For only the second time this season racing was held at the newly named Gondik Law Speedway (formerly AMSOIL Speedway) Friday night.

Horrible weather in the month of May caused all but one scheduled event to be cancelled and as it worked out, the next event to be held at the speedway was a visit from the Advantage RV’s Modified Touring Series, which is based in Watertown, S.D.

Shane Sabraski was the first to take the green flag and the checkered flag as he held off hard-charging Darrell Nelson at the finish to capture the Advantage RV Modified Touring Series’ 40-lap feature.

The series is in the midst of a northern swing, which included four of the “Northern Tier” of WISSOTA tracks.

The visit Friday to Gondik Law Speedway was hard on the heels of the visit to the Grand Rapids Speedway on Thursday night.

In other events, Jamie Davis beat out a field of 33 racers to win the Midwest Modifieds 20-lap feature and Kyle Copp took home the Pure Stocks feature win.

ABC Raceway

Nick Gima

He doesn’t get to the ABC Raceway often, but Dan Ebert of Lake Shore, Minn., might get to liking the long haul to the Northwoods of Wisconsin.

In only his second visit to the Ashland track, Ebert swiped the lead from Jody Bellefeuille roughly a third of the way through the 40-lap WISSOTA Modified A-feature and disappeared to a dominant win during Saturday’s Advantage RV Mod Tour visit.

The five-division race program saw 94 entries file into the pit area, including 25 of the “big Mods” participating in the Tour’s second-ever stop at ABC. Cool temperatures kept the red-clay surface tacky and created plenty of horsepower, making for some lightning-fast lap times all night long.

Eighteen WISSOTA Modifieds were on hand for the northern swing finale along with 20 Midwest Modifieds, another dozen Pure Stocks and 18 Hornets.

It was another cool night in the northland with a brisk breeze coming straight off Lake Superior, but a hardy crowd of race fans were on hand to watch some of the best Modified racers in WISSOTA go for the $1,500 top prize and points counting for the Tour point fund.
