"One of the nicest guys you will ever meet passed away tonight and the dirt track world wont be the same. Don Roseen spent the majority of his life chasing the dirt track scene as a racer, promoter, President of Wissota, track prep operator and many other things i dont even know! Don had such a love and a passion for the sport we all love and to be honest, he passed away at the track and I dont think he would of wanted it any other way. RIP Don, you will be truly missed, i am truly blessed i got to see you one last time yesterday, regardless of the situation. **DON ROSEEN IS BACK IN VICTORY LANE MY FRIENDS**" Joe Stariha

AMSOIL Speedway Northern Nationals Gets a Face Lift
The 24th Annual Rick Gondik Law Offices Northern Nationals at AMSOIL Speedway in Superior, WI will be the recipient of a face lift this year. The traditional Friday night lineup of IRA 410 Outlaw Sprints, WISSOTA Super Stocks and Midwest Mods, coupled with Saturday nights WISSOTA Late Models, Modifieds and Pure Stocks has been changed.
This year Friday night will consist of the IRA 410 Outlaw Sprints, WISSOTA Modifieds, Super Stocks and Midwest Modifieds. Saturday night’s program will be adding the WISSOTA Late Models and Pure Stocks, while keeping the Modifieds, Super Stocks and Midwest Modifieds for a second show.
AMSOIL Speedway board member Joe Stariha says “This is something we thought about last year, but the timing wasn’t right. We are trying to make the Northern Nationals more of an event than it already is. By having two complete shows for the three classes we will have more drivers and fans staying at the track and in the area over the weekend. This also will help us get WISSOTA national point runners looking for two shows to enhance their national points as the race year is winding down.” Stariha goes on to add, “We will be paying out over $75,000 for the two day event and look forward to showing the fans a great race weekend, including a bunch of giveaways for the kids and a DJ on Friday night after the races.”
Racing will get underway on Friday September 7th with hot laps at 6pm and racing at 6:30 pm. Saturday September 8th hot laps will be at 5:30pm and racing will start at 6pm, with Sunday September 9th being reserved for a rain date. Ticket prices are $25 for Friday night and $20 for Saturday, otherwise you can buy a two day admission for $40. As always at AMSOIL Speedway, children 12 and under are free.
