1Las Cruces, NM (November 12) – With the craziness that was the 2020 season and the fact that we (FYE Motorsports Promotions, Ogilvie Raceway and Gondik Law Speedway) were thrown into the unprecedented situation of moving the Mod Nationals from Ogilvie to Superior with just a week’s notice back in May of this year, the discussion began about possibly expanding the weekend for 2021 and we have just worked out details to make that a reality.

Inaugural Can-Am Clash Cancelled

1Superior, WI (October 11) – The Can-Am Clash, scheduled for October 16th and 17th has been cancelled due to the cold forecast.

Event promoter Chris Stepan said 'we always hope for highs at least in the 50s and lows in the 40s for this event to take place and the forecast just doesn't show that it's going to be warm enough this coming week. That, along with mid week rain has made the decision pretty easy to cancel the weekend.'

Thanks for understanding.


Pat Doar Defends MTH Fall Classic presented by FYE Motorsports Title

1Ogilvie, MN (October 10) – Saturday night was the second and final night of the 17th Annual MTH Fall Classic presented by FYE Motorsports. The Limited Late Models were added to Saturday Night’s program which brought the official car count to 322 a new Fall Classic Event record! 

11 Limited Late Models entered the pits and their heat was the first race of the night. Dylan Kromschroeder and Joe Provinzino brought the drivers to green. Provinzino built up a solid lead before the first caution flew. As the race progressed, cars began dropping to the infield like flies and as the checkers were raised, only four cars remained. Provinzino took the win. Read More >>


17th Annual MTH Fall Classic Night One Results

The sun was shining, the air was warm, and the pits of Wagamon’s Ogilvie Raceway were packed for night one of the 17th Annual MTH Fall Classic presented by FYE Motorsports. By the time the green waved, 313 drivers had signed into the pits and fans were ready for a night of WISSOTA Dirt Track Racing. All eight WISSOTA Classes were on the event’s agenda and night one featured all of their heats.

The WISSOTA Street Stocks were the first class to hit the clay, and as the green waved, the drivers raced three wide. Jim Gullikson claimed the early lead, however Justin Vogel tracked him down and went on to take the win. Andrew Hanson gave Danny Richards a run for his money in the second heat, and with a few laps to go, Hanson was successful and took the win from Richards’ #3R. Dustin Doughty grabbed the lead in in the third heat race, but as Zach Elward closed in, Doughty’s car drifted high in the turn and suffered a mechanical break. Elward assumed the lead and went on to the race win. The final Street Stock heat was led in its entirety and won by Adam Soltis. Read More >>


Aaron Turnbull Becomes First Back-to-Back Seitz Memorial Champion in Photo Finish

1The 14th annual John Seitz Memorial will be one that is talked about for years to come. Fifty WISSOTA Late Models made the trek to the three-tenths mile bullring of River Cities Speedway in hopes of claiming the $9,200 check on Saturday night, but it came down to two previous Seitz Memorial champions in a classic dash to the checkers. In a photo finish with two-time Seitz Memorial champion AJ Diemel, Aaron Turnbull picked up his second consecutive title by a mere 0.138 seconds, equating to a half car length.

“I thought we were a third place car there at the beginning. I guess we had enough there at the end,” said a shocked Turnbull in victory lane. “Last year was bigger because my family was here. That was just so awesome to have those guys here with me. But this is unbelievable.” Read More >>

4th Annual Great Lake Border Battle Sees Several Changes
Late Models Removed From Weekend Schedule
Modifieds Now Racing For $1,500, $2,000 & $2,500
WISSOTA Mod Fours Added All Three Nights

1The 4th running of the Great Lakes Border Battle fueled by Superior Fuel Company, scheduled for July 2nd, 3rd and 4th, 2020 at the Gondik Law Speedway in Superior, Wisconsin is undergoing several event changes leading up to the 4th of July holiday weekend. 

The first of three event changes will see the WISSOTA Late Models removed from the schedule on Friday, July 3rd and Saturday, July 4th. Event promoter Chris Stepan said ‘with Cedar Lake adding the World of Outlaws on both nights of their WoO event and with Mississippi Thunder having a pair of Dirt Kings events those nights now as well, we are going to be a good neighbor and release our Late Models so that all three events aren’t fighting over the same drivers and so that all of the events can be successful. I reached out to approximately 50 local Late Model drivers this week and it was pretty apparent that all three events were going to be targeting the same core group of drivers, so instead of each of us having a dozen cars, we decided to bow out and let the drivers go to another event if they choose.’ >>READ MORE
