Press Release

Sept 27, 2013 - Sunday, September 29th, the Mid American Stock Car Series returns to Rockford Speedway’s National Short Track Championships for the 21st straight year.

Mid-American’s best will compete for the brass ring for 75 laps. Among those mounting the challenge are three champions and two rookies and the veteran without a title leading the way.
Rockford’s 48th annual NSTC will also be host to the passing of the traveling Vercauteren Memorial Trophy. The Trophy will pass from last year’s race winner, Kenny Joosten, to this Sunday’s victor. The Vercauteren Trophy was born 24 years ago to honor a family that has dedicated their lives to the betterment of Stock car racing in the upper mid-west. Gary Vercauteren founded the Mid-American Stock Car Series and ran it until an untimely death on his way to Oktoberfest in 2005.

ELKO, Minn. (September 21, 2013) - Typically rookies don't make things look so simple. Then again, there hasn't been much typical about Dan Gilster's rookie season with the Mid-American Stock Car Series.

After fighting off some early-season gremlins, Gilster picked up his first win Saturday night at Elko Speedway in the Thunderstruck 30 presented by Bravo Trailers. He cruised from the pole-position, and led wire-to-wire in the caution-free feature event.

"It's pretty special," the West Salem, Wis., driver said. "This year is my first year doing a traveling series, and it's been a struggle at times."

Fort Atkinson, WI - Elko Speedway once again will host the Mid-American Stock Car Series for it’s 5th Annual Thunderstruck 93. The weekend is in memory of Dan Ryan and is produced to help fight ALS.

Once again, with three big shows remaining, the point battle is bubbling. A strong running Brad Keith from West Bend, WI leads the way on a quest for his first Mid-Am title. Three of the next five cars in his wake are not only veterans but also past Mid-Am champions. The 1996 champion Mark Pluer from Brookfield, WI and last year’s titleholder Jeremy Spoonmore from Somonauk, IL are nipping at Keith’s heels making sure if Keith is going to win it, he’s going to have to earn it. After a rough and tumble season and missing a couple races, the 2010 champ Lyle Nowak from Wausau, WI is 6th in the standings. But, after getting his second wind you can count on Nowak to be in the mix the rest of the season.
