Viking Speedway: Flaten wins Jerry Kluver Memorial

On a night where Modified legends Dave Storck and Scott Hillig were inducted into the Viking Speedway Hall of Fame, the Alexandria Refrigeration WISSOTA Super Stocks took center stage in a battle for the $1,000 payday as part of the Jerry Kluver Memorial.

When the dust settled, Hancock pilot Jeff Flaten reigned supreme and picked up the large payday, along with the traveling trophy.

Other drivers finding their way to victory lane during WISSOTA AMSOIL Dirt Track series action included: Travis Saurer in the Sower Power WISSOTA Midwest Modifieds, Justin Tammen in the Extreme Auto WISSOTA Street Stocks, Jason Thoennes in the Morris Auto Plaza WISSOTA Modifieds, and Todd Frank in the Marthaler Chevrolet WISSOTA Late Models. The night's festivities were sponsored by Winning Edge Graphics, Pro Fab, and Alex Rubbish all off Alexandria. There was also extra money added to the purse by Beck's Radiator of Alexandria.

This week is a busy one at the half-mile track located at the Douglas County Fairgrounds in Alexandria. The track will hosted two nights of demo derby action Thursday and Friday as part of the Douglas County Fair. On Saturday night, all five WISSOTA divisions will be back in action with the races beginning at 6 p.m.
