Marshfield Motor Speedway Prepares for Fall Shootout
Marshfield, WI; September 1, 2010 – Fans will be treated to a special weekend of racing at the Annual Fall Shootout at Marshfield Motor Speedway (WI). “With thirteen divisions racing, it should prove to be a very exciting weekend for the race fans”, says track GM/Promoter Wayne Brevik. The weekend kicks off on Friday with an organized practice and post practice party in the Speedway Bar. Saturday, September 11th, the racing begins with Super Late Models, Limited Late Models, Quick Club USA “Race For Hunger” Legends, Motorcycles, Cruisers, Junkyard Warriors, and Bandits. There was a scheduling change, as the 4-Cylinders and Super Stocks were moved from Saturday to Sunday, as the Legend Series had a scheduling conflict. Sunday, September 12th, the Yellow River Racing Series Super Late Models will take to the track. Stratford, WI driver Mark Kraus currently holds down the top spot in points, however, with Twin 50-Lap Features, anyone of 8 drivers could still take the championship home! Joining the Super Late Models will be the CWSSA Super Stocks, Sportsman, 4-Cylinders, Midwest Modified, and Pure Stocks.
One team this year, will be awarded a Sportsmanship Award which will go out to the team that best represents themselves throughout the weekend. Also, there will be an Award for the best looking Car & Team within the Super Late Models. These awards will be presented at intermission of Sunday’s festivities.
Saturday’s Super Late Model racing will be for drivers not yet qualified into Sunday’s Twin 50′s. Saturday’s fast qualifier and the top 4 finishers of Saturday’s feature will advance to Sunday’s Twin 50′s. The balance of the field for Sunday’s Yellow River Racing Series Twin 50′s will be filled by a last chance race on Sunday. Drivers that have qualified by winning a SLM feature or earning a fast time award in Wisconsin or Norway, Michigan, automatically qualify for Sunday’s features.
