PORTAGE, Wis. (September 20, 2021) – It feels like these two have met a time or two.
Former Slinger Champions Steve Apel and Dennis Prunty will cross paths again in TUNDRA Super Late Model Series Round Six Dedicated to Carl Wegner this Sunday at Dells Raceway Park.
Prunty has a decorated history with TUNDRA. He claimed the first series Championship when the series was rebranded as TUNDRA and raced exclusively at DRP in 2012. More recently he ripped off a string of three straight wins in series action at Wisconsin International Raceway before his streak was snapped in this year’s season opener.
Apel has had some success with the series, as well. He set fast time in 2013 when the series first visited Slinger. He also picked up a win in the 2017 series opener at WIR. Apel holds five track titles at the World’s Fastest Quarter-Mile and will hope to find success at DRP after limited appearances.
Aside from coming out on top of the rivalry, both drivers will have some extra incentive to visit Victory Lane in the 105 lap main Sunday. Both drivers have strong ties to Carl Wegner as much of their success was powered by engines from Wegner Automotive.
Round Six Dedicated to Carl Wegner takes place next Sunday, September 26 at Dells Raceway Park. Qualifying is scheduled for 12:30 with racing at 2 pm. TUNDRA will be joined by the DRP Sportsman and American Super Cup Series.
Dells Raceway Park is located at N1070 Smith Road just north of downtown Wisconsin Dells. For more information visit http://www.dellsracewaypark.com
