Border Battle Heats Up As ASA Midwest Tour Heads To WI Dells

DAYTONA BEACH, FL (June 8, 2007) -- After three events, the racing has proved intense on the American Speed Association Kwik Trip Midwest Tour presented by Echo Outdoor Power Equipment. The "border battle" between the states represented has been just as hot. Wisconsin drivers have 14 top-ten finishes, while Minnesota drivers trail by only one with 13 top-tens. Michigan drivers sit back with only two, while Illinois has only one top ten finish to its credit.

Wisconsin lead's in ASA Midwest Tour wins as Nathan Haseleu and Steve Carlson have taken victories in two of the three events. Minnesota follows with a single win by Jonathan Eilen in the inaugural race, held in the Gopher State.

Kenny Richards from Wisconsin is the ASA Midwest Tour point leader going into the fourth event. His home track, Wisconsin's Dells Raceway Park will be host to six NASCAR stars at the ASA Midwest Tour event Tuesday June 12. Johnny Sauter, Scott Wimmer, Erik Darnell, Travis Kvapil, Tim Sauter, and Chris Wimmer will be taking on the locals and Kwik Trip Touring Stars on the third-mile oval in the Back Home 100. General admission will be $24 for adults, $15 for students and seniors, and children under 10 are free with a paid adult admission.

Minnesota's Donny Reuvers and Wisconsin's Nathan Haseleu are tied for second in Championship standings. Minnesota drivers Josh Vadnais and Jonathan Eilen round out the top five in points, solidifying the "border battle" in the chase for the first ASA Midwest Tour crown.

Several more opportunities lie ahead with five upcoming races in Wisconsin, two in Minnesota and one each in Michigan and Illinois before the season is complete.

ASA Midwest Tour Kwik Trip Touring Star and local hero Montello's Kenny Richards will be signing autographs at Schultz Small Engine in Portage, Wisconsin Monday June 11 from Noon until 3PM.
