Bryan Reffner plans on competing in selected ASA Late Model races this season.

Plans are for the Reffner Motorsports team to open their season at the Madison International speedway on May 27 and competing at Cedar Rapids along with possible runs at Rockford and LaCrosse.

Reffner says" I can't wait to come back to Madison Speedway where I won several races and is kind of my home track. The series looks to be a very competitive one and we expect to run up front at all the races".

Reffner, son of Midwest star Tom Reffner, began racing at age 16. Gaining early experience by working hands-on with the race cars. He quickly progressed up the regional ladder and was named ARTGO rookie-of-the-year in 1983. Reffner won a total of three track championships in 1989 and 1990.

In 1995 Reffner won the American Speed Association (ASA) championship in only his second year of competition in the series. Until then, Mark Martin was the only driver to achieve this. A move to the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series came in 1996 with rookie-of-the-year honors. Spent several seasons in NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series, winning one event and scoring five pole awards. A return to ASA in 2003 resulted in four top fives and ten top 10s enroute to sixth in the season-ending point standings.
