GONDIK AND HIETALA WIN SECOND STRAIGHT FEATURES ON OPEN WHEEL NIGHT

By Jerry O’Brien 7-6-14 Proctor, MN

It was Open Wheel night at the Proctor Speedway Sunday night featuring

Upper Midwest Sprint Series (UMSS)Traditional and Winged Sprint Cars

along with WISSOTA Modifieds and Midwest Modifieds. A large crowd of

fans crowded into the speedway grandstands for the event on a hot July night.

After all of the qualifying heat races were complete and the track was

groomed, it was time to go racing. The UMSS features were sandwiched in

between the Midwest Modified and Modified features so the first event up

was 20 laps for the Midwest Modifieds. Read the rest of this entry »

HIETALA WINS FIRST WISSOTA MODIFIED FEATURE AT PROCTOR

By Jerry O’Brien 6-29-14

For the first time this racing season at the Proctor Speedway the

temperature matched the sunny and windy skies. The track crew did a

yeoman job reclaiming the track surface f rom the torrential rains that had

fallen during the night.

Cory Jorgenson of Hermantown was looking to nail down a Late Model

feature win in the 25 lap WISSOTA Late Model feature but first time visitor

Brent Larson of Lake Elmo, MN had other ideas. Larson mentioned that he

and his crew have been driving all over the area “chasing rain storms”

looking for someplace to race. The search took him to the Proctor Speedway

Sunday evening and paid off for him. Jorgenson led early on from the pole

and was hounded for several laps by Zach Wohlers, Larson, Kevin Carlson

and Terry Lillo. A couple of caution flags aided Larson who was in second

by the ten lap mark and pressuring Jorgenson enough that he spun around at

the top of turn one. The call went against Jorgenson leaving Larson sitting in

front ahead of Wohlers, Carlson, Harry Hanson and Tim McMann. The top

five would finish in that order except for Hanson who encountered trouble

and slipped back giving over fifth place to Kyle Peterlin. Larson turned the

fastest lap with a scorcher at 16.903 seconds for an average speed of 79.9

mph. Read the rest of this entry »

VANG, NELSON, VANHOUSE, MCFADDEN RULE PROCTOR WISSOTA DIVISIONS

By Jerry O’Brien
6-8-14
Proctor, MN

It was night number three for the Proctor Speedway as the 2014 season

has finally gotten under way as we head for the first day of summer. A total

of 73 cars were in action. Preliminary qualifying heats set the feature lineups.

There were three heats in the Midwest Modified division with Mack Estey,

Mark Kangas and Deven VanHouse posting wins. Single heats for the Super

Stocks and Late Models were won by Scott Lawrence and Tim McMann

respectively while Dustin Follett and Austin Blom took the Pure Stock heats.

With heat action complete and after the Kid’s Bike Races the Midwest

Modified 20 lap feature moved into starting position. The first attempt at a

start did not go well as John Kallas and Andy Inman tangled in the first turn

causing several cars to pile up behind them. The crash eliminated Justin

Madsen and Mack Estey. Kallas was tagged with the incident. The second try

at a start went better and Mark Kangas rolled into the lead. Cody Carlson,

Deven VanHouse, Inman and Danny Vang followed. Vang vaulted to third

and the top four pulled out a lead on Dan Kingsley who had moved into the

top five. Vang, who runs very well at Proctor was on the charge and soon ran

second. He closed on Kangas and moved past to the point at the half way

mark. Vang was the leader over Kangas, VanHouse, Carlson and Kingsley in

the top five. Bill Matzdorf, Jake Gondik, Inman, Kallas and Tyler Luger ran

in the top ten. Vang was in control and drove off into the distance as

VanHouse took second from Kangas. A pitched battle took place behind the

leaders and Gondik won that one holding off Matzdorf for sixth. Kallas,

Inman and Chris Bretting rounded out the top ten. Read the rest of this entry »
