608-687-3282 or visit www.mississippithunder.com on the World Wide Web.
