THANKS FOR A GREAT 2015 SEASON!

KIDS BIG WHEEL RACES ON WITT FORD NIGHT AT THUNDERHILL

Posted under News on August 15th, 2012

(Sturgeon Bay, WI) With only 3 nights remaining, the action at Prestige Yacht Coatings Thunderhill Raceway is sure to be hot and heavy for Witt Peninsula Night this Saturday, August 18. Witt Ford has dealerships in Crivitz and Sturgeon Bay. To see what Witt Ford can do for you, stop in or check out their website at wittauto.com.

The annual Kids Big Wheel Races will also be on hand this Saturday and take place on the front stretch at intermission.

Last week saw four of the six division point leaders encounter issues allowing for some of the tightest points battles in recent history. As we head into week 10 James Tebon’s stranglehold in the Kelsey Racing IMCA Modifieds hasn’t wavered as a result of a second place finish last week. Tebon has held the point lead since opening night where he picked up the first of 5 feature wins this season. Billy LeMieux sits solidly in the second spot and is still in title contention 25 points behind Tebon.

Defending Champion Troy Muench still sits as leader in the Algoma Motors IMCA Stock Cars, but his nicely padded point lead was erased when he suffered a flat tire last week. Dave Bouche has been consistent and mechanically sound all season which has pushed him to second in standings, Bouche trails the leader by a mere 2 points. Jeremy Wiitala scored his first feature of the season at the right time receiving max points while the point leader faltered. Wiitala trails Muench by just 3 points. This battle looks to be one for the ages and will come down to the final lap of the 2012 season.

Jarred VanLaanen’s bid for his first championship in the Butchs Auto IMCA Sport Mods took a huge blow when his engine grenaded while running second with just 3 laps remaining in the feature. Second place points runner Bernie Reinhardt used this too his advantage closing the gap to just 5 points. Kelsy Hayes busted out of her slump of bad luck and trails VanLaanen by 9 markers. Title contender leader Randy LeMieux Jr. never made it to the green flag suffering transmission issues before the night even started. This pulled LeMieux Jr out of the title hunt for the season.

As of 3 weeks ago Tom Brumlic lead the LaVine’s Ice IMCA Hobby Stocks by a whopping 20 points over Derek Moede. As they had into action this weekend Brumlic’s lead has shrunk to just 2 points. Brumlic suffered a flat tire mid race while Moede scored second. This allowed CJ Weckler to close in as well, he sits 13 points back of Brumlic.

The Lackie Rentals Street Stocks are led by Dennis Weidner who again needed his backup car after wrecking in the heat race. This cost him points to Jimmy Anderson in the battle for the championship. Anderson sits just 8 back of the leader. Despite missing a night of racing Geno Sternard is now within striking distance for the title, he’s 15 points back of Weidner.

Joey Scoon looks to have the title wrapped up in the Feisty Fours proved aliens don’t abduct him. He has a 35 point lead over Matt Sargent.

HISTORIC NIGHT FOR LEMIEUX

(Sturgeon Bay, WI – 7/29/2015)

Chances are, Billy LeMieux will long remember the last week of July, 2015.

After winning two features on Sunday, he came back to repeat the feat Wednesday night as Thunderhill Raceway’s program shifted to midweek to open the Door County Fair.

Joining LeMieux in victory lane on the night were Tyler Hackett in the Modifieds, Randy LeMieux, Jr in the Sport Mods, Travis LuMaye in the Hobby Stocks and Nathan Delsart in the Thunder Trucks.

Winning two features in a night is a slick trick on its own, but four features in a single week had never been…
