Northern Nationals hit the track tonightTwo-day event at AMSOIL Speedway begins tonight with IRA 410 Outlaw Sprints
The 25th Annual Rick Gondik Law Offices Northern Nationals are today and Saturday at Superior’s AMSOIL Speedway.
Tonight’s action 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.
“This is something we put into place last year, and it was a huge success,” said AMSOIL Speedway board member Joe Stariha. “We continue to make the Northern Nationals more of an event than it already is. By having two complete shows for the three classes we have more drivers and fans staying at the track and in the area over the weekend. This also helps us get WISSOTA national point runners looking for two shows to enhance their national points as the race year is winding down.”
The Speedway will pay out more than $75,000 for the two-day event. Besides racing, the weekend will include giveaways for the kids, which will include actual signed driver door panels that the drivers have donated.
Bill Balog will attempt to win his fourth straight Northern National Outlaw Sprint title this weekend. Balog, Mike Kertscher, who finished second in his last two appearances, and others will be racing for the first-place prize is $2,500. Also up for grabs is the $300 for starting in the main event.
