KEITH, NOWAK, PLUERKEITH, NOWAK, PLUERTOMAH, Wis. (May 25, 2013) – There are very few race tracks in the Midwest Wausau’s Lyle Nowak hasn’t seen with his Mid-American Stock Car Series racer. If history is any indication, he might be seeking them out soon.

Just as he did a couple of seasons ago in his Norway MASCS debut, Lyle Nowak debuted and captured the win and the Kim Parsons Memorial Trophy in the Veterans Memorial 40 at Veterans Raceway Park in Tomah Friday night.

A LITTLE BIT OF HISTORY AND A BIG FUTURE

The racetrack was built in 1964 as a 1/4-mile asphalt oval originally called "Tomah-Sparta Speedway". In 1996, the track was purchased Dave Thompson. Under the ownership of Dave Thompson, the track was renamed "Excalibur Motorsports Speedway". It was reconfigured and paved into its current configuration of 3/8-mile asphalt oval. In November of 2012, Mike Inglett purchased the track with his son Jon Inglett. Mike and Jon, both veterans of the military, Mike serving 3 years in Vietnam for the Army and Jon serving 5 1/2 years (Iraq and Afghanistan) in the Marine Corps, made the decision to make a fresh start for the track by renaming and branding with the name of "Veterans Raceway Park".

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (May 17, 2013) - It had been four years since the Mid-American Stock Car Series visited Hawkeye Downs Speedway in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. As it turns out, the wait was well worth it.

Sixteen drivers from six states converged on the historic half-mile in Eastern Iowa Friday night, and when the dust settled on a caution-free 45 lap feature, it was Brad Keith standing tall above the rest.

Keith, who started in the seventh position, muscled to the front of the pack and stayed ahead of an experienced field to take his first Mid-American Stock Car Series checkered flag.

Rockford segment two winner Jack Stern would lead the field to green and race side-by-side with local favorite Brian Gibson for the early race lead. Gibson would wrestle the lead from Stern via the high side of the track and pace the pack through the opening laps. Following Gibson on the high side was Lyle Nowak. Nowak would take second from Stern on lap two, and immediately challenge Gibson for the lead. After a tight side-by-side battle, Nowak assumed the lead on lap six.
