CAMBRIDGE, WI (Saturday, July 7, 2018) Following poor weather that forced a premature end to the racing program one week prior, it was double feature night at Jefferson Speedway on Saturday night. All seven divisions on hand were able to compete in two feature events, making for an action packed evening of racing. The two standouts in the premier division at Wisconsin’s Action Track on this particular evening were defending track champion, Dale Nottestad of Cambridge, and Lake Mills pilot, Shaun Scheel. Both drivers scored Late Model feature wins. The wins marked the second for each pilot on the 2018 season.
Following the completion of our heat races, thunderstorms forced the postponement of the remainder of our program. We will resume the second half of our scheduled program next Saturday, July 7. Following that, we will begin our regularly scheduled show.
CAMBRIDGE, WI (Saturday, June 23, 2018) After inheriting the lead just past the halfway point of the Bumper To Bumper of Edgerton 50 lap Late Model main event, Shaun Scheel raced away to pick up the win. The victory gives the Lake Mills pilot his first such win of the 2018 season.
CAMBRIDGE, WI (Saturday, June 16, 2018) Round two of the Badgerland Challenge Series invaded Wisconsin’s Action Track on Saturday night. The series of events pits the best drivers from Jefferson Speedway and Madison International Speedway in a four night challenge to see which track can prevail. On this particular night, it was Michael Grueneberg of Wisconsin Dells flexing his muscle on his way to back to back feature wins in the Late Model division.
JEFFERSON, WI (Saturday, June 9, 2018) Michael Grueneberg of Wisconsin Dells parked his mount in victory lane at Jefferson Speedway following the running of the Benninger Concrete and Construction 50 lap Late Model feature. A late race tangle between the leaders helped clear the way for Grueneberg to make his return to victory lane and give him his first feature win of the season.
Due to the impending poor weather predicted for the evening, the races scheduled for June 2 have been canceled. We will resume racing next Saturday, June 9, with a full program including Late Models, Sportsmen, Internationals, Hobby Stocks, Bandits and…
It has been a long time coming, but Paul Shafer Jr. and his crew finally broke through and celebrated their first ARCA Midwest Tour presented by SCAG Power Equipment victory during a Memorial Day weekend special at Jefferson Speedway, located between Cambridge and Jefferson, Wisconsin.
Shafer took over the lead from Dalton Zehr with 45 laps to go and then kept his distance from three-time Jefferson Speedway track champion Casey Johnson to end his long drought and get the long-awaited checkered flag.
The win, especially being the first one in the Tour, at Jefferson Speedway has a special meaning for Shafer and his longtime crew chief Chris Purdy.
“Now that the first one is out of the way, maybe we can get a couple more,” a smiling Shafer said after the race. “It’s awesome to get the first win here for a lot of reasons. One, it’s probably the short track in whole State of Wisconsin, especially with the way how they run it every week. During the Joe Shear Classic, we practiced on Saturday afternoon and we came over here and watched the races. The second is that my crew chief Chris Purdy grew up in the Janesville/Milton area and he ran here a lot. I think he won eight out of nine features one year. It means a lot to me, Chris and everyone on the team because many are from around here.”
Shafer, who was also the fast qualifier, started 13th and was up to second by lap 42 after passing Johnson was an early leader in the race. Shafer was trying to chase down Dalton Zehr for the top spot.
