LAWNKeepers of LaCrosse will present Mid-American drivers and teams Saturday, August 16, to the fans and friends at LaCrosse Fairgrounds Speedway. The Mid-Am teams will be bringing their “A” game to the famed 5/8-mile oval at the fairgrounds in West Salem, WI. Many will be using the opportunity to prepare for the 45th running of legendary Oktoberfest at LAX this fall.

LAWNKeepers is a complete array of lawn and yard management services covering a broad greater LaCrosse area in Wisconsin and Minnesota. Owner/President, Tom McClintock, is a familiar name at the LaCrosse Fairgrounds Speedway. He has participated at many events at his home track and he’s done it in several classes. McClintock even wielded a Mid-Am car for a few years. “I enjoy the Mid-American Series and am glad to help bring them to LAX”, McClintock says. “Mid-American always brings competitive racing, it will be a good show.”

HOLTZ BRINGS IT HOMEHOLTZ BRINGS IT HOMEJeff Holtz used his experience at the Slinger Super Speedway to help score his third win of the season at the Krebs Trucking 48 on the world’s fastest quarter mile oval. The win broke Lyle Nowak’s two race winning streak as well as keeping Holtz in the overall point lead.

Holtz survived a green, white, checkered finish in holding off Brad Keith for the win. “It’s tough passing on the outside,” said Holtz. “Once I could use the whole track it helped. Plus this car is a really good car, I’ve got to say. I raced the other car on the short tracks and I tore it up a little at Wausau, but we decided to bring this one here and got her going so I’m happy.”

Brian Holtz and Kenny Joosten led the field to the green with Joosten getting the early lead. Holtz would stay side by side for a few laps and even led lap before Joosten cleared for the lead on lap 5. Nowak and Ryan Gutknecht swapped third and fourth over the first few laps until Nowak cleared for third on lap 8.

HOMETOWN DUOHOMETOWN DUOIt’s not very often that you see an experienced veteran racer who frequently wins get emotional in Victory Lane. Yet when you consider all that has happened to Lyle Nowak and his race team in the last few years, when he climbed out of his car after getting the win in his home track, the emotion just bubbled over.

“There’s a lot of joy and a lot of satisfaction,” said Nowak. “When you race in your home town at your home track, everybody wants you to run good. Everybody hopes you can run good. The expectations to run good are high and you don’t always have the opportunity to do that. We’ve done this a long time and we’ve had way more disappointments than we’ve had successes and enjoyments. When you can win one like we did, I mean we had a rough year last year and things kind of snowballed where we had a bad crash on the highway and it affected our racing program and we just had to regroup. We came here to race last year and we really weren’t ready to do that. To come back this year and build some momentum through the beginning of the year and to accomplish this tonight, it’s pretty rewarding.”
