Jeff Crouse, the 2011 Viking Speedway WISSOTA Super Stock track champion, picked up right where he left off last season and captured his first Alexandria Refrigeration-sponsored WISSOTA Super Stock win of the season. Meanwhile, Justin Tammen used a late race pass to grab his first Viking Speedway win of the season in the Extreme Auto-sponsored WISSOTA Street Stocks during AMSOIL Dirt Track Series racing.

Other drivers finding their way to victory lane on a cold, windy Saturday night were Jason Hoffman in the Sower Power-sponsored WISSOTA Midwest Modifieds, Cody Skytland in the Morris Auto Plaza-sponsored WISSOTA Modifieds, and Chris Shirek, who reigned supreme in the NOSA Sprint Car finale.

This weekend promises to be a busy weekend at the high-banked half-mile track located at the Douglas County Fairgrounds as the NLRA Late Models come to town to do battle in the annual Memorial Day doubleheader.

The event should bring in the cream of the crop in WISSOTA Late Model racing, with the action beginning at 5:30 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday night. All other regular WISSOTA classes will be in action as well.
