CASEY ARNESON WINS THE 2ND ANNUAL BAEHMAN B-MOD NATIONALS AT MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY







(click image to see full-sized version)

The IMCA Sport Mod, the WISSOTA Midwest Mod, the USRA B-Mod, whatever you call it, it's the dirt track equivalent of "the third wheel" on a high-school date. For years the division has been looked upon as either a starting place for up and coming drivers, or the resting place for under-funded race teams. It's a support division that's used to 'fill out the card' at any number of race tracks special events or even weekly programs.

Not any longer.

It took MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY owner Bob Timm, and division supporter Jack Baehman to shine the spot light on the class, bust the shackles off its competitors and introduce it to the crowd as a headline event. In 2012, the First Annual Baehman Law B-Mod Nationals had racers doing double-takes, asking "really?" and trying to shake the disbelief from their minds; it went on to bring drivers from 14 states to the high-speed 1/3 mile just north of little Fountain City, WI and packed the grandstands with people who wanted to see the 'Everyman' finally get a chance to compete for the big paycheck. For racers who normally compete for anywhere from $300 to $500 for a feature win . . . the announcement that the B-Mod Nationals winner would take home a check for $10,000 sounded like a lottery junkies dream come true!

The success of the inaugural edition of the B-Mod Nationals at MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY cemented the fact that there would be, at least, a second; and so, 2013 brought about the 2nd Annual $10,000-to-win Baehman B-Mod Nationals!

Again, drivers and fans came from all over the United States knowing that before the first green flag flew . . . every driver had the exact same opportunity . . . the opportunity to race their way to a $10,000 pay day.

But, it wouldn't be easy. Two nights of preliminary racing, and then a third evening of Last Chance Qualifiers would be needed to fill out the 30 car field which would line up and take the green flag three-wide at the start of the 60-lap Main evening Saturday night September 7th . . .

MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY'S BAEHMAN LAW B-MOD NATIONALS GETS MEDIA COVERAGE
Winona Daily News Sports Writer Jeff Brown (jef.brown@lee.net) writes: Big-time money draws big-time racers. And, if you’re Bob Timm, you’re banking on that hefty purse bringing in some rather big-time crowds.

Timm, who has quickly built Mississippi Thunder Speedway, a one-third mile high-banked oval, into one of the region’s must-be places, has a three-day B Modified show that will rival any in the country.

It starts tonight at the track, which is located just outside Fountain City, and runs through Saturday . . .

Everyone in the racing community knows the importance of support. Drivers have, want or need sponsors - but tracks have the exact same haves, wants and/or needs. Thankfully enough, MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY has just such supporters; one of which is Baehman Law - the title sponsor of Friday's 5th Annual Baehman Law B-Mod Challenge, a $1000 to win special event topped only by the Baehman Law B-Mod Nationals, the much talked about $10,000 to win special scheduled for September!

"Special thanks to Jack and Stacy Baehman for a successful 5th Annual Baehman Law B-Mod Challenge race!" said MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY owner Bob Timm, after Friday's program, "Nobody has done more for B-Mod drivers racing at MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY over the last 5 years than Jack Baehman! It would not be possible to do these special events without the support of sponsors; and ones willing to donate as much as Jack are few and far between!"

Thirty USRA B-Mod racers showed up for their crack at the $1000-to-win, $100-to-start, payout for the 25 lap main event. After four heat races, and a last chance qualifier B-Main, the starting field of 26 was ready to attack the track, and each other for the race to the checkered flag . . .

RODEWALD, TIMM, WAITS, WOJCIK VISIT VICTORY LANE AT MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY!
Race fans flocked to MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY in Fountain City, WI Friday night to enjoy the fun and pageantry which is Winona Radio / Budweiser Night - as an event which originally started back in the late '80s, it's one of the longest running, if not THE longest running, racing event promotions in the area, and fans know the fun factor will be high. This year, despite a late afternoon shower, the fun for the fans in the packed grandstands was indeed high; matched, perhaps, only by the on-track excitement which unfolded before them on the super-fast 1/3 mile.

Much of the talk at the end of the evening concerned the start of the Black Horse Bar & Grill USRA B-Mod Feature. As the pack came roaring out of turn four on the opening lap, the field drifted high on front straight. Driver opinions varied as to where the action actually began, but the #4G of Trempealeau, WI racer Chris Gilbertson, starting on the outside of the third row, was forced into the front straight concrete wall just before the starter's flag stand at the start finish line . . .

DEFENDING TRACK CHAMPIONS AND FIRST TIME VISITORS TO MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY'S VICTORY LANE!
Just one week ago, the buzz rippling through the racing community was how the racing weekend had been snowed out! This week, however, the weather cooperated and track crew at MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY whipped the banked 1/3-Mile dark clay oval into a fast and smooth jewel that had racers flirting with early season track record lap times.

The fact that the previous week's on-track action had been snowed out was, indeed, a big deal as 2013 is the second season for a 'progression bonus' guarantee. So WISSOTA Super Stock drivers were racing for an opportunity to cash in on a portion of the combined $700 worth of bonus money ($400 for the winner, $200 for second & $100 for third) at the end of Friday night's Coordinated Business Systems WISSOTA Super Stock feature . . .

MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY 2013 CAR SHOW AND SWAP MEET RESCHEDULED FOR SATURDAY APRIL 20th!
Race fans will have to wait just a little bit longer to finally see all the new hardware for the 2013 racing season as MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY has decided to reschedule the 2013 car show for Saturday April 20th.

MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY Owner Bob Timm explained, "to be honest, it is just soo cold yet . . . I think we'll kind of loose the racing feeling if we're all standing around in snow suits". While joking a bit about the cold weather that still has the area in its grips, Timm continued a bit more seriously, "I do feel, though, that if I wait until it warms up a bit we will get more people stopping in. And with the new date being only a single weekend before our scheduled season opener, I think we can build a bunch of hype and excitement at this year's car show and carry that fan involvement right through the following week and into our season opener on the 26th. . . .

OPENING NIGHT 'BUMP AND GRIND' AT MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY!
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 . . .
