Point Leaders Close out 2016 Successfully
Story By: Brandon Aschenbrenner

The 2016 Regular Season came to a close with Season Championship/Pot of Gold night at Golden Sands Speedway. Coming into the night, the point leaders in each division were hoping for a clean easy night to secure the championships. That is exactly what happened as all of the leaders starting the night, ended the night on top of the standings. Dakotah Meyer took care of business in the Paul Gross Jeweler’s Powder Puff race picking up the Diamond Necklace grand prize. The Cruisers raced as well with Vanstedum and Kuhn (77) taking the win. The cruiser championship will be decided at the Eve of Devastation on Saturday, August 27th.

Leading off the night was the Super Stock class. Greg Back (6) took fast time once again, as he has been able to do all year, dominating in qualifying. In the feature event, the point lead going in was 7 points for Brian Weinfurter (24) over Greg Back. This meant that if Back won, Weinfurter would have to finish 2nd to hold onto the championship. Greg Back did exactly what he needed to do early and took the lead quickly. He was able to pull away from the field up front and went on to pick up the easy feature win. Brian Weinfurter strategically worked his way through the field and made his way to 2nd with about 10 laps left and carried on to finish in 2nd place, which was just enough to win the championship by 2 points over Back. Taking 3rd in the race was John Zuch (8), 4th was Matt Komatz (33) and 5th Brad Scholze (87). Rick Beyer (18) was crowned the Rookie of the Year.

The Late Models saw first time visitor on the year, Bobby Kendall (11) take fast time honors. After three heat races, Ryan Hinner (23), Shane Smiley (15) and Wyatt Blashe (78) all made their way to victory lane. The B-Feature was star studded once again and only two drivers made the A Main. Steve Lichtfeld (32) and Justin Mondeik (44) were the drivers to advance. In the A-main, Jake Capek (81) was able to take the early lead and looked very strong. Unfortunately for Capek, the fastest car all season was right on his bumper and Dalton Zehr (7-11) was able to take the lead 8 laps into the 50 lap feature. With 13 laps in, the first yellow came out as Rene Scheinoha (5) stopped on the front stretch. After 2 more laps of green flag racing, Bobby Kendall lost power out of turn 2 and spun brining out another yellow flag. A few more green laps were run with the 7-11 Zehr car continuing to lead. With 22 laps left, Eugene Gregorich Jr. (14) and Jordan Thiel (2) made contact sending the 2 car around in turn 2. Gregorich took his car to the pits for the rest of the race. Up front it would stay the same with Dalton Zehr, topping off his Championship year in style with another feature win. Mark Eswein (71) was able to race his way up to 2nd, Jake Capek had his best run bringing home a 3rd place finish. Reagan May (33) and MG Gajewski (22) rounded out the top 5. Justin Mondeik took the Rookie of the Year title for 2016.

In the Pure Stocks, Travis Volm (76) took fast time, for his first time in 4 years at GSS. Two heats would see Nick Grish (83) and Louie Merriam (17) with victories. In the feature, Travis Volm came into the race with a large point lead, so he just needed to have a decent finish to hold on. Louie Merriam, Dillon Mackesy (93) and Travis Volm were able to make their way through the field and found themselves battling for the win. Louie would reign and hang on for the feature win. Travis Volm took 2nd, which would confirm his championship run topping Louie Merriam in the standings. Dillon Mackesy ended up in 3rd in the race and 3rd in the points, but was also awarded as Rookie of the Year. Brandon Knoblock got up to 4th after starting in back as last race’s feature winner and Hunter Cramer took home a top 5 finish.

