Live Line ups and Results


Mike Mullen Captures 3 in a row on Bob Bennett

Memorial Night

5/1/21 Saturday night the Shawano Speedway celebrated its Night of
Champions, honoring the 2020 championship class. Webster's Dictionary
defines a champion as 'someone who fights or speaks publicly in
support of a person, belief, cause,' Before the races, another
champion's life was honored as Bobby Bennett was remembered. Although
Booby never won a track championship at Shawano, it was only
appropriate to honor his life on the Night of Champions.
The IMCA Modifieds took to the track to open the features with Mike
Mullen trying to extend his season opening win streak to three. Kevin
Feck would look to be the man to end the streak early on as he led the
opening 5 laps of the race. Further back in the pack Andy Karl, Marcus
Yarie, along with Jerry and Konnor WIlinski were waging a spirited
battle with three wide racing and competing slide jobs. Meanwhile,
Mullen was dicing his way forward and with a power move grabbed 2nd on
lap six, riding his momentum Mullen would take his spot at the lead on
lap 8. Mullen would continue his early season dominance with his third
win in three weeks of racing. Kevin Feck would finish a solid 2nd with
Yarie taking 3rd and Konnor besting his dad Jerry for 4th.

The racing in the IMCA stock car division is almost worth the price of
admission by itself each and every night. Tonight, was no different
Proving you can race four wide on the back stretch, three wide in the
corners and well just about anywhere on the track, the drivers in the
division put on a show. Kevin Hebbel would grab the lead on lap seven
wrestling the spot from Shawn Wagner. Hebbel would dominate the

second half of the race to pick up his first feature win. While that would
normally be the end of the recap, not on this night. Behind Hebbel,
Trent Nolan, Chummy Arneson, Jeremy Christians and Travis Van Straiten
would show why this class is 'Too tough to tame.'. When the dust
settled, Arneson would grab second, Nolan third and Vanstraten would
take fourth after having to start 16th coming from the B -Main.

Last year's Late Model Champion, Troy Springborn would lead the field
to the line for their feature event. Springborn, who feels his car
hasn't been running the best early in the season would look to make a
break from the pack. Nick ANvelink had a different idea as he went
from 5th to 2nd on lap one and began his chase of Springborn. Lap four
was where he took the lead away and set sail. Late in the race it
looked like lap traffic would threaten Anvelink's lead but he rocketed
between the two cars and went on to victory. Springborn held off a
late charge by Mike Mullen for second with Ron Berna taking fourth.

The IMCA Sport Mods have been putting on great show each week
themselves, unfortunately, this week the theme of the night would be
the yellow flag. Zachary Raab would be up to every restart to lead the
event. Behind Raab, Tyler Sobiescyk, Teagan Wudstruck and Jeffery Teske
were battling it out. After the 6th caution slowed the pack on lap
ten, the event would be determined by a green, white, checkered
finish. Raab looked to maintain that top spot and if the speedway
would have been 5 feet shorter he would have had the win. Teske would
ride the high side momentum to sneak past Raab at the line for the
win. Raab settled for second with Sobiescyk third and Wudstruck

The Mighty 4's would see Tony Everard taking the lead on lap five
getting past the car of Justin Finlan. Tanner Westphal would grab the
runner up spot on lap eight and look to add to his Night of Champions
night with a feature win. Meanwhile, Jason Stueck would work the high
side of track to move forward lap after lap. With two laps to go
Stueck would grab the top spot and capture the win. Everard was second
with Westphal and Brad Wedde in the top four

The Cold Temperatures Could Not Cool the Hot Action

4/24/21 Week two of the 2021 racing season at the Shawano Speedway rolled onto

the track with heavy jackets stocking caps and blankets filling the

grandstands as cold temperatures where the story of the night. With

other tracks having to cancel due to weather the pit area was full of

travelers and regulars for this night of racing. Hardy fans came out

to see Jared Siefert, Luke Lemmens, Tyler Sobiescyk, Mike Mullen,

Tanner Westphal pick up feature wins.

