Marshfield, WI, June 14, 2013 – In what is expected to be one of the better race shows of the year in Wisconsin, Marshfield Motor Speedway is gearing up for the first leg of the Yellow River Racing Series!  Saturday night’s racing action should prove to be some of the best racing, as some of the best drivers in the Midwest will be here, at Marshfield Motor Speedway, to compete.  Not only will MMS be hosting the first leg of the Yellow River Racing Series, a 75-lap special feature event, they are also host this weekend to the very popular Midwest Truck Series!  The Midwest Trucks will be on hand for one of their several visits to the speedway in 2013, racing in, what should be, a very exciting feature event!  Also joining in the fun this Saturday night, will be the CWSSA Super Stocks and Bandits!

One driver that has to be a favorite is last year’s Series Champ, Bangor’s Steve Holzhausen.  Holzhausen has had the recipe for success at Central Wisconsin’s only 1/2 mile paved oval.  Holzhausen will have his hands full however, as one of his toughest battles may come from his own boy, Skylar Holzhausen.  Skylar pocketed the YRRS finale last fall, and is looking to build on that momentum!  Past champions Jason Weinkauf, Ben Pettis, Eugene Gregorich, Jr., and Jim Sauter, Jr. will have a lot to say in who crosses the finishline first on Saturday night.  These four drivers have been nothing short of spectacular when turning left at the famed half mile.

Do you want to hear more……the excitement doesn’t stop there!  Two of the best drivers to ever put their foot to the gas pedel of a race car, across America, will be here to compete as well!  Namely, Sparta, WI driver Tim Schendel, and Wisconsin Rapids, WI ace, Mark Eswein.  It doesn’t matter what track, what state, or what event, these two drivers have a chance to win!

Also look for Colin Reffner to make his 2013 debut in a 2013 Reffner Motorsports House Car!  This will be the first night out with the new chassis, hence, Colin will be looking to shake a few bugs out of the new chassis and go fast!

Other drivers who should look to be very fast will be road course ace, Brian Goodwin in the Redline Speedsports ride.  Florida’s Amanda Ferguson will be looking to notch her first win, as will Paige and Claire Decker.  The Decker girls have look fabulous this year, both charting top 5’s at MMS!

Marshfield’s Dean LaPointe, Neillsville’s Monte Gress are just a couple other drivers looking to earn their first feature wins of 2013.  Both Gress and LaPointe have many feature wins under their belts at MMS!

One of the favorites in the Midwest Truck Series has to be Jerry Wood.  Wood, who a former Midwest Truck Series Champion, reigns from Madison.  His brother John Wood, will be looking to add to his trophy collection with a win at Marshifield as well!

Pit gates open at 2pm, fan gates open at 4pm, qualifying at 5pm, with racing at 6:40pm.  Join us on Facebook, Twitter, and online at for all the up to date information on tomorrow’s big race!  Also, is covering all three legs of the Yellow River Racing Series in 2013!
