ASHLAND — Neil Adamzak of Ashland dragged out his racer for the first time this season and it paid off, as he won the 8th annual Six-Cylinder “Summer Sizzler” at the ABC Raceway on Saturday night.
A season-high 89 cars registered for AMSOIL Dirt Track Series racing action on a warm, windy summer evening, with storm clouds moving around the area but again avoiding the northern Wisconsin red-clay oval.
Other parts of a very busy program included the AMSOIL Race of Champions qualifying features for the three WISSOTA-sanctioned divisions and a 50-bike giveaway that drew a huge number of young fans to the track.
The ABC Raceway will host its annual kids’ bike races this week, presented by Chicago Iron & Supply of Ashland. Adult admission tickets are $10, and fans ages 12 and under are admitted free when accompanied by a paying adult.
Hot laps are set for 6:15 p.m., and racing is set to start at 7 p.m. “Race Night” will air live on WBSZ, 93.3 FM, and stream online at www.wbszfm.com, from 4:30 to 6 p.m. with at-the-track news and weather updates.
