KAUKAUNA, WI – The Jurkovic name is quite familiar to those in the greater Green Bay and Kaukauna area. It is also quite familiar to those within short track auto racing circles. Boris Jurkovic, cousin to former Green Bay Packer Defensive Lineman John Yurkovic will be racing in Tuesday night’s (August 4) Gandrud Auto Group 250 at Wisconsin International Raceway. Yurkovic, the racer, is an accomplished Super Late Model driver and will be joining top drivers from across the region and nation as the ‘Stars and Cars’ of the ARCA Midwest Tour make their annual stop at the half-mile paved D-shaped oval.

His most recent special event win came at Berlin (MI) Raceway’s Battle at Berlin 251 last season. He also counts the All-American 400 at Nashville (TN), Winchester 400 (IN) and Bettenhausen Memorial at Illiana (IN) Motor Speedway amongst his accomplishments.
