Oshkosh, September 4- Friday turned out a hot, muggy night for the final regular season race a the Oshkosh SpeedZone Raceway. Three of the four title chases need to be decided while the other 3 just needed the final stamp to make it official.
This weekend is going to be a busy weekend. Today is the Dairyland Vintage AMA National Championship event and Sunday is the George Scheffler Memorial / Hales Corners Reunion, Corn Belt Clash.
The George Scheffler Memorial Corn Belt Clash has been canceled due to the weather. It will be rescheduled for Sunday the 30th.
Pit area will open at noon, Grandstands at 3 with qualifying starting at 4 with racing to follow.
Grandstand admission is $20 for adults, students 11 to 15 $10. Children 10 and under free.
Pit passes are $30.00.
Divisions will be Corn Belt Late Models, IMCA style Modifieds and Grand Nationals.
First of all I would like to thank Woody from Thunderhill, Tom from Seymour and Eric and the group from Dodge County for taking my call tonight about racing this weekend. It is not our intension to do any kind of harm to any of these 3 tracks I listed. We are going to do our best to get the George Scheffler Memorial, Hales Corners Reunion / Corn Belt Clash in on Friday but we needed a back up plan for this event. Seeing all the Drivers will be in the area for Friday and Satur...day it was a the best for us to try a rain date for Sunday instead of trying to reschedule the race at a later time which we looked at and there is really no open dates.
If we do rain out, that is if we do, we will run the same divisions on Sunday, Late Models, IMCA style Modifieds (Non sanction) and the Grand Nationals. It is not a track points night for the Mods or Grand Nationals but it will be the final round for King of the Ring. Times for Sunday have not been decided as of yet but we are going to do what ever we can do to get the show in on Friday.
Hopefully everyone understands and will support us with our decision.
We are going to do what we can to get the race in on Friday but if Mother Nature causes an issue we will rain date to Sunday. Times to be determined.
The payout that is posted is based on 40 cars. If there is more than 40 cars the total purse will change.
August 28th is the Corn Belt Clash / George Scheffler Memorial and final round of the "King of the Ring" for the IMCA Modifieds.
The Late Models will be racing for $7,000.00 to win. The Modifieds will be racing for $1000.00 to win and the Grand Nationals will be racing for $500.00 to win.
