JEFFERSON, WI (Saturday, April 27, 2013) Stoughton’s Casey Johnson opened the defense of his 2012 Jefferson Speedway Late Model crown in style after capturing the Ice Breaker 50 lap feature. The two time champ in Jefferson’s premier division kicked off the season by motoring to the front of the field and holding off a couple of hard chargers to grab the victory.

Ryan Zielski and Bruce Lee paced the pack as the green flag flew to get things underway. Zielski took the early lead on lap one as Dale Nottestad slid up to second past Lee. Lee continued to drop back after Dylan Schuyler and Johnson made their way into the top four. The first of four cautions waved on lap six when Chad Stevens got turned around. As racing resumed, Johnson slipped under Schuyler looking for third while Nottestad began to work over Zielski on the point. Nottestad pulled even with the leader on lap 13 as Johnson claimed the third position and pulled up behind the duo at the front. The second caution on lap 15 reset the field with Zielski out front and Nottestad lurking in second. Johnson made a move to the low side of Nottestad as the green flew again. The leaders bunched up in turn four allowing Johnson to get by Nottestad for second and draw even with Zielski for the lead. Johnson pulled alongside Zielski through turns one and two on lap 23. Johnson completed the pass for the lead exiting turn four on the same lap with Nottestad looking to follow into second. Johnson began to open up a large advantage while Nottestad and Zielski battled side by side. Nottestad grabbed control of second on lap 33 as Dan Jung moved up to challenge Zielski next. But contact between the two on lap 36 resulted in Zielski spinning to bring out caution number three and erase Johnson’s big lead. After the fourth and final caution two laps later, Nottestad set up to make his move on Johnson with Zack Riddle watching from third. Johnson maintained his advantage as the laps began to wind down with Riddle working on Nottestad for second. Riddle made the pass for the runner up position with eight laps remaining, but Johnson was in control on his way to the win. Riddle finished second with Nottestad, Schuyler and Shaun Scheel rounding out the top five.

JEFFERSON, WI (Saturday, September 15, 2012) If there was a trophy waiting in victory lane following a Big 8 Series Late Model race during the two day Wisconsin State Championships at Jefferson Speedway, the safe bet was that Dale Nottestad would be taking it home. The Cambridge pilot claimed four trophies during the program including the one naming him the 2012 overall champion of the 32nd annual event. That was just part of the great racing action over the past weekend at the speedway which also included the return of the Mid American Stock Car Series for the first time since 1995.

The first of twin 75 lap Late Model features started and ended with Nottestad at the front of the field. Along with Shaun Scheel, Nottestad brought the 24 car field to green to begin the action. Scheel held the advantage on lap one with Nottestad still flanking his inside. Nottestad drew back to even on lap three as they raced wheel to wheel for the top spot. On lap eight, Nottestad surged into the lead, clearing completely a lap later as Scheel fell back to second and 2012 track champion Casey Johnson running in third. The top three began to separate themselves from the rest of the pack as Chris Quam moved into fourth. The leaders began to spread apart from one another as they raced through heavy lapped traffic. The caution free racing ended on lap 51 for debris, closing the leaders back together for the final 24 circuits. The top five remained the same through the next 17 laps when Kyle Jarlsberg and Steve Dobbratz slid through turn three and into the outside wall collecting Alex Papini, Jesse Bernhagen and Ryan Carlson in the process. After racing resumed, Nottestad continued to show the way as the leaders ran nose to tail through on more caution until the checkers flew. At the stripe to complete the first 75 lapper, it was Nottestad with the win followed by Scheel, Johnson, Quam and Kyle Shear.

JEFFERSON, WI (Saturday, September 8, 2012) Rookie Late Model pilot Stephen Scheel of Lake Mills waited until the final points race of the 2012 season to pick up his first career feature win in the division. While Scheel won the battle, Stoughton's Casey Johnson won the war. Johnson survived mechanical difficulties at the start of the Havill Spoerl 65 lap main event to capture his second Late Model crown at Wisconsin's Action Track.

