Marshfield, WI, (August 14, 2021) – On a day when the fans and race teams remembered Jim Langreck, they were also treated with perfect weather conditions.  Langreck, Builder/Founder of Marshfield Motor Speedway back in the 1970’s, succumbed to cancer this past spring.

Visiting the speedway today was the Upper Midwest Vintage Racing Series, and what a show the 17 drivers from three states put on!  Heat winners today for the UMVRS were, Sean Herzog from Wausau, Brian Lee of Holmen, and Jim Kulseth from Rosemount, Minnesota.  

Once the beautiful vintage cars took to the track, it was Robert Fitzpatrick leading the drivers to the green flag.  Fitzpatrick would lead lap one, but was quickly passed by outside second row starter, Brian Lee.  Lee, whom of which won a heat race earlier in the day, seemed to know his way around the 1/2 mile paved oval.  Moving to the runner up position early in the contest, was Jim Kulseth with Roger Peterson a close third.  Making a charge to the fourth spot by mid race, was Dan Linnehan of Leon, Wisconsin.  After a few late race cautions, Brian Lee would cruise on to the feature win.  Finishing a close second was Jim Kulseth, with Dan Linnehan rounding out tonight’s podium finishers. Ken Hutchins & Sean Herzog rounded out the top 5 respectively.

The UMVRS would like to thank O’Reilly Auto Parts, Red Door Saloon, and the Chris Langreck for helping sponsor this event. Series Oraganizer Ken Hutchins stated, “We always enjoy traveling to Marshfield, it’s a great facility to compete on, and the staff is very friendly.”

Super Late Models competed here tonight, and it was Darren Jackson edging AJ Kreager in qualifying by .009 of a second! Heat winners tonight were Cody Blakeslee and Darek Gress. Dillon Mackesy notched the Chili Implement Dash 4 Cash.

Leading the way in the Super Late Model feature was Cody Blakeslee and Jerad deBoer. Blakeslee and deBoer would battle side by side for the first seven laps, then on lap 8, deBoer stuck the nose of his Ford underneath Blakeslee, and made the pass for the top spot. deBoer, whom of which has made huge strides early on in his slm career, would lead the next 12 laps. On lap 20, Action Racing’s Darek Gress cleared the machine of deBoer for the top spot. Gress pulled out to a 7-car length lead, with Dillon Mackesy and Darren Jackson, now running 2nd and 3rd. As Mackesy and Jackson closed slightly on the leader, Mackesy got very loose in turn one, allowing Jackson to take over the second spot. Once Jackson cleared Mackesy, it was noticeable that the #2 car was closing a little every lap, on the 107.5 car of Gress. With Mackesy holding tight on the third positon, Jackson caught Gress with 5 laps remaining. The two drivers would race side by side for the next four laps, and once the drivers took the white flag, it was Jackson finally clearing Gress for the top spot. With Darren Jackson and Darek Gress finishing first and second, it was Dillon Mackesy grabbing the third spot. Jerad deBoer and AJ Kreager rounded out the top five.

Leading the way in the point standings for the X-Treme 4’s, is Chad Ferge. Ferge would build on that lead tonight as he captured fast time and won his heat race.

Kenny Meyer jumped out to the early lead of the X-Treme 4’s feature event. Mike Jeager would move into second place with the pass of Don Tieman. With Meyer and Jeager running side by side for the race lead, the two drivers made contact with each other, bringing out the caution. On the restart, it was Chad Ferge inheriting the lead. Jeager would retire his car for the evening, but Meyer was able to continue from the rear of the field. With Ferge holding a comfortable lead, Tieman made one last charge on the Ferge machine, but to no avail. Once the drivers took the checkered flag, it was Chad Ferge parking his car in the McDonald’s Drive Thru Victory Lane. With Tieman holding down the second spot, Kenny Meyer battled his way back to the third position.

The Bandits competed again tonight and it was Eric Brietenfeldt earning fast time honors, Brietenfeldt turned a lap time 22.884 seconds. Breitenfeldt also went on to win the heat race, edging out point leader Hunter Landwehr.

Amanda Rowe and Max Manowski paced the field to the green flag for the Bandit feature. Manowski would grab the lead on lap one, with Hunter Landwehr taking over the second position. One lap later, it was Landwehr taking over the top spot. Landwehr’s lead was brief however, as Eric Brietenfeldt made the inside pass for the race lead. Landwehr would stay with Breitenfeldt, but not close enough to retake the lead. Breitenfeldt would go on to capture the Bandit feature win, putting himself one point behind Landwehr for the track championship.
