TRAVIS SAURER WINS THE $10,000 BAEHMAN LAW B-MOD NATIONALS AT MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY
Elizabeth, MN's Travis Saurer has many reasons to be happy this weekend - ten thousand of them, to be exact!! After the three-days of on-track action with over 160 competitors giving their all, Saurer raced his way to the top of the heap and collected the $10,000 pay check for winning the Baehman Law B-Mod Nationals main event at MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY!!

The road leading to the unprecedented $10,000 payday for the B-Modified main event win was not easy; but Saurer put his experience, enthusiasm and lucky rock to work for him, and in the end he was standing next to his #21 on the MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY Victory Lane and holding the huge event trophy, the oversized $10,000 check and basking in the glow of crowd's cheers and the understanding that he'd just beaten the best of the best from B-Mod divisions in three different sanctioning bodies across 10 different states . . .

DROSTE WINS NIGHT NUMBER ONE OF BAEHMAN LAW B-MOD NATIONALS AT MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY
$10,000 is on the line for the winner of the Saturday September 8th Baehman Law B-Mod Nationals feature. But, before a driver can collect that $10,000 paycheck, they need to first quality for the Saturday feature. Qualifying for Saturday's main event began Thursday the 6th as the top-10 finishers in the night number 1 main event were awarded a guaranteed starting spot in Saturday's feature.

And the road to Thursday's A-Main was a challenge in itself as qualifiers for the night one feature had to work through first 11 heat races, and then 6 last chance qualifier "B-Mains". From the heat races, the finishers with the top-14 passing points accumulated transferred directly to the evening's main event. The rest of the 150 cars were dropped into the 6 "B-mains" from which only the top three finishers transferred to the A-Main to round out the 32 car field.

Waterloo, IA's Tyler Droste who transferred directly into the evening's A-Main from the 11th and final heat race, battled hard through the 25-lap feature and stole the win with last lap, final straight pass for the win . . .

KELLY SHRYOCK ENJOYS VICTORIOUS UNVIELING AT MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY

Friday August 24th Shryock arrived at MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY not only to race, but also to give the racing world the very first official on-track unveiling of the brand new 2013 Skyrocket chassis. To say that things couldn't have gone any better would be an understatement . . .

SCHOTT AND WOJCIK DOMINATE MID SUMMER SHOOT OUT AT MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY
Excitement, drama, uncertainty, and patriotism; the 2012 Mid Summer Shoot Out at MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY provided race fans with just about every possible emotion as racers hit the high-speed 1/3-mile dark clay oval for the two-day special event to start off the month of August.

By the time the final checkered flag had waived Saturday evening, just about every scenario possible had played itself out for the weekend; an exciting battle to the finish line by Kelly Anderson and Tommy Richards which was decided by mere inches, Greg Wohletz and Bob Cisewski grabbing the very first feature wins of their racing career, point leader Erik Kanz experiencing victory and mechanical failure with his USRA B-Mod, and heavy rains Saturday morning providing fans and racers alike with a reminder that Mother Nature cares little about dirt track racing.

But overshadowing all of this was dominance by Lucas Schott and Doug Wojcik who gathered feature wins on both nights in the USRA Modified and WISSOTA Street Stock divisions . . .

JACOB BLEESS WINS ANOTHER HIGH-DOLLAR SPECIAL - THE 4TH ANNUAL BAEHMAN LAW B-MOD CHALLENGE AT MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY
For the fourth time in the four-year existence of MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY Jack Baehman and his Beahman Law law firm rolled out the red carpet for USRA B-Mod racers with his big-money B-Mod Challenge. With $1000 on the line for the winner of the TheEngineStore.com USRA B-Mod 30-lap feature (and a guaranteed $100 to start) the field filled out nicely presenting the race fans in attendance with 3 heats and full 24-car starting lineup for the main event.

Regular weekly racers were joined by a healthy contingent of first-time visitors to the Fountain City, WI 1/3-mile dark clay speedway - and by the time the evening's $1000 checkered flag was waiving, drivers from both of those groups had shown their best, but it was a member of the "Youth Brigade" collecting the big paycheck. While not a member of that "Youth Brigade, even event sponsor Jack Baehman enjoyed some laps at the front of the field during the evening's third heat race, before finishing second to Cottage Grove, MNs Ben Moudry - but it was Chatfield, MN racer Jacob Bleess who showed, once again, that when a large payout is on the line, he's capable of ignoring any pressures and challenges and focusing strictly on getting his EZ Fabricating #21 to the front of the field, and keeping it there. Just two weeks after collecting a $1700 pay day for winning the USRA B-Mod feature during the fourth annual Rivercity Rumble, Bleess was signing his name on the over-sized $1000 winner's collectable check as the winner of the Baehman Law B-Mod Challenge . . .

