Regular Race Program plus Late Models (Sunday, July 6th)


Regular Race Program this Sunday night plus Late Models..

With the help of Jackpot Junction Casino & Hotel, Redwood Speedway in Redwood Falls, MN will host a regular race program this Sunday night. With the IMCA Modifieds taking the night off, Late Models will take center stage and run the final event of the evening. Each division will run their regular point inversion for this holiday weekend event other than the Late Model division.

The races have been tremendous in the last month including this past Sunday night’s IMCA Hobby Stock and IMCA Stock Car finales. Cory Probst held off a final lap charge from Justin Luinenburg to take the victory in that division’s A-main while Dean Nething held off two of the best in the business in Dan Mackenthun and Matt Speckman to score his first ever division victory.

Because the Late Models will be added to the program, adult admission will be $15.00 and students (13-17) will be $10.00. Fans 7-12 will be $5.00 with all kids six and under getting in free. Track, regional, state and national points will be awarded in all four IMCA sanctioned divisions at the track this Sunday night with a special 6:00 start time (draw cutoff at 5:00). “We’re going to start at 6:00 this week to give the fans a chance to get back home from the holiday weekend and also to give the track a chance to take a little less abuse under the sunlight,” commented Prouty. “The track held up well for our Friday night event for the Sprint Cars because we were able to start a little later so we’re going to try running a little later this Sunday night. We originally canceled the Late Model special but yesterday we had an overwhelming amount of interest that we didn’t know was there so we decided to go ahead with it.”

Although they’ll be idle this Sunday night, Brandon Beckendorf is your current IMCA Modified track point leader by a mere four markers over second place running Jerry Wren of Howard Lake. Dalton Magers, Justin Anderson and Trent Loverude are all members of the top five as well for the open wheel division.
