CAMBRIDGE, WI (Saturday, September 14, 2019)              One man has dominated the Late Model portion of the annual Wisconsin State Championships at Jefferson Speedway in recent years. That trend continued in 2019 as Casey Johnson once again asserted himself as one of the best pilots in the state. Johnson set the pace in qualifying on Friday evening and paired that with top finishes in all three features during the two day event to claim the overall championship. This marks his fourth consecutive title and fifth in the last six years at Wisconsin’s Action Track.

The first of two 60 lap feature events began with Jacob Nottestad and Jordan DeVoy on the front row.  After a great side by side battle to open the action, DeVoy cleared for the lead on lap seven. Nottestad fell in line behind DeVoy but continued to apply heavy pressure to the leader. On lap 12. Nottestad dove under DeVoy to launch another battle for the lead between the duo. This time, it was Nottestad taking command of the top spot, clearing for the lead on lap 15. Casey Johnson moved up to challenge DeVoy next, this time for second. Johnson got underneath DeVoy on several occasions with DeVoy holding him off each time. But on lap 31, Johnson got his best run under DeVoy, drawing even while Nottestad stretched his lead. Johnson claimed the second position on lap 37. Johnson began to close in Nottestad at the front. A caution onlap 49 aided his cause, closing up the field for the final 11 laps. Johnson began to pressure Nottestad on the restart, trying to get alongside the leader. As the raced off turn two on the final lap, Johnson got a good run under Nottestad. They raced side by side down the backstretch and through turns three and four. But Nottestad held the very slight advantage as the raced under the checkers to score the win.

As mentioned earlier, with his combined finishes, Johnson was crowned the 2019 Wisconsin State Champ.

Twin 35 lap features highlighted the evening for the Sportsman division. The first feature began with Josh Thiering and Trevor Robinson fighting for the lead from the front row.
