NELSON AND ADAMS SNARE SILVER 1000 WINS

Proctor, Minn.

The 41st annual Silver 1000 at the Proctor Speedway is a long running special event which
started out as a Late Model Special back in 1973 and the Modifieds were added in 2000. This 41st
version had three races instead of two as the biggest race was against Mom Nature as officials
hustled to get the event in the books. The “Grand Daddy Of ‘Em All” drew 29 Modifieds and 30
Late Models as heavy rains and severe thunderstorm warnings plagued the area….except for the
City of Proctor and the Proctor Speedway. Though ominous clouds and a few sprinkles loomed,
the race went on and it was a good one. Weather concerns no doubt kept a number of traveling

crowd did show to see the two division program. Read the rest of this entry »

rarely race the Sunday prior to Thursday’s Silver 1000 which, this year, is the 41st edition.
Officials in cooperation with United Midwest Sprint Series scheduled the UMSS rained out event
for that open date. Also racing Sunday for no track or national points were the Super Stocks,
Midwest Modified and Pure Stock division. Track championships had been wrapped up the
previous Sunday. Consequently, the three divisions were sparsely populated. UMSS brought two
divisions, their “Traditional” non winged sprints and the Winged Sprints. A total of 21 sprints
were in attendance on a sweltering late August afternoon where the thermometer flirted with the
90 degree mark. Read the rest of this entry »
