Jefferson, WI- Weekly Late Models will join in the action on Saturday night May 25 at Jefferson Speedway as part of the ‘Salute the Troops 100’ for the ARCA Midwest Tour Super Late Models. The first ever Showdown Match Races and Weekly Late Model Throwdown join a full card of racing which also includes the Road Warriors at ‘Wisconsin’s Action Track’. The series of Match races for weekly Late Model from across the state will place man and machine head to head for five laps with the winner of each round moving onto the finale. Additionally, those same cars will be placed into a 25 lap Throwdown Feature event.
“This is something Terry Tucker and I have been scheming for some time.” Noted Midwest Tour’s Gregg McKarns. “We wanted to do something completely different for the Late Models, I think this fits the bill.” All cars will be seeded based on the best of three qualifying laps, with $200 being awarded to the fastest car. Cars will then be placed head to head in 5 lap Match Races with the winner moving onto the next round and securing the prize money for each round, ranging from $50 up to $150 for the final round. Then all weekly Late Model drivers will be placed into the 30 lap Throwdown feature which pays $500 to win, making it possible to win $1,000 plus the bonus tires. Each qualifying car will receive two Hoosier D-800 tires for the event which allows up to two new tires and any two D-800 tires (do NOT have to be from a weekly bank) with a maximum tread depth of 5/32”. Weekly Jefferson Late Model rules will be used for this non-points event.
CAMBRIDGE, WI (Saturday, May 11, 2019) On a chilly evening at Jefferson Speedway, the action on the track was hot and the racing was intense. Michael Grueneberg of Wisconsin Dells pounced on the lead as the Papa Murphy’s Pizza Late Model main event got underway. Grueneberg remained in control of the 50 lap feature en route, holding off any other challengers, to pick up his first win of 2019.
CAMBRIDGE, WI (Saturday, May 4, 2019) On a beautiful Saturday evening in Southern Wisconsin, the roar of race engines filled the air as Jefferson Speedway kicked off the 2019 season. The season opener presented by Serenity Concepts marked the beginning of another year of intense racing action. When the dust settled, Jason Erickson parked his new machine in victory lane following a very entertaining 50 lap Late Model main event. The win ended a drought for the Yelk Motorsports team which has lasted since 2016. But a return to the form that led to 4 track championships appeared to aid the Fort Atkinson pilot as he sliced his way toward the front of the field on the way to the victory.
Due to the extremely poor weather outlook for this Saturday.....including cold temps, blustery winds and the possibility of accumulating snow...we have been forced to postpone the 2019 season opener until Saturday, May 4.
CAMBRIDGE, WI (Friday, April 19, 2019) As the days begin to grow longer and the temps begin to rise, it can mean only one thing……racing season is upon us! A new season of weekly racing intensity is getting ready…

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. Johnson continued his winning ways over the weekend, claiming top honors in qualifying and then winning the first of twin 60 lap feature events. Johnson’s late run up to second in the later 60 lapper netted him the overall championship of the two day event. The title is Johnson’s third straight and fourth in the last five years. His four Wisconsin State Championships tie him with Ron Bishofberger for most all time.
CAMBRIDGE, WI (Saturday, September 8, 2018) The final night of points racing at Wisconsin’s Action Track in the 2018 season provided some great racing to decide who would be crowned champion. Three divisions came down to the final race of the season to determine the champ on Season Championship Night presented by Griffin Ford Lincoln of Fort Atkinson. When the dust settled in the Late Model division, it was Dale Nottestad of Cambridge claiming a record fifth championship in Jefferson Speedway’s premier division.
