Posted under News by Wayne Brevik on May 12th, 2013

Marshfield, WI – May 12, 2013 – With the postponement of Saturday’s Yellow River Racing Series slated date at Marshfield Motor Speedway, Speedway GM/Promoter Wayne Brevik has announced a schedule change.  The first YRRS event will now be scheduled for June 15th with $1300 to win the 75-lap main event!  Joining the Super Late Models on this night will be the Midwest Trucks, Super Stocks, Bandits, and the Rockets!

The second leg of the Yellow River Racing Series has been moved to Thursday, July 25th, with the running of a Special 100-lap event.  The winner of this event will take home a cool $3000!  Second place will pocket $2000, third is $1500, fourth will put $1200 in their pocket, while the fifth place position will earn $1000.  Wayne Brevik states, “we are very excited to announce the addition of this special race to our schedule.” Brevik further stated, “we are looking to put the largest field of cars in one feature event, something the State of Wisconsin hasn’t seen in many years.”  Marshfield Motor Speedway is looking to start 43 cars in this, a record purse! Race fans, your admission for this event will be only $5 for adults 15 and over.  Students 9 – 14 will be admitted for $3, and children 8 and under are free!  Entry forms will be posted online starting on Wednesday, May 15th.  Veteran driver Dean LaPointe states, “the staff at Marshfield Motor Speedway has worked hard to obtain an event of this kind.”  LaPointe added, “this will be an historic event at Central Wisconsin’s only 1/2 mile paved oval, it shows true dedication to the sport of racing by Wayne and his staff.”  Wisconsin Rapids, WI ace driver Mark Eswein stated, “I always enjoy racing at Marshfield Motor Speedway and I can’t wait for this special event!”

Racing on the heels of State Park Speedway’s Detjens Memorial Race Weekend, Marshfield GM Wayne Brevik believes that this could be a race weekend that fans won’t forget!  Brevik believes that having this special event on a Thursday will not only draw a large car count to his event, but believes it will add car count to State Park Speedway’s Detjens Memorial, as many drivers will drive to Wausau following the YRRS event.  Brevik stated, “I believe that all the tracks need to continue to work together to keep racing alive in Wisconsin.”

The second leg of the YRRS was originally scheduled for July 13th. With the change, Marshfield has added Ladies Night on its docket for July 13th with the Earth Incorporated Super Late Models, Midwest Trucks, 4 Cylinders, Bandits, and Rockets all competing!
