Wausau, WI - This Thursday marks the 4th Annual Fighting Cancer Full Throttle 75 at State Park Speedway and also championship night, where the 2013 season point champions will be crowned.
In the C-Tech Super Late Model division Mark Mackesy has all but wrapped up his second championship in three years. He holds a 57 point lead over second place Jeremy Lepak. If Mackeys starts the feature on Thursday, he will clinch the 2013 championship.
The battle for spots three through seven, however, could prove to be exciting. Lepak has the second spot wrapped up, but the following five positions are separated by a mere 23 points, with third and fourth being separated just one point.
The Budweiser/Fabiano Brothers Limited Late Model champion still has yet to be decided. Wayne Mackesy holds just a 13 point lead over Clint Sillars. Sillars picked up his first win of the 2013 season last week to close the gap. With Jeff Spatz 189 points back from the lead, it will all come down to Mackesy and Sillars Thursday night.
In the Marathon Parts City Pure Stock division Travis Volm looks to repeat as champion as he holds a 39 point lead over Karl Genett. While Genett could close that gap in one night, it will be very difficult. Tim Nawrocky sits in third place 59 points out of the lead, but just 20 points behind Genett.
Brad Conant in the Snap-On Mini-Mod division is the only driver to have his championship locked up before even hitting the track on Thursday. Phil Malouf, who sits second, will not be able to make up the 77 point different in one night. This marks Conants first ever championship at State Park Speedway.
Mariah Gajewski looks to win her second straight Motors Service and Supply Mini-Stock championship Thursday night. She holds a 48 point lead over George Seliger heading in to Thursday night’s race.
While all eyes will be on the championship battles Thursday, State Park Speedway will also use the 4th Annual Fighting Cancer Full Throttle 75 to raise money for breast cancer awareness. There will be t-shirts for sale as well as raffle prizes with proceeds going to a local breast cancer foundation.
With pink the theme of the night, State Park Speedway hosts its first ever powder puff event. Ladies will take to the track in four cylinder cars, mini-mods or mini-stocks, and battle to win the first ever powder puff title. It will make for a fun event as many driver’s wives and girlfriends get behind the wheel for the first time ever.
Fan gates open at 4:30, Fred Mueller qualifying is at 6:30 and racing begins at 7:30.