BALOG ETCHES NAME IN RECORD BOOKS AS FIRST SPRINT CAR WINNER AT MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY
It was a history making night at MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY as the Bumper to Bumper IRA Outlaw Sprint Series made its first appearance at the 1/3 mile dirt oval. Fans who visited the raceway which was built just four years ago got their first taste of open-wheeled 410 sprint action and they would not go home disappointed.

The evening was full of anticipation as both the raceway and series officials were fighting incoming weather. Mother Nature teased at postponing the event, as rain began to fall when the 30 lap A-main event began to stage on the front stretch. However, when the brief shower ceased officials were able to push off the field and the event completed before any additional rain arrived at the raceway.

For Bill Balog, the event would be decided coming off the second of three caution periods on lap 12 when he would squirt past part time World of Outlaws standout Brooke Tatnell

RYAN GUSTIN WINS 4TH ANNUAL RIVER CITY RUMBLE AT MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY
In addition to the 5 32 inch flat screen TVs, and the hundreds of dollars in cash prizes, and gas cards, and bicycles, and t-shirts, and water-balloon tosses . . . the 4th Annual Rivercity Rumble, presented by Rivercity Manufacturing & Machining and R & R Machining, provided race fans with some excellent on-track action as over 120 racers battled for their share of an almost $30,000 potential purse at MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY!

Surprise winners, bumping and banging for the lead, and big-named visitors was the name of the game in all five divisions competing on the fast 1/3-mile MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY as well as both divisions of Mini-Mods racing on the smaller "Lightning Speedway" in the MTS infield . . . .

KEVIN HAGER BREAKS INTO VICTORY LANE WITH CROWD-PLEASING FEATURE WIN AT MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY
Many results articles have been written about a driver's first feature win - and racers and race fans alike do enjoy reading about that first checkered flag. But, probably the next most popular "Feel Good" story line is when a long-time track regular finally makes a return trip to victory lane after an extended absence.

That's the story line we're following after Friday's racing action at MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY compliments of an impressive feature win by Kellogg, MN's Kevin Hager . . . .

SCHMIDT AND HUSE GRAB FIRST 2012 FEATURE WINS DURING SUGAR LOAF FORD NIGHT WHILE WOJCIK, BLEESS AND SCHOTT VISIT VICTORY LANE FOR THE SECOND TIME AT MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY
Under beautiful blue skies, with perfect temperatures and a comfortable breeze, race fans converged on MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY to enjoy top-notch dirt-track action and an evening of family fun as part of Sugar Loaf Ford of Winona night at the Fountain City, WI speedway.

"Big Mike" Walski and Sugar Loaf Ford decided that Friday June 22nd was a great date upon which to throw some extra money at the racers as a reward if they could successfully find their way to Victory Lane at the end of the evening's feature races. To that end, a $100 bonus was on the line for the winners of the night's features in the top four weekly divisions which compete at MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY; therefore, the drivers in the Rivercity Manufacturing USRA Modifieds, the Coordinated Business Systems WISSOTA Super Stocks, the TheEngineStore.com USRA B-Mods, and the Jailhouse Saloon WISSOTA Street Stocks each had 100 extra reasons to race just a little bit harder to get to the checkered flag first!

Speaking of "first"; Friday evening brought forth a couple more "First-Time winners" for the race fans to salute and applaud. While names like Doug Wojcik, Lucas Schott & Jacob Bleess were being mentioned in the MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY Victory Lane for the second time in this 2012 season, there were two new driver names being introduced to the race fans in the stands - Bruce Schmidt and Shawn Huse each enjoyed their first feature wins at MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY . . . .

ANDERSON, WOJCIK QUALIFY FOR WISSOTA ROC WHILE SHRYOCK BARELY HOLDS OFF SCHOTT FOR USRA WIN AT MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY
With much more to race for than just a checkered flag, the action at MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY was as hot as the threatening, thick and humid mid-June weather. Anyone looking at an internet weather forecast might have made the decision that racing was not going to happen; but instead of the forecasted "100% chance of rain" at 7 PM, those race fans who gambled against "Mother Nature" were treated to "100% on-track action"!

In addition to critical track and season points, the Coordinated Business Systems WISSOTA Super Stocks and Jailhouse Saloon WISSOTA Street Stocks were racing for a guaranteed position in the 2012 WISSOTA Race Of Champions which would be awarded to the winner of the evening's features. The Super Stocks were also racing for yet another $200 feature winner bonus compliments of Coordinated Business Systems, Kyocera and J-Mev Motorsports.

