WANDAHSEGA WINS WHEATLAND ROUND II...

During the World Series of Off-Road Racing opening round of racing on Saturday racers and race fans alike experienced what many of us have experienced during the 2008 racing season. A total dominate performance by Mother Nature herself. The WSORR officials had to cancel Saturday night's racing under the lights due to poor muddy track conditions after a rain shower. They were only able to get in the Super Trucks race and attempted to run the 1600 Light Buggies, which only were able to get one lap in the books before officials decided to cancel Saturday evenings festivities.

As luck would have it, Ben's race was the first scheduled race on Saturday evening. He and his Forest County Potawatomi Toyo Tires Chevy started in the back. When the mud started flying, on his way to the first corner he lost all of his tearoffs. He lost a lap early in the event and never really recovered. The team had to settle for a fourth place finish.

Sunday went much better for Ben Wandahsega and Team Wandahsega as the track was almost perfect. Ben started on the front row and at the start the Toyo Tires MT's hooked up as Ben led every lap and never looked back. Saturday's winner Dan Baudoux finished second but had nothing for the Forest County Potawatomi truck as Ben continued to pull away from Baudoux until the checkers came out.
