PROCTOR -- The 2018 special event season kicked off Thursday night at the Proctor Speedway with the "granddaddy of ‘em all, the 46th edition of the Silver 1000.

A packed house got what they expected -- hot racing on a smooth, fast track, a back-to-back winner in the WISSOTA Modifieds, a brand new winner in the WISSOTA Late Models and the whole thing spiced up with a dollop of controversy to top off the evening of racing.

Making the event even better, the Late Model portion of the Silver 1000 was also a stop on the Wollak Construction WISSOTA Late Model Challenge Series schedule.

A total of 31 WISSOTA Late Models were on hand to challenge the tricky three eights mile banked clay oval. Joining the Late Models were an even 40 of the high powered open wheel WISSOTA Modifieds.