TheEngineStore.com USRA B-Mods were racing to dethrone 14-year old Alex Williamson, who'd picked up his very first feature win just the previous Friday evening in a convincing display of speed and driver abilities.

The River City Manufacturing USRA Modifieds learned at the last minute before opening ceremonies that they would be racing against 9-Time USMTS National Champion Kelly Shryock - who showed up at MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY for a little USRA fun.

The Redbox+ 600 Mods were all trying to find a way to tie an anchor onto the rear-end of Joe Provinzino, who'd already piloted his JoeProvoRaceWear.com #89 to four feature wins through the opening weeks of competition on MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY's 1/3-Mile oval.

All of this and more . . . .

AN EVENING OF FIRSTS - SIX DIFFERENT DRIVERS GRAB FIRST FEATURE WINS OF 2012
A win is a win; that saying is true enough. In our sport the main goal is, of course, beating the competition to the checkered flag. A heat race win can feel like a cool glass of water on a blistering summer day . . . but it's the main event that can really quench a driver's thirst for victory.

Once a racer gets that first feature win of the season on the books, things change just a little. It can, in many cases, help the driver get started on the road to several additional successes.

Yes, racing at the local level is centered on fun and enjoyment at the track; but a feature victory is the icing on the cake that makes the fun so much sweeter! Friday June 8th saw six (SIX!) first time feature winners for the 2012 season at MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY!

CORN BELT CLASH LATE MODEL SERIES COMING TO MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY JUNE 1ST
5-29-2012 UPDATE: WISSOTA Super Stocks added - with $400 Feature winner Bonus from Coordinated Business Systems, Kyocera & J-Mev Motorsports!

MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY is excited to roll out the red carpet for the ultra powerful, super competetive CORN BELT CLASH LATE MODEL SERIES which will make a stop at the West-Central Wisconsin power-plant on Friday June 1st! Big money is on the line with the $3000 to win $300 to start special event which is sure to bring the best Late Model drivers in the upper midwest, and beyond, to one of the best dirt tracks in the upper midwest, and beyond.

(click for a larger view)

Friday night, June 1st, is sure to be a great event for all race fans as the Corn Belt Clast Late Model Series will be joined by a full card of regular weekly divisions from MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY also competing that evening - Rivercity Manufacturing USRA Modifieds, Coordinated Business Systems WISSOTA Super Stocks, The Engine Store.com USRA B-Mods, REDBOX+ 600 Mods, Elmer's Auto Salvage MTS Pure Stocks as well as the Sunshine Sanitation A & B Mini Mods.

As a side note, a combination of events means that the Coordinated Business Systems WISSOTA Super Stocks (which were added to the schedule just this past weekend) will be racing for quite a bit more money for the evening's feature winner. Because of the "Progressive Winner's Bonus" provided by Coordinated Business Systems, Kyocera & J-Mev Motorsports and the rain out for the Super Stock program this past week (Friday May 25th), the competitors in this Friday's Coordinated Business Systems WISSOTA Super Stock feature will be racing for an extra $400 bonus ABOVE the regularly posted Super Stock payout!

The "Progressive Winner's Bonus" provided by Coordinated Business Systems, Kyocera & J-Mev Motorsports is structured in such a way that a $200 bonus is GUARANTEED for EVERY week's Super Stock feature.

"YOUTH BRIGADE" ENJOYS STRONG FINISHES DURING COCA-COLA BOTTLING COMPANY OF WINONA NIGHT
The list of veteran racers was familiar during Coca-Cola Bottling Company of Winona night at MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY Friday, but it was members of the "Youth Brigade" who flexed their young muscles and showed their strength by running hard, clean and fast. Every single division that hit the high banks on MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY for green-flag action contained at least one driver who was either still in High-School, or at least young enough to remember the experience; and they all showed that they had the skill and equipment to not only run with the veterans, but in many cases, ahead of the veterans . . .

FAN FAVORITE "FAST FREDDIE" FETCHES FIRST FEATURE OF 2012
It seems that every race track has a cast of competitors who are "Fan Favorites". One of those "Fan Favorites" at MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY is "Fast Freddie" Prudoehl.

Some of it has to do with his age . . . at a spry 70 years old, who couldn't help but cheer for him. Some of it has to do with the fact that even at the age of 70, Freddie is a legitimate contender for a finish up front while he's strapped in behind the wheel of his "Yellow Deuce" WISSOTA Street Stock. And some of it has to do with that nearly never-ending smile that seems to ride his face like a perfectly sized suit.

Friday night, May 11th, that smile was out in full force, and reflected by smiles on almost every face in the grandstands at MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY . . .
