Hot Laps with Hot Rod

For those of you that have been at a race when I have been the announcer, you already know that I have a lot to talk about.  In fact, there are some fans that think I get paid by the word!  That is not the case yet, but my people are working on that part of my contract.  LOL

Since the last 2 weeks of racing were called because of weather, I haven't had a chance to tell you about all the things you should know, so I thought I would bring you the first installment of "Hot Laps with Hot Rod".  I don't know how many installments there will be in the future, but the idea sounded good at the time.

First, I would like to take time to wish Joe Stedronsky of Wagner a speedy recovery.  Joe is one of Wagner Speedway's most loyal and passionate fans and he is spending some time in the hospital.  He's been bummed that he has had to miss races, but when I saw him the other night, I assured him that he hasn't missed anything yet because the weather hasn't let us race.  Get well soon Joe.

We are pleased to announce the IMCA RaceSaver 305 sprint car show that was scheduled for this past Friday, May 18th has been rescheduled for Friday, August 3rd.  That Friday night show has now shaped up to be one of the bigger shows of the season.  The 305 sprints will join the Tri-State Late Model series and our WISSOTA Super Stocks, B-Mods, Hobby Stocks and B-Buzzers for one spectacular night.  (See our updated schedule on our website at www.wagnerspeedway.com)

Friday, June 1st is the first "Horsepower for Hunger" night, sponsored by Wagner Super Foods.  This is a food drive to benefit the Wagner Food Pantry.  For each non-perishable food item you bring to the track, you will receive a numbered ticket.  If you bring 5 items, you get 5 numbered tickets, bring 50, get 50 tickets and so on.  We will be collecting food at the pit entrance and at the grandstand gate and we will draw for cash prizes, South Dakota Lottery tickets and more.  It's your chance to help a great cause and have a chance to win prizes.  That night will also be the first appearance of the Tri-State Late Model touring series.  Hope you can help us collect food to benefit the Wagner Food Pantry, Friday, June 1st.

C & B Operations of Wagner reminds you that, "IT'S TIME FOR A GIVEAWAY!!!"  C & B Operations of Wagner has some great prizes to hand out, but you need to be involved to be eligible.  Just go to Facebook and search for Fred Harr Company/C & B Operations, share their post and like their page.  When C & B reaches 300 page likes, they will give away the Wagner Speedway Prize Package for Friday, June 8th, which includes tickets to the races that night and a $20 voucher to Mom and Missy's Place food stand at the track.  When they reach 750 likes, they will give away a 32 qt.

Saturday Night Sizzled at Wagner Speedway

By Rod Pattison and Shawn Neistadt

Following a brief rain shower approximately 2 hours before showtime, Wagner Speedway opened up their 2018 racing season with 63 cars checking into the pits on Fort Randall Casino and Hotel and Tracy's Paint and Body, Inc night Saturday.

The evening featured appearances from 2 traveling series, as the Property Solutions of America Midwest Sprint Touring Series 360 sprint cars and the T and R Contracting Late Model Street Stocks, who joined Late Models, B-Mods, Hobby Stocks and B-Buzzer front wheel drives in front of a huge crowd on a beautiful night.

The feature events began with the Hobby Stocks and after numerous challenges from Dennis Powers (Wagner, SD) and Tracy Halouska (Worthing, SD), Justin Schenkel (Tyndall, SD) held off the field in the 12 lap main event.  "This wouldn't have happened tonight without my ol' buddy Clint.  He's been after the car all week.  I didn't even see the car until noon today, worked on it a while and here we are!", said Schenkel in the Subway Winner's Circle.  "I could hear em' there (Powers and Halouska) and I was nervous the whole time wanting to hit my marks without over driving the thing.  It worked!"  The victory was Schenkel's 8th career win at Wagner.  Powers, Halouska, Kevin Vasek (Lake Andes, SD) and Jeremy Sengelmann (Dallas, SD) rounded out the top 5.  Heats were won by Senglemann and Taylor Blom (Corsica, SD)

The T and R Contracting Late Model Street Stock touring series was up next and it was Tim Dann (Hartford, SD) starting on the outside of row 1 and going on to the non-stop feature win.  Dave Kuchta (Hartford, SD) and Cory Yeigh (Sioux Falls, SD) were in pursuit for all 15 laps, but Dann was the man on this night.  In the Subway Winner's Circle, Dann praised the track and his starting spot, "This was definitely a fast track and it helps to start out front.  The cushion was the place to be so we put it up there and didn't lift"  Dann secured his first ever win at Wagner and he was followed by Kuchta, Yeigh, Brylee Gough (Sioux Falls, SD) and John Hoing (Hartford, SD)  Heat races were won by J. Hoing and Yeigh.

The B-Mods would hit the track for their event and Camden Myers (Ethan, SD), who started on the pole, cruised to victory.  Although his feature win looked impressive, they had a lot of work to do.  "The car was just junk in hot laps and the heat race, but it came around and the track was amazing."  It was Myers' 6th victory of his young career.  Dudley Schroeder, Jr, (Armour, SD) started 7th finished 2nd, Tyler Tesch (Lennox, SD) started 8th and finished 3rd, Brad Vogt (Armour, SD) drove the Wade Wright 88 car while Wright is at National Guard Camp finished 4th and Logan Kafka (Wagner, SD) rounded out the top 5.  Heats were won by Schoreder and Tyler Tesch.

It was time for the Dirt Late Models to give it a whirl.  Justiin Havranek (Wagner, SD), in just his 2nd year in the class, was the class of the field Saturday night, as he held off numerous challenges from Gale Vogt (Yankton, SD) and picked up his first Late Model victory of his career and his 13th win overall at the track.  In the Subway Winner's Circle, Havranek was very gracious and admitted was a little worried.  "I have to thank Lynn and Seth (Fischer) for letting me drive the car and giving me the opportunity.  I saw Gale (Vogt) and I was just trying not to mess up.  I was getting a little nervous."  Following Havranek and Vogt were Seth Fischer (Wagner, SD), Randy Rosenboom (Rock Rapids, IA) and Jared Jelsma (Springfield, SD)  The heat was won by Vogt.

The Property Solutions of America MSTS 360 Sprint Cars rolled onto a lightning fast racetrack next and this race did not disappoint.  Thomas Kennedy (Winnipeg, MB) started 4th and swapped the top spot with Jody Rosenboom (Rock Rapids, IA) in the early stages of the 25 lap main event until lap 3, then Kennedy was able to drive away from the field victory in his Wagner Speedway debut and his 3rd career MSTS triumpth.   Behind Kennedy, the racing was intense, as Jack Dover (Springfield, NE) took 3rd from Gregg Bakker (Sioux Falls, SD) on lap 7 with the leaders entering slower traffic on the next circuit.  On lap 10, Lee Grosz (Harwood, ND) followed and took over 4th from Bakker.  4 laps later, Grosz was again on the move, this time taking 3rd from Dover in turn 2.  The battle wasn't over though as Dover reclaimed the spot, only to have Grosz make the pass once again.  The caution flag would wave on lap 17 when Eric Lutz (Sioux Falls, SD) and Taylor Forbes (Harrisburg, SD) would tangle in turn 3.  Both cars were retired from the race.  Following the restart, Kennedy led the rest of the way with Rosenboom 2nd at the line.  Grosz was a close 3rd ahead of Bakker and Dover.  In the Subway Winner's Circle interview, Kennedy said they finally got the car to run the way it should.  "We had been battling some electrical issues all night, we still don't have it all figured out yet but we made a few changes to keep the car sparked on the track."  Heats were won by Grosz and Dover.

The final race of the night would be the B-Buzzer front wheel drives and Kevin Andersh (Wagner, SD) would have a back and forth, hard fought battle with Tom Koster (Mitchell, SD) until finally driving to his 5th victory at Wagner.  Following Andersh and Koster were Matthew Andersh (Wagner, SD), Erik Kurth (Mitchell, SD) and Chris DeBoer (Mount Vernon, SD).  Kevin Andersh also won the heat.

This Friday night will be another exciting night of racing, as Juffer, Inc and Juffer Real Estate will present Late Models, the premiere of the WISSOTA Super Stock division, along with B-Mods, Hobby Stocks and B-Buzzers.  Gates open at 5pm, hot laps at 7pm and racing at 8pm Friday.  For complete results, updated point standings, news and more, check out the all new www.wagnerspeedway.com or Wagner Speedway Fan Page on Facebook.

Wagner Speedway Partners With Nation's Best Racing Organizations

Part of the growth of any business is the relationships built along the way.  Wagner Speedway is pleased to be joined by 2 of the largest and most recognizable sanctioning bodies in racing, WISSOTA and IMCA.  

The WISSOTA Promoters Association was founded in 1981 by eight track promoters in Wisconsin and Minnesota, with intent to offer uniform rules for the promoters and drivers involved in the Late Model division. Soon, the group decided to do the same for the growing Modified division.  WISSOTA’s current membership includes approximately 50 race tracks in the region of Wisconsin, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, Wyoming, Ontario, Alberta and Manitoba. These member tracks present weekly programs that feature one or more WISSOTA division car classes, as well as the region’s most-recognized, highest paying and long-standing special events.

The “WISSOTA region” is recognized nationally as a healthy, stable racing region by industry leaders and, as a non-profit organization, all of WISSOTA’s income after operating expenses is paid out to the drivers at the conclusion of each racing season through track and national point funds.

With Wagner Speedway becoming a track that will sanction their Super Stock class, WISSOTA Executive Director Terry Voeltz is pleased to have Wagner on board.  "WISSOTA is very happy and honored to have Wagner Speedway be part of our “WISSOTA FAMILY”, said Voeltz in a statement this past week.  "Our Super Stock division is an excellent class with many great drivers.  We have added the spoiler to the back of the Supers and that has added to the popularity of the class.  Wagner is an excellent addition to WISSOTA with it’s location in South Dakota and we look forward to working with everyone at Wagner Speedway."

The International Motor Contest Association (IMCA) was organized in 1915 by J. Alex Sloan, and is currently the oldest active auto racing sanctioning body in the United States.  IMCA is currently headquartered in Vinton, Iowa and features several classes and divisions of weekly racing in six geographical regions of the United States, including the RACESAVER Sprint Car class.  RACESAVER rules prevent money from buying a significant advantage and allows working men and women the opportunity to compete on a level playing field with nationally proven rules, which helps in saving racing for working folks.  The RACESAVER plan is stable with enforceable rules, consistent rules application, and fair purse distribution.

With sanctioning IMCA RACESAVER 305 Sprint Cars, Wagner Speedway Media Relations Director Rod Pattison says it is a key partnership in the track's growth.  "With the popularity of the Sprint Car shows in 2017, we thought the RACESAVERS would be a nice compliment to our 360 Sprint Car specials and our weekly shows as well.  Being under this umbrella gives our track the opportunity to work with outstanding tracks like Jackson Motorplex in Minnesota, Park Jefferson Speedway in South Dakota, Stuart Raceway in Nebraska and others in the region to share cars, fans, and corporate partners while helping to promote each other."

Wagner Speedway runs weekly shows on Fridays with Late Models, B-Mods, WISSOTA Super Stocks, Hobby Stocks and B-Buzzer front wheel drives.  The 2018 campaign will begin with Test and Tune day on Saturday, April 28th, then opening night will be Saturday, May 5th.  

For more information on WISSOTA, log onto www.wissota.org, to learn more on RACESAVERS, check out http://www.racesaver.com/ and to find out more about Wagner Speedway, stop by www.wagnerspeedway.com.  You can also experience more on the speedway's Facebook page by searching Wagner Speedway Fan Page.
