Wissota Late Model Challenge Series
Kaanta Scores 3rd Win Of The Season.
On Friday June 29th at ABC Raceway, John Kaanta picked up his 3rd win of the season as 18 Late Models took the track for the main event. The MyRacePass Redraw was key for the 85 team as they were able to figure out the right seat cushion from Powers & Associates Optometrists to draw to start on the pole.
Joe Provo Racewear Heat 1 winner was Jake Redetzke. Next up was the Dirt Track Supply Heat Race #2 and Lance Matthees was the winner of that. The winner of the Richmond Gear Heat #3 was Darrell Nelson.
Nelson was the QA1 Highest Passing Points Award winner. The others that made the redraw with Nelson were Redetzke, Kaanta, Fegers, Doar, McMann, Matthees, and Peterlin.
For the main event Kaanta and Matthees made up the front row. Fegers and McMann in row 2, Redetzke and Doar in row 3, Nelson and Peterlin in row 4.
Kaanta would hold off the pack and pick up the Out-Pace Racing Products Half Way Leader Award and grab his 3rd feature win of the 2018 Wollak Construction WISSOTA Late Model Challenge Series Presented by QA1.
The Speedwerx Hard Charger for the event was Steve Laursen who passed 5 cars to finish in the 8th position.
