CHAMPIONS CROWNED ON TRI COUNTY HEATING CHAMPIONSHIP NIGHT AT LUXEMBURG SPEEDWAY SEPT. 2

(Luxemburg, WI) Aug. 30 – Champions in four classes will be crowned Friday, September 2 at Luxemburg Speedway on Tri County Heating championship night.

In one division the championship has already been decided. Hometown ace Benji LaCrosse already has a whopping 50 point lead over James Lee Tebon of Algoma, thus clinching his fourth career Budweiser IMCA modified title. LaCrosse won titles in 2005-2007 and was the division’s rookie of the year in 2003.

In the Badgerland Concrete IMCA stock cars Pulaski’s Junior Karcz holds a 20 point lead over defending track champion Troy Muench of Union. On Saturday night Karcz captured the stock car crown at 141 Speedway in Francis Creek.

Three points separate New Franken’s Brad Lautenbach over Oconto Falls’ Eric “Chummy” Arneson in the Tri County Heating IMCA northern sportmod class. Last year’s track champion Troy Jerovetz of Green Bay sits 19 points back of Lautenbach. On Sunday night Lautenbach claimed that division’s track title at Seymour Speedway.

Perhaps the toughest battle of all weighs in with the Pepsi IMCA hobby stocks. Denmark’s Tom Brumlic is sandwiched between arch rivals and brothers Marcus and Derek Moede, both Casco natives. Marcus holds a five point lead over Brumlic, while Derek Moede sits eight points out of first place.

Oconto’s Ralph Liegeois Jr. holds a commanding 28 point lead over Oconto Falls’ Brian Johnson in the Tisler Salvage Sport 4’s. On Saturday Liegeois collected that division’s track title at 141 Speedway.
