By Greg Aregoni
(Luxemburg, WI)- The excitement is mounting in the points battles at Luxemburg Speedway with just 2 weeks remaining. This Friday Night, August 24th A-Can-Again Recycling and Manitowoc Motor Machine will be sponsoring the racing. The action starts at 7 p.m. with the five regular divisions of racing.
All divisions are within 15 points in the battle for the championships. Shawn Kilgore and Tom Brumlic are looking for their first division crowns in the respected divisions. Troy Muench, Brad Lautenbach and Ralph Liegeois are looking to add another trophy to the case.
Last week Shawn Kilgore blew his motor in the early stages of the IMCA Modified feature. Sean Jerovetz finished midpack with James Tebon finishing second. With 2 weeks remaining Kilgore is still the point leader by 1 point over Jerovetz and 2 points over Tebon.
Brandon Czarapata not only has his eyes on an IMCA Stockcar track title; he also has the glimmer of a national championship there also. Czarapata has been on a tear in 2012 and looks to capture his first career Luxemburg track crown. Troy Muench has been a constant at the top of the standings and holds a 7 point advantage. Muench is also the 2010 division champ.
Brad Lautenbach won the tri-fecta of championships last season in the IMCA Northern Sportmods. This year Lautenbach is in the hunt at two tracks. At Luxemburg he looks to defend his crown. Lautenbach’s lead has shrunk as of late with the late season charge of Eric Mahlik. Mahlik has won consecutive features and only sits 1 point back. Brian Bruechert enters the final 2 nights trailing the leader by 9 marks.
In search of his first career IMCA Hobby Stock title; Tom Brumlic has been as consistent as they come. Brumlic has a 15 point advantage (which is the largest at Luxemburg) over Derek Moede. Both are looking for their first track championships.
