LUXEMBURG, Wis. – This Thursday night, July 3, motors will be cranked at Luxemburg Speedway and the IMCA Xtreme Motor Sports Modified winner will earn $1,000.
“We decided we wanted our drivers and fans to be able to spend the holiday with their families. We know a lot of the Luxemburg Speedway crowd enjoys the fireworks and family time,” said Gene Mathu, track promoter.
This will be a regular point night in all five divisions. Racing goes green at 7 p.m. Pepsi, the Luxemburg Chamber of Commerce and The 54 Run will be sponsoring the show.
Benji LaCrosse won last Friday’s IMCA Modified feature and $2,500 after starting 20th. The winner on Thursday becomes a candidate for the 2014 Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational ballot if not already vote eligible.
Brandon Czarapata got back to his winning ways in the IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars last week. He was able to cut into the point lead of Rod Snellenberger by two and now trails by six points in his quest for a third straight title.
Tracy Wassenberg visited from Shawano and then visited victory lane again in the Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod division. He picked up his third win of the season. Andy Kleczka had a late race charge to second and increased his point lead.
Derek Moede has a four-point cushion over Dan Van Pay. There are five drivers within eight marks. Marcus Moede was the highest finishing IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stock in Friday night’s challenge race.