The IMCA Sport Mods would lead off feature action with Dylan Waldvogel

starting position go to waste as he stormed out to a commanding lead

in the early part of the race. Waldvogel would be challenged and

eventually passed by John HoltgerHoltger would get

close to the Sobiescyk machine on a couple of occasions but not be

able to make the pass. Back in traffic Jayden Schmidt would be working

his way forward in a spirited battle with Jeffrey Teske and Max

Oreskovich. Schmidt would eventually grab the third spot with Teske

finishing fourth. Teske after troubles in his heat race recovered by

winning the B main and drive in an impressive run to the fourth spot.

The IMCA Mods Would run second on the night and early on it looked

like it would be the Eddie Munster show. Muenster would jump out to a

large lead on lap number one and begin to pull away as last week's

feature winner Mike Mullen would begin to move forward along with

Marcus Yarie. Mullen and Yarie both started in the 5th row and by lap 7

they were starting to reel in Muenster.  Mullen would get by the Muenster machine on lap 8 with Yarie grabbing second on lap 9. Lucas Lamberies would follow suit and grabbed the third spot on lap 10. Mechanical problems would end the night for Muenster,  while Mullen was cruising to victory. Yarie would hold off Lamberies for 2nd with

Johnny Whitman and Konnor Wilinski rounding out the top five. For

Mullen it would be back-to-back feature wins to start the new season.

The late model division would see longtime driver Jared Siefert and

Justin Ritchie starting out on the front row. Siefert would

capitalize on a great start to grab the top spot and begin to pull

away from the Ritchie machine. Ron Berna would begin to challenge

Ritchie for the runner up spot. A lap seven caution would slow

Action. On the restart, Berna would get past Ritchie and begin to

challenge Siefert for the lead. Siefert would be up to the challenge and again begin to extend his lead. On lap 13 caution would fly again and once again give Ritchie and Berna an opportunity to get to Siefert's back

bumper. Ritchie would use this restart to retake the runner up spot

with Nick Anvelink moving to 3rd past Berna. Running an exceptionally

smooth line Seifert would pick up the feature win with Ritchie,

Anvelink, Berna in tow.

The IMCA Stock cars Continue to show why they are the most exciting

class to watch every week at the Speedway. Dan Michonski coming off a

miserable opening night would have to go to a backup car while his

primary car is being repaired. Michonski would find some opening black

starting from the pole position in the feature event. Michonski would

jump to an early lead but soon be joined by Chucky Forstner and Eric

Arneson in a battle for the top spot. Trent Nolan would also join the

battle throughout the middle of the race. A caution would take the

Arneson machine out of contention a few laps later. Meanwhile Luke

Lemmens would power his way to the front and eventually wrestle away

the top spot from Forstner in a great side by side battle.  Lemmens

returning to the Speedway for the first time in nine years would grab

the checkered flag with Forstner finishing second. Travis Van Straten

would grab third with Nolan finishing fourth.

The Four Cylinder feature event would see Tanner Westphal get past

pole sitter Alexis Michonski in the opening laps to grab the top spot.

Last week feature winner Brad Wedde would move into the runner up spot

On lap number 6 with William Hoefs grabbing the third spot. Westphal

would cruise to victory with Wedde doing everything he could to get

by. Meanwhile, Lucas Hacker racing for the first time this year, would

make an impressive run to the third spot with Hoefs would round out

the top 4.

were eager to return to some normalcy. With 111 cars checking in the

Justin Ritchie and Nick Anvelink on the front row. The field would
take the green flag after an emotional tribute to long time late model
driver and sponsor Diamond Jim Letizia who passed away last week. From
the drop of the green, Anvelink would find familiar ground as he took
the top spot. Ritchie and Troy Springborn, the 2020 Track Champion,
would give chase. Like so many times before, only a couple of cautions
would slow Anvelink as he powered to his 15th win in the Dirt Kings
series Ritchie would hold second ahead of Springborn and Ron Berna,
who started 8th in the event.

battle for second. When the dust settled it was Yarie in the runner up
spot with Lamberies in third. Wyatt Block made a strong run forward to
