Aaron Lillo and Johnny Broking each led their respective features flag-to-flag and earned invitations to compete in the Afco Shocks Race of Champions during the WISSOTA 100 weekend as a result of their wins at the Gondik Law Speedway on Friday night.
Also winning Race of Champions berths were Dave Mass and Skeeter Estey, while Jeremy Cash captured his first career feature win at the big Superior oval.
Despite a small car count (70), the action was fast and -- in the case of three of the features and most of the heats -- non-stop on the next-to-last night of the 2018 season under cool, cloudy conditions.
The final night of the regular season will be Friday, Aug. 24, with trike races involving several of the drivers added as part of the intermission entertainment.
All five regular weekly divisions will be in action, and the 2018 track champions will be crowned. Hot laps are at 6:30 p.m., and the first heat race of the night takes the green flag at 7 p.m.
The 30th annual Northern Nationals are set for Sept. 6-8.
