PORTAGE, Wis. (February 18, 2020) – The TUNDRA Super Late Model Series Powered by Wisconsin Potatoes finalized its 2020 schedule Tuesday afternoon. The series will once again visit six different venues around the state of Wisconsin.
The season opening event of the TUNDRA 2020 campaign is at Wisconsin International Raceway in Kaukauna on Saturday, May 16. The event moves back a week later this season to move off Mother’s Day Weekend. It will also begin at 2 p.m. as it had in year’s past. Dennis Prunty has been victorious in the last two season openers at the half-mile.
For the third straight year TUNDRA will headline the Bev Aschenbrenner Memorial at Marshfield Motor Speedway on Saturday, June 6. The sweeping half-mile has been home to plenty of action-packed TUNDRA racing. Last year Eugene Gregorich Jr. captured an emotional victory in the event.
Dells Raceway Park will host the third race of the TUNDRA season in what promises to be a blockbuster event on Saturday, July 4. For the second year TUNDRA will host the North American Cup Dedicated to Carl Wegner. Last season, Gabe Sommers scored his first ever series win at the third-mile.
From one bullring to the next, the fourth stop of the year will be at Wisconsin’s Action Track, Jefferson Speedway, on Saturday, July 18. The tricky quarter-mile has proven to be a make or break facility in each TUNDRA point battle. Last season’s event was lost to inclement weather, but two years prior, John Beale captured his first series win at Jefferson.
Another tight quarter-mile hosts the action of Round Five as TUNDRA heads to the foot of Rib Mountain and State Park Speedway in Wausau on Saturday, August 8. State Park has proved to host some of the most thrilling events, with each lap providing a new test for the drivers. Last season Casey Johnson dominated TUNDRA’s event at State Park, helping him seal up the 2019 Championship.
TUNDRA will once again crown a Champion at Central Wisconsin’s Power Playground, Golden Sands Speedway, on Monday, September 7. The Labor Day special has become a favorite of racers and fans alike. Last year Gabe Sommers scored his second victory of the season in front of an enthusiastic hometown crowd at the third-mile.
More information about the TUNDRA Super Late Model Series 2020 season will be available in the coming weeks. The season promises to see the return of past Champions, tough veterans, upstart rookies, and a few new faces that are sure to catch the attention of race fans across the Midwest.
