SHAWANO, Wis. (July 6) – Jeffery Teske has roots at the Shawano Speedway going back to his grandfather Jeff, a multi-time feature winner in the IMCA Modified division in the early 1990s. 

Now, only eight races into his rookie campaign in the Karl Kustoms Northern SportMod division, Teske has notched his name in the Shawano Speedway record books after recording his first ca­reer feature win.  

Fellow rookie Dylan Waldvogel led the early stages as Teske chased him in second. Teske got underneath Waldvogel on lap six to snag the top spot. 

Teske looked like a seasoned veteran as he pulled away from the field down the stretch.  Point leader Jordan Bartz got to second but could not catch Teske, who cruised to the win followed by Bartz, 17th starting Bryce Clements, Matthew Radtke and Kevin Bethke.   

Marcus Yarie was the IMCA Modified winner and Travis Van Straten topped the IMCA Sunoco Stock Car main.
