Who to Watch For:

Ty Majeski (91) and Dan Fredrickson (36) will be the drivers to watch today. Majeski is always fast in these Tour races, and Fredrickson has won both ARCA Midwest Tour races he has been in here.

Title Fight:

After winning the first race of the season, Andrew Morrissey leads the points over Dan Fredrickson by just two points.

The Track:

State Park Speedway, located near Wausau, Wisconsin, is what drivers will describe as a track of character. It is a 1/4 mile paved oval with different banking in the grooves.

Weather:

After a rainout yesterday, cars are on track today to make 100 laps under the overcast skies.

Next Series Race:

The next race for the series will take place on Saturday, May 27th at Jefferson Speedway in Wisconsin.

What Won the Race:

Ty Majeski arguably had the best car at the track, and was able to drive through traffic to win at State Park Speedway.

The Finish: 

1 91 Ty Majeski
2 77 Jonathan Eilen
3 75 Chris Weinkauf

The Skinny: 

Eilen had a fast car, and held off everyone for 75 laps, but Majeski had the fastest car even after the track became more slick. Eilen would go on to finish second, and Chris Weinkauf would finish third after being involved in an early caution.

Winning Quote:

“Obviously track position would have been nice to have, but at the end the best car prevailed. If you can’t get it done in 100 laps, you probably aren’t good enough to get it done.”

Winning Crew Chief: 

Toby Nuttleman

On the Move:

Chris Weinkauf was the driver who finished highest from where he started. He started 20th, and finished 3rd.

Biggest Loser:

Rich Schumann Jr. was the biggest loser after starting 4th, but finishing 21st in the feature.
