SHAWANO, Wis. (July 22) – A great crowd turned out in support of the seventh annual Racing For a Reason Night Saturday at Shawano Speedway. The event raises money for local childhood cancer charities.

On the track, 14-year-old Jayden Schmidt stole the show by battling with some of the best around to win his first local Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod feature.

IMCA Modified rookie J.J. Andersen also looked like a seasoned veteran en route to his first win in the division while Dan Michonski notched his second IMCA Sunoco Stock Car win of the year.
