GREEN BAY, Wis. (July 13, 2022) – It will be no easy task to grab the first TUNDRA Super Late Model Series checkered flag at Norway Speedway since the series last visited in 2014. A field full of regional and local talent will be on display this Saturday, July 16.
Over 30 entries are expected to do battle for the $2,500 top prize at the third-mile located on the Dickinson County Fairgrounds. Interestingly enough, all three drivers who finished on the podium in 2014 will also be in the field. Dalton Zehr, Dan Lindsley, and Mark Mackesy will be hoping to repeat their success of the last visit.
Since that time Zehr has won three TUNDRA championships and become a nationally-recognized Super Late Model racer. Lindsley captured the Norway Speedway track Championship, and Mark Mackesy picked up numerous feature wins.
There won’t be a shortage of drivers who have come onto the scene both regionally and at Norway who will look to be keeping them from more success. Justin Mondeik has proven to be a force in the area, and most recently at Norway Speedway where he has been stacking up feature wins. Chad Butz, fresh off his win in the White Race at WIR will look to recapture some glory at Norway Speedway after winning the Championship there a year ago. Defending TUNDRA titlist Riley Stenjem will also have plenty of eyes on him as he’s proven to not only be a quick learner, but a team that can get good at any race track in a hurry.
Some of the other outsiders to watch will be Andy Monday, who has seen success in limited visits to Norway, former TUNDRA Rookie of the Year Brock Heinrich, former TUNDRA feature winner Colin Reffner, former Big 8 Series Champion Max Kahler, top EPYK Media Rookie contender Barrett Polhemus, and the man who will race anything at any time (and has the Championships to back it up) James Swan.
Among some of the locals to watch aside from Lindsley will be Jason Wells, who set fast time for the Stateline Challenge two weks ago, Tanner Kelly, whose family has seen a ton of success at the track, and Robbie Iverson who has already had his share of visits to Norway Victory Lane in his young career.
TUNDRA will be joined by the Norway Super Stocks, Sportsman, and 4 Bangers. Fan gates open at 5pm, Ken’s Sports Qualifying is at 5:30, and racing begins at 7 pm.
Norway Speedway is located just past the Wisconsin/Michigan border on US Highway 8. For more information visit http://www.norwayspeedway.com
