AMSOIL Speedway is pleased to announce that Darrell Nelson will be making an appearance July 18th for Meet A Driver. This will also be the AMSOIL Qualifier night at the track.
Darrell has been a staple at AMSOIL Speedway along with Proctor Speedway for over 27 years. Darrell races in both the Modified and the Late Model Divisions. The Hermantown Hammer has collected many prestigious titles over the years in his familiar 44 including winning the AMSOIL Late Model Series twice, Como Modified Series, The Red Clay Classic in Modified, the legendary 100 twice in a row, and the only driver to win in both the Modified and Late Model on the same year at the Silver 1000! Darrell will hopefully have both of his cars up front for you Fans to see up close and talk with. So come on out to AMSOIL Speedway July 18th and talk with Darrell, kids can always sit in the car and have a picture taken. Look forward to seeing everyone then.

The schizophrenic nature of the weather Friday night at AMSOIL
Speedway kept everyone on their toes. A gloomy humid day turned into a
bright sunny day, still humid, followed by a veritable monsoon that put paid
to the racing program for the evening.
A nice total of 94 race cars were on hand for the first time in three weeks
including 18 cars in the Late Models, Modifieds and Super Stocks only
outdone by the Midwest Modfiieds and Pure Stocks which produced 20 each.
On a very tacky fast track due to the copious amount of rain that had
fallen over night heat races began with the Midwest Modifieds in three heats.
Skeeter Estey showed he hadn't forgotten the wa around the speedway as he
took advantage of a slip in turn two by leader Cody Carlson to take the lead
and the win. Jake Gondik fresh off a pair of feature wins at Proctor recently,
his first wins in the division, took the second heat by a good distance over
Deven VanHouse. Brady Caul from F. Francis, Ontario was the third heat
winner over Mack Estey.