The 4-Cylinder open class found a familiar driver picking up fast time, and it was Ian Arneson (14). Three heats would show Brett Breitenfeldt (7), Shawn Kemnetz (24) and Jimmer Lietz (93) to winner’s circle. In the lower feature, Brett “Rex” Breitenfeldt was able to get to the lead and was able to pull away and get his first feature win. Brett would also end up the leader in the Rookie of the Year race for the season. Taking 2nd in the race and 3rd overall in the point standings was Randy “Papa” Polansky (7). Third in the race was Matt Van Pietersom “Milky Way” (17), with Evan Beattie (7) and Andy Hafenbreadl (14), in his first ever race, taking top 5 finishes.
In the upper feature, Jimmer Lietz was able to lead the first laps, but soon George Seliger (06) and Dale Louze (9) would race past Lietz. Louze then would be passed by Ian Arneson and Scott Ciesielski (21). Arneson, who came into the feature only 8 points ahead of Ciesielski would stay in front of the 21 and finish in 2nd place behind Seliger who picked up his 2nd win on the year at GSS. With that 2nd place finish, Arneson was crowned as the 2016 champion by 13 points over Ciesielski who would come home 3rd in the race. Dale Louze and Jimmer Lietz would finish out the top 5.

Gregorich Fends Off Zehr; Knoblock and Polansky Grab First Wins
Story By: Brandon Aschenbrenner

It was Blu Play Cafe Night at Golden Sands Speedway and all normal divisions were in action. It was also Kid’s Stock Car Ride night with a candy/money drop as well. The Paul Gross Jeweler’s Powder Puff racers were in action too and it would be Dawn Koch, Mary Oleson and Donna Rae Polansky, who won on a last lap pass, picking up the wins. The champion will be decided in two weeks at the next event. The Cruisers joined us as well with Ciesielski and Hill (73) picking up the win over Kuhn and Mancil (126). Their championship will be decided at the Eve of Devastation on Saturday, August 27th.

Leading off the night was the Super Stock class. Greg Back (6) took fast time once again as he has dominated in qualifying all season. In the feature, Rick Beyer (18) and Matt Komatz (33) lead the field to green. Komatz was able to lead the first lap, but John Zuch (8) took over the top spot on lap 2. Brian Weinfurter (24) spent the race running down Zuch and was able to catch him and pass him with just 5 laps to go. Greg Back made his way through the field like he has all year, but ended up only making it to second as he ran out of laps. Brian Weinfurter picked up the feature win, Back would come home in 2nd place, John Zuch 3rd, Greg Matthews (8) 4th and Brad Scholze (87) 5th. In the points, Weinfurter has a 10 point lead over Back and it will all come down to the final race night to decide the champion.

The Late Models saw Steve Litchfield (32) take fast time honors for his first time on the season. After three heat races, Mike Olson (64), Jordan Thiel (2) and Eugene Gregorich Jr (14) all made their way to victory lane. The B-Feature would have two drivers making the A Main. Chad Devine (54) and Jake Capek (81) made contact and caused a caution on the front stretch while they were fighting for the transfer spot. That allowed MG Gajewski (22) and Mike Olson to go on to the A Feature by placing 1st and 2nd. In the A-main, Monte Gress (80) and Colin Reffner (87) lead the field to the green flag. Reffner took the early edge, until caution flew on lap 8 when MG Gajewski spun out of turn 2. After the restart, we would get 8 more laps completed until a second caution flew for the 32 car of Litchfield who spun in turn 4. Eugene Gregorich Jr took the lead position with 29 laps to go and tried to pull away from the field. Natalie Decker (04) was on his tail, but so was Dalton Zehr (7-11), who has been very hard to beat this season. Zehr got to 2nd past Decker with 17 laps remaining. Gregorich caught lap traffic with 5 laps left and that allowed Zehr to close up to the bumper of Gregorich on the last lap of the race, but it would be Gregorich fending off Zehr for the feature win. Natalie Decker held on for 3rd, Reagan May (33) took 4th and Colin Reffner salvaged a top 5 finish. Zehr holds a point lead of 62 now over Eugene Gregorich and Reagan May, last year’s champ, is 65 points out of first. Zehr can lock up the championship by taking the green flag in the A-main on championship night.

