Wausau, WI – State Park Speedway announces a challenge that will make the mouths water of Central Wisconsin super late model drivers. Coined the Auto Select Triple X Challenge, State Park Speedway will shell out $15,000 to any driver that can win Ropa’s Pizza Flip Merwin Memorial, the Newsline Nine Detjens Memorial 125 and the Lodi Memorial. “These races have always stood out as our biggest events of the season and they all pay tribute to special racers,” says Owner Scott Wimmer, “We’ve seen a few other series do something similar and thought it would be so neat if we put something together combining these three events and put a challenge out to the drivers to come and see if someone can win all three.”

In additional to a possible $15,000 pay day for one driver, three drivers will each take home extra cash in an elimination style challenge. Each of these three events will start 24 cars. The top 12 finishers in the first of the three events, the Ropa’s Pizza Flip Merwin Memorial, will be eligible to continue the challenge and receive bonus money. Following the second event, the Newsline Nine Detjens Memorial 125, the top six finishers of those 12 will continue to be eligible going into the final event, the Lodi Memorial Race. At the conclusion of the Lodi Memorial race the top three finishers of those six will receive bonus money of $1,000, $750 and $500 respectively. “We really wanted to do something different and make it so there were a number of drivers eligible for the bonus going into that final race. The chance to win the $15,000 will make it interesting, but this will give a bunch of drivers a chance at the bonus and it will be fun for fans to follow along as drivers get eliminated.”

The first event of the Auto Select Triple X Challenge, the Ropa’s Pizza Flip Merwin Memorial, will be held on Thursday, June 20th, then the Newsline Nine Detjens Memorial 125 takes place on Saturday, July 27th and it all finishes with the Lodi Memorial on Thursday, August 22nd.

All drivers who make the 24 car field for the Ropa’s Pizza Flip Merwin Memorial will be eligible to compete in the Triple X Challenge and the winner of that event will have a shot at a possible $16,000 pay day. For questions regarding the Auto Select Triple X Challenge please email
