The sounds of WISSOTA racing finally emanated from the confines of Gondik Law Speedway Friday, May 31, as race officials were finally able to get a racing program in during the month of May, even though it took until the last hours of the last day of the month to get the opening night in.

After the season opener was called off twice, Gondik Law Speedway finally got its season opener in and new winners found their way to victory lane.

Terry Lillo of Duluth got past Kevin Carlson and then held off Darrell Nelson to earn his first Late Model feature win at the speedway.

The Modified feature, meanwhile, was a battle of attrition as only six of the 16 cars that started the 20-lap race finished it as eight caution flags came out. Dan Kingsley survived to capture his first career Modified feature win.

Dave Flynn (Super Stocks), Mack Estey (Midwest Modifieds) and James Vendela (Pure Stocks) were Friday's other feature winners.

On Friday, June 7, the Advantage RV WISSOTA Modified Series will be at GLS as part of a four-day, four-track tour.
