PORTAGE, Wis. (September 23, 2021) – Luke Fenhaus has taken the Wisconsin racing scene by storm in 2021. This Sunday he’ll try his hand with the TUNDRA Super Late Model Series in Round Six Dedicated to Carl Wegner at Dells Raceway Park.
Fenhaus, a Kulwicki Driver Development Program Finalist, has had a dream season. He set the tone with a win in the 2021 Icebreaker at DRP in April. He also scored a massive win in Slinger Nationals which punched his ticket to the national stage to race with the SRX Series. If that wasn’t enough he went on to take the Slinger Speedway title and is contention for the Midwest Tour Championship, as well.
The season has not caught Fenhaus and his team off guard as he said they set the bar high for themselves heading into the season.
“I think it’s very hard to beat my expectations, every race we go to, to win,” Fenhaus said. “It’s hard to cherish the wins we have when we are onto the next race right after the night ends. I’m very thankful for our three wins this year, but not satisfied at all. We have had really fast race cars every race though so I’m really looking forward to Sunday with the TUNDRA series and having a great car count, it should be a very good show, as always.”
One of those wins came in dominating fashion at the Icebreaker. Fenhaus has been strong at the third-mile all season.
“I love Dells Raceway, they have two different corners which makes it hard to get your car to go through both really well. It’s a very racey race track, which I love as well as the tight corners,” Fenhaus said. “You have to get on top of the wheel and that’s what I like about it, it’s a drivers race track.”
The race has some extra meaning for Fenhaus, as well. He won two straight Wegner Memorial races at Slinger, and hopes to do make it three for three on Sunday.
“It would mean a lot, we have been on top of the Carl Wegner Memorials and won a couple of them, so it would mean a lot for our team and our family to be back in victory lane for Carl and Casey,” Fenhaus said. “We have been good there in the past, so hopefully we can find a little more and get another Carl Wegner Memorial race.”
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
