CAMBRIDGE, WI (Saturday, September 15, 2018) Casey Johnson of Edgerton didn’t race often in 2018 at Jefferson Speedway. But when the #5 Late Model rolled onto Wisconsin’s Action Track, it was with much success. Before the 38th annual Wisconsin State Championships, Johnson’s only other visit of the season ended with him in victory lane.

CAMBRIDGE, WI. (July 21, 2018) – On a night where more laps were turned in an effort to dry the racing surface than in actual competition, the portion of the TUNDRA Super Late Model Series event Mother Nature did allow was overflowing with action.
John Beale dashed to the lead from his fifth place starting spot on lap 27 of the rain-shortened feature to claim his first TUNDRA win in Round Four Powered by Wisconsin Potatoes Saturday night.
The win came just one year and one day after Beale challenged Wyatt Brooks to the very end of the 2017 main event. Although the feature only made it to the halfway point before another persistent rain brought an ending, Beale was pleased finally to visit victory lane in a TUNDRA event – especially at his de facto home track.
“It’s special to win one here after coming so close last year,” Beale said. “Everyone works so hard within this team. This was a long time coming.”
