Mark Mackesy seeks TUNDRA Hat Trick at State Park Speedway


PORTAGE, WI  – There’s a reason he’s called the King of State Park Speedway. With four Championships and 58 features wins, Mark Mackesy is sure to be one to watch when the TUNDRA Super Late Model Series visits the quarter-mile in Wausau this Saturday, August 8.

Mackesy has won two of the five events TUNDRA has held at State Park Speedway. He reigned supreme in a spirited battle with an emerging Derek Kraus in 2016 to score his first ever series win. Two years later he outdueled the likes of Mike Lichtfeld and Casey Johnson to defend his home turf.

A win Saturday would put Mackesy in the TUNDRA history books alongside Dalton Zehr as the only driver to win more than two races at a single venue. He and Zehr are also the only two drivers to win consecutive TUNDRA events. Mackesy did so by backing up his 2016 State Park win with a win at Golden Sands.

If he is to keep his streak of winning every other TUNDRA Wausau visit alive, Mackesy can look back to a strong Second Place finish last season. Much like his two wins, Mackesy surged through the field late, but was unable to challenge eventual race winner Casey Johnson.

Much like last season, Mackesy can expect some tough company up front, including drivers who have picked up feature wins and had excellent runs at Wausau this season. “The King” will be sure to hear from some of the usual State Park Speedway suspects Justin Mondeik, Brock Heinrich, Travis Volm, and Dillon Mackesy. What’s more, he’ll have a pack of hungry TUNDRA Travelers looking to dethrone him.

TUNDRA will be joined by the Wisconsin Sport Trucks, SPS Pure Stocks, and SPS Mini-Stocks.  Qualifying is scheduled for 5:45 with racing at 7.

State Park Speedway is located at 14771 North Mountain Road in Wausau, Wis. For more information visit www.stateparkspeedway.com
