WEST SALEM, Wis. (Ocotber 5, 2013) – The August 24 visit of the Mid-American Stock Car Series to LaCrosse Fairgrounds Speedway proved to be truly critical to the outcome of the 2013 version of Oktoberfest. The late-summer preview gave a glimpse of a rising hometown star and a critical moment in the 2013 title chase.

Dan Gilster set fast time and finished third in the August race at LFS. He was not able to keep pace with Jeremy Spoonmore and winner Bill Prietzel. This time, however, with a large and bias crowd on hand, the Mid-American Rookie of the Year was not denied.

WEST SALEM, Wis. (October 3, 2013) – We’ve all been there. Head in the textbook, reading about some guy who did something decades ago, wondering if the clock can tick any faster. Then, more than likely, we’ve heard the quote – or some variation of it – from George Santayana.

“Those who don’t learn from history are doomed to repeat it.”

In last year’s Mid-American Stock Car Series appearance at Oktoberfest Jeremy Spoonmore rose from the ashes of his fiery disappointment from a week before to overcome a 45-point gap and steal the title from Lyle Nowak. This year Spoonmore sits 57 points back of current MASCS point leader Brad Keith, who has studied last year’s situation as though it were an upcoming section of the SATs.

Keith’s objective to pass the test this season – stay out of trouble on Saturday at LaCrosse Fairgrounds Speedway.

(September 29, 2013) – James Swan picked up his second National Short Track Championships 75-lap Mid-American Stock Car Series feature win Sunday afternoon at Rockford Speedway. Swan also inscribed his name on the Vercauteren Memorial Trophy for the second time since 2006.

The Five-time MASCS Champion swiped the lead from Jeremy Spoonmore on lap six, and pulled away from last year’s titlist on several restarts over the remainder of the feature event. Swan was glad to return to his roots after racing exclusively in Super Late Models this season.

“These cars are a lot of fun to drive,” Swan said. “I love racing them, I love racing with these guys and I miss these guys.”
