Marshfield, WI, (May 29, 2021) – It was a special day today, as fans, drivers, and race teams saluted all the troops that served, and those that gave the ultimate sacrifice.  We, at Marshfield Motor Speedway, thank you, on this Memorial Day Weekend!

With six divisions of racing competing here today, fans were treated to, what ended up being, the best day of the week!  Super Late Models hit the track for their 35-lap feature event, and it was Jason Wells jumping out to the early lead.  The Northeast Wisconsin driver held the lead for the first seven laps.  On lap eight, it was Wisconsin Rapids, WI driver Mark Eswein grabbing the lead with an outside pass exiting turn two.  Eswein, who earlier in the day earned fast time honors, has been fast wherever he competes.  With Eswein out front and Wells holding a solid second place, AJ Kreager worked her way up to the third position.  Kreager, who earlier in the day visited the McDonald’s Drive Thru Victory Lane with a fast heat win, just got her #86 machine back together after a bad wreck at State Park Speedway.  On lap 18, Darren Jackson raced his way into the third position, with a pass of Kreager.  Four laps later, Jackson moved into the runner up spot, and started to set his sites on a very fast #71 hot rod.  With Eswein holding a comfortable lead, and Jackson comfortably in second, it was AJ Kreager working her way around Jason Wells, with five remaining in the main event.  The best race on the track was for the fourth and fifth position.  Jason Wells had it, but Dillon Mackesy wanted it.  The two driver leaned on each other on occasions, but it was Wells holding off Mackesy by six inches, as the drivers received the checkered flag.  With Mark Eswein earning the top spot, and Darren Jackson the runner up position, AJ Kreager grabbed the final podium spot, with her solid third place performance.   Tonight’s Dash 4 Cash event, a four lap dash for the fastest four cars, was won by Dillon Mackesy.  Dakota Blakeslee, in his first night out on the 2021 season, grabbed the heat win.

X-Treme 4’s competed in their first points night of the year, and it was Chad Ferge grabbing fast time honors with a lap time of 22.139 seconds.  Ferge, whom of which hales from the Wausau area, also grabbed the heat win tonight.  In feature action, it was Don Tieman jumping out to the early lead.  Tieman, who competes in the Bill Herr #2 Ford, was very fast in his practice session.  Four laps into the 15-lap feature event, it was Chad Ferge charging to the lead in his familiar #43 4-cylinder mod.  With Ryan Brock dropping out of the feature event, as he was running second, Ferge cruised to the feature win. With Don Tieman and Payton Olson finishing second and third respectively, Ron Sischo grabbed the fourth spot, with Ryan Brock in fifth.                             

Branden Sischo, in his new ride for the 2021 season, turned the fastest lap in qualifying for the Bandits.  Heat winners tonight for the Bandits was Tom Lecher and Eric Breitenfeldt.  Tom Lecher jumped out to the lead in the feature event from his outside pole position.  Lecher was quickly battled by Chris Tolliver.  Eric Breitenfeldt grabbed the third position away from last week’s feature winner, Hunter Landwehr, on lap four.  Breitenfeldt had a very fast car, particularly in the corners.  Breitenfeldt made numerous attempts on the inside of Tolliver, and finally made it stick on lap nine.  With three laps remaining, Breitenfeldt closed the gap in Lecher, but tonight, it was Tom Lecher putting his #12 stock 4-cylinder into victory lane.  With Breitenfeldt in the runner up spot, it was Hunter Landwehr finishing third.

As the 6-Shooters competed tonight, Brandon Van Stedum earned the clean sweep.  John Wendt closed on Van Stedum in the heat, but ran out of laps in hopes of getting the win.  In feature action, it was Pat Literski finishing up in the runner up position, as Brandon Van Stedum cruised to the feature win.  John Wendt finished third, with Amanda Cnare coming home in the fourth position.

The always exciting 2-Man Cruisers once again visited the half-mile paved oval of Marshfield Motor Speedway, and it was the team of John Van Stedum and Craig Lyon fastest in qualifying.  Lyon & Van Stedum also notched the heat win tonight.  In feature action, Lyon/Van Stedum “Motored” to the early lead, and never looked back.  The 2-person team of Van Stedum and Lyon cruised to the clean sweep tonight.
