Stout TUNDRA Field Ready To Rumble State Park Speedway

PORTAGE, WI – The TUNDRA Super Late Model Series will have no shortage of contenders to visit Victory Lane this Saturday, August 8 at State Park Speedway for Round Three of the 2020 campaign. Nearly 30 drivers have already pre-entered.

Among some of the notables are former TUNDRA State Park winners Mark Mackesy (2016, 2018) and Casey Johnson (2019).

Johnson holds a one-point lead over Round Two winner Gabe Sommers and will look to increase his title chances with another strong run. Last season Johnson all but dominated the race, cruising to the lead and never looking back.  Behind him, Mackesy made a late-race charge to Second. Jordan Devoy rounded out the podium.

While Johnson and Mackesy will be looking for another trip to State Park victory lane in TUNDRA action, a pair of drivers who have already captured victories at State Park Speedway in 2020 will be hoping to capture their first wins under the series banner. Both Justin Mondeik and leading EPYK Media rookie Brock Heinrich have scored wins at the quarter-mile. Both have expressed confidence in Saturday’s event.

As for other names to watch, Sommers may be the hottest in TUNDRA action, having won three of the last five series events since July of last year. He is a past Detjens Memorial winner at the facility, and another win would go a long way in the young driver’s quest for his first Super Late Model title.

Section 37 Axe House / Club Forest Bar Fast Qualifier from Dells Raceway Park, Mike Lichtfeld, is looking to keep his title hopes alive, as well. He has had mixed success at Wausau, but has proven to be strong enough to challenge for race wins. The same can be said for Colin Reffner, who is looking to shake off the bad luck of Dells and Jefferson to vault back up the standings. He is a past Fast Qualifier of the event.

Round Three will bring a turnabout of teammates in the TUNDRA field. John Beale tags in for Dalton Zehr, just five points out of the point lead. Beale has won features in CWRA action at Wausau, and has a past TUNDRA podium there too.

James Swan will jump back into TUNDRA action for the first time since 2016 as the teammate of Jefferson Fast Qualifier Jordan Devoy. Mackesy will tag in for Top Ten point-getter Kevin Kneuse, while Nick Egan will make his TUNDRA debut in place of his dad Mike, and former SPS track Champion Jeremy Lepak will get behind the wheel of the Mackville Motorsports machine.

The visit will also see some tough competition coming from local competitors including Travis Volm, Dillon Mackesy, Kolton Guralski, and Parker Retzlaff in the Wayne Brevik-owned 711.

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
