Racing season in Wisconsin concludes Saturday with the Alive For Five Series finale at Dells Raceway Park. The Falloween 150 has become the traditional season-ending Super Late Model event in the Badger State, and this year’s event will feature a strong field with 30 cars already entered.
Ty Majeski enters Saturday’s event coming off a season where he became the first driver to win the Slinger Nationals, Gandrud Auto Group 250 and Oktoberfest 200 in the same calendar year. He will be looking for his third-straight win in the Falloween after winning in 2017 and last year.
Ryan Farrell leads the Alive For Five Series standings by just three points over recently-crowned ARCA Midwest Tour champion Casey Johnson going into Saturday’s race. Both drivers have scored wins with the series, with Farrell winning the Trickle 99 and Casey Johnson scoring the victory in the Badger State 125.
Defending Alive For Five champion Dalton Zehr is also a winner in the Alive For Five Series in 2020, as well as the TUNDRA Super Late Model stop at Dells on the Fourth of July. He is looking for his first Falloween 150 win.
Inaugural Falloween 150 winner Andrew Morrissey will be back to try to add a second win to his credit. He is coming off a third-place run at Oktoberfest two weeks ago.
Justin Mondeik will attempt to cap off a career year with a Falloween 150 win Saturday afternoon. He has won 14 races across three different tracks and earned track championships at State Park Speedway and Golden Sands Speedway, while finishing outside the top ten just once in 45 starts this season.
Big 8 Series champion Max Kahler will be looking to add a second big Super Late Model win to his accolades after winning the National Short Track Championships at Rockford Speedway last month. Former ARCA Midwest Tour champion Dan Fredrickson and five-time Snowball Derby champion Rich Bickle are also entered.
A full entry list can be found below.
The inaugural Falloween 150 took place in 2015 with Andrew Morrissey taking the win after passing Ty Majeski with 15 to go. The 2016 edition saw Morrissey and Majeski go at it for the win again, but neither driver would go to victory lane after they tangled on the white flag lap. Casey Johnson inherited the lead and held off Natalie Decker and Bobby Kendall on a green-white-checkered to steal the win.
Majeski would finally break through in 2017, scoring his first win in the Falloween 150 after a fierce battle with Johnson during a green-white-checkered finish. After the 2018 version was canceled due to Mother Nature, Majeski dominated last year’s event to go back-to-back.
Start times for Saturday’s racing has recently been moved up an hour due to the cold temperatures expected in the area. Racing is now slated to begin at 2:30 p.m. CT. The Midwest Truck Series will also crown a champion, while the 602 Late Models and Legends will also be in action.
Speed51 will be on hand at Dells Raceway Park for the Falloween 150. Highlights will be available on Speed51.TV in the days after Saturday’s event.
