Mid-American owner, Doug Strasburg comments on the change, “Opening a new track in this racing economic climate is a challenge to say the least. It may take adjustments to get some footing. Mid-American wishes them the best and hopes the Mid-American family will support this track as well as others in their communities.”

Fresh off his win Tuesday at the Milwaukee Mile, Mark Pluer from Brookfield, WI found River Valley Victory Lane at State Park Speedway Thursday night, picking up his second win in as many days.

During the pre-race warm up laps, Chris Storey of Burlington, WI was forced to take an early exit. This resulted in the Indiana boys setting the pace for the field. As Stephen Cox of Indianapolis and Tim Fulford of Solsbury took the green, Fulford was able to snag the lead and continue on for 10 laps. Starting in eleventh position, it didn’t take long for Pluer to find his way to the front of the field. He used the outside groove at State Park Speedway and leaped from fourth to first in two laps as the first ten laps ticked off the lap counter of the 40-lap feature.

(MILWAUKEE, Wis.) – There was no track that Mark Pluer wanted to win at more than the Milwaukee Mile, and on Tuesday night, the local driver finally cashed in on a Mid-American Stock Car Series victory, fending off Bill Prietzel’s late-race charge and collecting the trophy in the Howie Lettow Memorial 30 on America’s Legendary Oval.

When the green flag finally waved on the Mid-American Stock Car Series Keith’s Marina/Gordy Boucher Ford of West Bend 30, Brian Holtz hustled into the top spot, easing past Ron Vandermeir as the 29-car field went three- and even four-wide behind him. Drivers continued to try and maneuver around America’s Legendary Oval as Holtz paced the tightening pack.

The leader fell off the pace a little on lap five and Wisconsin hotshoe Marv Flick closed up behind, peeking to the inside before Holtz slammed the door shut. Longtime series veteran Bobby Gutknecht took advantage of the track’s wide racing surface and utilized the high side to shoot past Flick for the bridesmaid’s position while Holtz extended his edge to five car lengths.
