Red Cedar Speedway: Menomonie’s March, Elk Mound’s Anderson among the Season Points Champions | Sports
Once again, in a dominant fashion, Jesse Redetzke of Eau Claire won the 2021 Track Championship in the WISSOTA Super Stocks. Rick Hallquist, Bart Steffen, Andrew Davis and Dylan Leu round out the top five. On Friday night, Redetzke and Bart Stephen hoisted the checkered flag after their heats. By the time of the final, Brandon Clemens looked solid from pole position as he took the lead and put distance on the next five cars that battled in close formation, including three and four wide for second place . Sixth starter, Tom Karis broke away from the peloton and began to overthrow the leader. Just as Karis showed up on the front stretch and Clemmons got up on the steering wheel to push him away, Clemens unfortunately broke and ended up in the backfield.
Karis was solid up front, but he had brought seventh and eighth starters Dan Nissalke and Jesse Redetzke through the field with him. Nissalke was able to overtake Karis for the lead but the top three remained in close formation. On the last lap a lap car piled the leaders up and created a tense situation, but they sailed well and finished one, two, three. Andrew Davis had a good run in fourth and Bart Stephen finished fifth.
The WISSOTA Midwest Modifieds season points were won by Kennedy Swan of Chippewa Falls by tight twelve points over JD Ford. The championship was not decided until the arrival of the feature film tonight. The rest of the top five included Kyle Kirberger. Jay Richardson and Travis Anderson. All three rounds were won by Shadow Kitchner, JD Ford and Jesse Bryan. In the feature, Brandon Mehrwerth went from pole position to lead early, and it was an advantage he never gave up until the checkered flag. Initially, Cody Borgeson was second, but the fifth start, Jesse Bryan, rushed to his bumper and used a low pass to take the position. After starting seventh on the field, Kennedy Swan worked his way through the field in third and started working on Bryan for second. Ninth starter, JD Ford was on a mission to try and win a race and a track championship as he hammered the cushion high and was the fastest car on the track yet. A quick warning slowed the pace and reset the field and Mehrwerth would take the field back to green with Bryan and Swan in second and Ford and starting tenth Ashley Mehrwerth one row behind them.
