The drivers of the Mid-American Stock Car Series (MASCS) return to action this Friday night May 16, for the second time in six days. This time, the 22-year-old series heads to Eastern Iowa, returning to Hawkeye Downs in Cedar Rapids.

Last year, the sportsman elite of MASCS made their first appearance at the half-mile since 2009. In that 45 lap event, West Bend Wisconsin’s Brad Keith pocketed the win, his first in Mid-American Stock Car Series competition. The win was the beginning of Keith’s strong summer of 2013, which propelled him to the Mid-American Stock Car Series championship.

(Kaukauna, WI - 5/10/2014) Simply put - Gary would have loved it.

The 25th running of the Mid-American Stock Car Series Vercauteren Memorial had all of the elements necessary for a great racing story. And the event’s namesake - series founder Gary Vercauteren - would have been the perfect guy to write it.
He could start his story noting there that there was a solid field of MASCS competitors returning to the track that was instrumental in the birth of the series - Wisconsin International Raceway - on a Chamber of Commerce day. And he could talk about his travels with the Bauknecht family, and the young racer who would eventually take home the day’s big trophy.

On a memorable day in MASCS history, Tyler Bauknecht held off three-time series champ Bill Prietzel to win the first Vercauteren Memorial run at WIR since 2008. The track had hosted 15 total Memorials, dating back to the series first season in 1993.

(Fort Atkinson, WI) If you’re chatting with someone from the Mid-American Stock Car Series at the organization’s next event, don’t be surprised if the conversation turns a bit nostalgic.

Saturday afternoon, May 10th, marks the return of MASCS to Wisconsin International Raceway (WIR) in Kaukauna, WI, and will feature the 25th running of the Vercauteren Memorial. Twenty six of the finest Mid-American Stock Cars representing six Upper Midwest states have pre-registered to once again thrill race fans at this exciting facility.