Scheel and Roger Behlke brought the field to the drop of the green flag. Before the completion of lap one, Johnson spun in turn four to force the only caution of the event. Johnson pulled into the pit area and retired for the evening as the field prepared to go green once again. Scheel grabbed control as racing resumed with Chris Quam pulling up under Behlke in a battle for second. Quam moved into second on lap two with Brady Liddle in tow for the third spot. A few laps later, Liddle got by Quam for second as Scheel was already enjoying a large lead. Liddle began to reel in the leader as the top three pulled away from the rest of the pack. By lap 25, Liddle was right behind Scheel as he applied pressure from the second position. Liddle remained on Scheel's rear bumper lap after lap as the pair of drivers continued to stretch their lead. The duo raced through heavy lapped traffic with Scheel showing the way the entire time. Liddle made one last attempt on the final lap, looking to the inside of Scheel entering turn three, but Scheel held off his advances to take the checkered flag first for the win. Liddle was second with Shaun Scheel, Dale Nottestad and Kyle Jarlsberg rounding out the top five.

JEFFERSON, WI (Saturday, September 01, 2012) Johnson Creek's Jerry Eckhardt grabbed control just past the halfway point of the 50 lap Late Model main event and held on to get the victory. The win marked Eckhardt's second feature win of the 2012 campaign with only one more week left in the regular season.

Chris Quam and Stephen Scheel paced the field to green with Quam taking control of the point on lap one and Eckhardt charging up alongside Scheel for second. After battling for a few laps, Eckhardt slid into sole possession of the second spot on lap six while Quam continued to show the way. The field slowed on lap nine for the first of four cautions when Dylan Schuyler spun on the front stretch. As racing resumed, Eckhardt launched his bid for the lead as he began to challenge Quam on the low side. Eckhardt drew even on lap 16 as the pair of drivers began a battle that lasted several circuits. Quam and Eckhardt fought wheel to wheel, with each driver taking a turn sticking his nose out front. On lap 28, Eckhardt shot out of a cannon as he exited turn two as he rocketed into the lead. Two cautions on laps 29 and 33 changed nothing in the top five with Eckhardt out front and Quam in his mirror. On lap 35, Ty James drove to the high side of Bruce Lee to claim third and pull up behind Quam. A final caution on lap 45 set up a five lap shootout to the finish. On the restart, James used the outside groove to get by Quam for second while Eckhardt drove out to a commanding lead. At the checkers, it was Eckhardt for the win followed by James, Quam, Lee and Casey Johnson.

Jefferson’s Jason Thoma got the front of the field early in the 30 lap Sportsman feature and hung on to pick up the win. Mike Heelein and Jeff Schultz made up the front row for the start as they battled side by side to open up the action. On lap two, Schultz moved into the lead as Heelein back into a three wide fight for second between Thoma and Will Rece. Thoma emerged with the position a lap later with Rece taking over the third spot. On lap three, Thoma dove under Schultz looking to lead. After a brief battle, Thoma took over the top spot on lap five with Rece in tow for second and Mark Deporter following into third. Thoma began to move out to a comfortable lead until a caution on lap 14 erased his advantage. As racing resumed, Rece began to apply pressure to the leader, looking to the low side of Thoma. Rece continued to harass Thoma lap after lap, but Thoma stayed strong on the point all the way to the checkered flag for the win. Rece settled for second followed by Deporter, Seth Lootans and Schultz.

JEFFERSON, WI (Saturday, August 25, 2012) After taking several weeks off, Steve Dobbratz of Rio made his triumphant return to Wisconsin's Action Track as he claimed the Papa Murphy's Pizza 50 lap Late Model main event. Meanwhile, the points battle tightened up between leader Casey Johnson and his closest rival in the standings, Jason Erickson.

Noel Ramge and Craig Phillips paced the field to green with Ramge taking the initial lead out of turn two with Shaun Scheel following into second. Dobbratz sliced into third before completing the opening circuit. Scheel quickly made a move to the inside of Ramge while Dobbratz and Doug Hahn watched from behind. The see saw battle between Ramge and Scheel continued lap after lap until the caution waved on lap 13. Scheel was scored as the leader with Ramge right behind in second and Dobbratz riding in third. The leaders ran single file through one more caution on lap 15. On the restart, Dobbratz got a good run on the low side of Ramge for second, clearing on lap 16 with Hahn in tow for third. Dobbratz pulled up behind Scheel on lap 19, diving to the inside of the leader a lap later. Dobbratz cleared for the top spot as they exited turn four to complete lap 20. Scheel tried to fight back entering turn one, but Dobbratz maintained control of the lead with Hahn watching from third. Dobbratz continued to show the way while Dale Nottestad entered the top five. Nottestad picked his way up behind Scheel in second by lap 36, while Casey Johnson and Jason Erickson battled for position in the top five. Nottestad got past Scheel for second with nine laps remaining as the leaders tip toed through some lapped traffic.
