MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY REGULAR LUCAS PETERSON CROWNED USRA NATIONAL CHAMPION!
20 Top-Ten & 6 Top-Five Finishes Moved #65 To The Top Of The Standings To Claim The Champion’s Check!


(by USRARacing.com)
Fountain City, WI - For a third straight year, a national champion will be crowned in the USRA Late Model division, and for the first time the honor goes to MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY regular Lucas Peterson of Grand Meadow, Minn., whose 24 starts were five more than his nearest finisher.

Peterson was unable to find the winner’s circle in 2019 but scored 20 top-ten finishes and cracked the top five on six occasions en route to a $700 champion’s check.

Former MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY Track Champion Justin Sass wound up second in the final points while two-time defending national champ Lance Hofer’s five wins and third straight track championship at MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY in Fountain City, Wis., was good enough for third.

Matt McEathron was fourth and Cedar Lake Speedway track champion Dan Gullikson claimed the fifth spot. Shaun Mann, Sam Mars, Derek Nelson, Michael Bruggeman, and Alex Williamson rounded out the top 10.
