Hood Wins Dickinson County Fair 100, Lindsley Clinches Track Championship in Norway Speedway Finale
(Norway, MI) September 7 - After two consecutive weeks of cancelations due to rain, the Norway Speedway was finally able to return to action to cap off it’s 2020 season with an action packed day of racing. Of course, this week wasn’t without a weather postponement from Sunday afternoon to Monday afternoon.
For the last five years, the name of the Norway Speedway Late Model Champion has remained unchanged as Dillon Kralovetz claimed championships 2015-2019. Fittingly, the driver who wrapped up the title this week, Dan Lindsley, was the last driver not named Dillon Kralovetz to win the title. Lindsley won the title in 2014 and adds title number two to his resume with the 2020 Championship which he claimed by simply starting he motor today.
The Dickinson County Fair 100 Late Model feature, run in memory of Bob Iverson, got off to a bumpy start with three cautions in the first 10 laps, a 35 lap run would ensue before the next yellow flew.
Dan Lindsley, who took quick time earlier in the day, showed his speed by taking the lead from Cory Cootware on lap 13, with Robby Iverson following through to second. Ryan Hood would soon grab the second spot from Iverson just short of halfway.
Hood and Lindsley dueled for the lead, with Hood grabbing the spot on lap 56. With just over 20 laps remaining, the two came together exiting turn four, with Hood spinning off the nose of Lindsley. Lindsley would tap out, taking blame for the incident, and fall to the rear of the field while Hood remained in the front, where he stayed through the end of the race to take the win and $1,000 home.
Robby Iverson crossed the line second while Mike D’Angelo followed in third. Cory Cootware and Jason Wells rounded out the top five. Dan Lindsley charged back to sixth in the final 20 laps to recover from his falling to the back.
Jake Dolfurd won a wild Fab Four Frenzy in the Four Cylinder class while Dean Bellmore edged Zach Gazda out in the title battle as those two butted heads in the final laps which ended with Gazda going sideways and Bellmore to the championship.
In the Super Stock Division Ryan Wender survived a caution filled race to take both the feature and the 2020 championship. Wender had spun his car to the outside grass in turn one to avoid a four car pile-up early in the race. The move ultimately won him the race. Like Lindsley the championship was his when he fired up his engine for the feature.
Cody Vanderloop took the Wisconsin Sport Truck Feature race win while Brent Barglind beat both Vanderloop and twin brother, Brad Barglind, to claim that division’s championship with a second place finish in the feature.
In the Ed Hedlund Memorial Feature for the Stock Cars Travis Hulsizer took the checkered flag with Joey Pontbriand in a close second. Preston Weddel, meanwhile, held on to his points lead to take the division’s title.
The Norway Speedway’s 2020 season has officially come to a close, and we look forward to an exciting 2021 season which will be here before we know it! Please check our website norwayspeedway.com and at our page on Facebook for further information or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

LINDSLEY DODGE D’ANGELO – COPS AUTO VALUE FEATURE AT NORWAY SPEEDWAY
(Norway, MI) August 14 – Former track champion Dan Lindsley of Vulcan fought off a late race surge by Mike D’Angelo Jr. on the final circuit to win the Auto Value late model feature at Norway Speedway Friday night.
At the outset of the 50 lap contest it appeared D’Angelo may be the man to beat. The Gwinn racer shot from his pole position into the lead and kept it through a bevy of early caution periods.
Meanwhile Lindsley, who started 10th on the grid, carefully sifted his way through traffic, wrestling the second place spot away from Joey Pontbriand on the 20th circuit. Five laps later Lindsley squeezed inside of D’Angelo for the lead.
A caution flew with seven laps remaining and as the white flag was displayed, D’Angelo mounted a late race charge, pulling his fender alongside Lindsley’s door. That’s how the pair crossed the finish line when the checkers flew. “I’ll tell ya Mike really made me earn that win tonight as I’m beat down tired,” Lindsley exclaimed in victory lane. “I’m an old man now and this stuff tires me out! This new car we’ve got has been on rails here and the pit crew I’ve got is the best!”
D’Angelo took home second place money followed by Neenah, Wisconsin’s Braison Bennett, who scored an impressive third in his super late model debut at the third-mile, paved oval. Green Bay, Wisconsin’s Chad Butz and Kingsford’s Jason Wells placed fourth and fifth, respectively.
Upper Pine Creek’s Ryan Wender led wire-to-wire and sweated out a handful of caution periods to capture the 35 lap super stock main event. Menominee’s John Komp made a return after 13 seasons to collect second place. Parker Cain, Jeremy Yelle and Kevin Peterson rounded out the top five finishers.
Hometown driver and former track champion Joe Ostermann captured the stock car class feature win while Freedom, Wisconsin’s Cody Vanderloop came out on top of a dogfight with Kingsford’s Brad Barglind to win the sport truck feature.
Faithorn’s Elliot Reid took home the Lion’s share of the purse by winning the stock four feature and Bark River’s Mike Richer successfully defending his crown by winning the second annual Pavement Pounder sportmod special.
Next Friday night, August 21 Spectator eliminators will be an added to the show. Racing gets underway at 7 p.m. Please check our website norwayspeedway.com and at our page on Facebook for further information or email email@example.com.
