PORTAGE, WI – Officials for the TUNDRA Super Late Model Series released the 2015 schedule Friday. The fifth season for the series will include six stops at six tracks, spanning from May to September.
For the second straight season TUNDRA will open at Wisconsin International Raceway with a Saturday afternoon race. The May 9 event is scheduled for a 2 p.m. start time. Last season eventual series Champion Dalton Zehr bested a field of 41 cars.
Wisconsin’s Action Track Jefferson Speedway will play host to the second event of the season on June 20. An event that is gaining in popularity last season saw Casey Johnson complete the sweep at his home track.
TUNDRA returns to LaCrosse Fairgrounds Speedway prior to kicking off the Fourth of July holiday on Friday, July 3. The series made a stop at LaCrosse on July 3 in 2013. Reagan May took home a popular win by holding off Donny Reuvers and Adam Royle this past season.
The birthplace of TUNDRA will host Round Four on July 18. Dells Raceway Park was the home for history this past season when Ty Majeski became the youngest winner in series history.
The newest track to host a TUNDRA event will be State Park Speedway. The event is scheduled for Saturday, August 1.
A sixth event will be added to the schedule at a later time. The event is anticipated to be added as a September date.
Series officials surveyed competitors this off-season, finding that six races was optimal for most drivers.
“As a series, two of the most important things for us is cutting costs and listening to our teams,” said series representative Matt Panure. “The move from eight races to six should help teams keep costs down. Most of them are already weekly competitors, so we hope this will help them have the chance to join us while still going for that local title.”
The series will host an informational meeting at this weekend’s Midwest Racers’ Expo in Delevan, Wis. The meeting will take place at 1 p.m. on Saturday afternoon.
