Cole yach driving the Chris Wimmer/WC2 car that’s pretty cool to!

5:02
Today’s coverage of practice and qualifying of the first day of Oktoberfest is presented by McGunegill Engine Performance.

MEP has been a leader in developing high performance, cost effective race engine solutions. The family run business, now owned and operated by DeWaine McGunegill, has led the development of the highly successful Sealed Engine program for Super Late Models in the last nine years. Their innovative Sealed Engine package has drastically cut the cost of purchasing a competitive Super Late Model engine. McGunegill Engine Performance has also been a top builder and rebuilder of crate engines competing in Pro Late Model divisions including the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour Presented by GM Performance Parts for several years.

5:01
Sportsmen cars are out not now for a quick practice session.
4:58
Safety officials are currently putting down some oil dry on the frontstretch. Trying to take care of a little weeping issue.
4:54
They are going to give the La Crosse Grand National Sportsmen a quick practice session to help put the finishing touches on the drying process.
4:51
When it does go live, Speed51.com will not be doing any Trackside Now lap-by-lap coverage. We can post results if we receive them.
4:49
Correct..when the racing program is about to start, that is when the PPV will get underway. We will also let you know when it is live.

Comment From Christian 

ppv doesnt start until the first heat race right?

4:49
Also sounds like they will do what they can to hurry the show along tonight. They don’t want to take any chances with the weather in the area.
4:43
Chuck Deery, was just on local radio station Kicks 106.3FM and said they are looking at starting on time tonight.
4:41

4:40
The La Crosse Late Models are now the only cars on the track for practice.
4:39
Having 40+ cars for today’s Futures event could yield a high car count for tomorrow’s Dick Trickle “99”. Last year, 64 cars were entered for that event. In 2011, 72 cars.
4:37
Right now it appears that the cars are going at about 75% throttle.

Comment From Hunter 

Lake Geneva Wisconsin so go swanny

4:32
Track is starting to dry more. Most of it looks real good. We should be qualifying soon.
4:30
Chuck Deery, Oktoberfest Promoter, told us that he is excited to hear that fans from South Carolina and Arizona have already sent notes to us today that they plan on watching the Pay-Per-View for this weekend. Where else is everyone from?
4:26
Track drying continues. We can see some good dry spots around the track. Many of the La Crosse weekly divisions are out helping to dry the track.

The Super Late Model Futures cars are lining up for qualifying. Looks like car #62 John Heath will be the first one out.
4:09
They have stopped the track drying for the moment to allow for a crossover. Many teams were in the camping area and are returning to the pits.
4:07
Interesting note about tonight’s Futures race. The race is open to drivers under the age of 30 or drivers over 30 who has never competed in one of the top Oktoberfest events in the past. One driver in the over 30 category is Pete Kempf. Kempf is the car owner of Steve Holzhausen’s late model and will be driving the #97 car tonight.
