Thank You to Okler Custom Metal Roofing for becoming the Auto Value Super Stock weekly "Fast Qualifier" award, Wilson Auto Collision from Niagara is now the new title sponsor for the Wisconsin Sport Trucks, and Solbergs Greenleaf Sports Bar for being the bi-weekly "Fast Qualifier" award of the sport trucks! We appreciate all three businesses teamed up with the Norway Speedway.
S.E.A.L. which stands for Sealed Engine Alliance Leaders, S.E.A.L. was an organization set up in 2008 to oversee the sale and distribution of the approved seals, manage the database built with the information from the sealing process, and assist in providing information for technical inspectors nationally. Currently, most organizations involved in this type of racing are using engine packages commonly referred to as the GM 604, the Ford Blue Oval, and the McGunegill MEP 425. The initial group to oversee this program for S.E.A.L. includes R. J. Scott (founder and co-owner of CRA), Eddie Chew (Chief Technical Inspector for CRA), Ricky Brooks (Chief Technical Inspector for the Snowball Derby, SpeedWeeks and numerous other national events), Tim Bryant (Promoter and Co-owner of 5 Flags Speedway and the Snowball Derby), and Mike “Lumpy” Lemke (Chief Technical Inspector of ARCA Midwest Tour). Lemke’s role in the group will be to serve as the independent.