In the Pure Stocks, Brock Heinrich (52) took fast time as he has a few times already this season. Two heats would see Hunter Cramer (66) and Chad Weis (0) with victories. In the feature, after completing the first lap, Dave Lashua (01) and Hunter Cramer (66) made contact sending the 66 car spinning and brining out a yellow. They would restart in the back and we would try to start the race again. This time, we got 1 more lap in before Louie Merriam (17) had a tire go down on his car and pushed Carter Kauth (97) into the front stretch barrels, but they were both able to continue. After all of that chaos, Kurtis Wosick (61) found himself out front, but only for 2 laps as Brandon Knoblock (16X), driving Kyle Genett’s 16 car, took the lead. With 14 laps remaining, Weis and Kauth made contact in turn 2 and that would collect Heinrich as well. On the restart, Knoblock held off the field and made his way to victory lane for the first time on the season. Karl Genett (16K), Travis Volm (76), Dillon Mackesy (93) and Brian “Butchie” Schramm, his first trip to the track in over 10 years, would all take top 5s. Volm has a 29 point lead over Mackesy with Merriam in 3rd, only 5 points behind Mackesy. Volm needs to have a decent night to add another track championship to his resume.

The 4-Cylinder open class fast timer was Ian Arneson, with a blistering speed. Three heats would show Brandon Polansky (287), Tim Finstad (33), in his first night on his new car and Scott Ciesielski (21) to winner’s circle. In the lower bracket feature, after completing one lap, Brandon Polansky was working his way through the field and contact would occur with the 14 car of Eric Breitenfeldt and Karley Kemnetz (18) spinning the 18 towards the infield. Brett Breitenfeldt (7) had no place to go and hit the 18 car, but it shot Brett into the air, which actually caused little damage and he would be able to continue. Kemnetz would not be as luck and her night ended early. After the restart, Brandon Polansky continued his tear through the field and he would go on to pick up the feature win. Brett Breitenfeldt was closing near the end, but ran out of laps as he wound up 2nd. Matt Van Pietersom “Milky Way” (17) took 3rd, Eric Breitenfeldt 4th and Randy Polansky (7) 5th. In the upper bracket feature, Tim Finstad led the first 5 laps until George Seliger (06) took over and pulled away from the field cruising to an easy feature win. Finstad would hold on to 2nd place with Phil Malouf (32), Tim Hintz (1) and Ian Arneson finishing out the top 5. In the points, Arneson holds a slim 8 point lead over Ciesielski. This means it could be only 2 spots that Ciesielski needs to take the championship on the final night. Randy Polansky is in the running as well as he is 23 points out of the lead. 
The next event at Golden Sands Speedway is Friday, August 5th. It’s our Season Championship Night! Also, it is Pot of Gold Night. All of our divisions will be back in action including Late Models, Super Stocks, Pure Stocks and 4-Cylinders. Gates open at 4:30, Qualifying at 6:30 and Racing at 7:45.

Zehr Continues His Winning Ways
Story By: Brandon Aschenbrenner

It was Fan Appreciation Night at Golden Sands Speedway and all normal divisions were in action. It was also Fey Printing Paper Airplane Contest night for the kids during intermission and the fans were rewarded with excitement during intermission and on the race track.

Leading off the night was the Super Stock class. Greg Back (6) took fast time for now the 3rd week in a row. In the feature, Rick Beyer (18) and Matt Komatz (33) lead the field to green. Beyer was able to lead early, but a yellow flag flew for Beyer and Brad Scholze (87) and would bunch the field back up. On the restart, Brian Weinfurter (24) would make his way to the front and capture the lead. A second caution would bring the field back together with 13 laps to go when contact occurred between Greg Back and John Zuch (8) in turn 2. On the restart, Weinfurter would try to put as much space as possible between himself and the rest of the field and succeeded in doing so.  Greg Back worked his way up through the field steadily until he made it to 2nd place, but ran out of laps as Weinfurter picked up his 2nd win of the year. Back would come home in 2nd place, with Matt Komatz, Matt Ciesielski (21) with his door barely hanging on from damage in the first caution and Brad Scholze also with damage finishing top 5. In the points, Weinfurter has a 9 point lead over Back.

The Late Models saw Reagan May (33) take fast time honors. After three heat races, Ryan Hinner (23), Mike Olson (64) in his first time back since a big wreck in week 1 and Steve Litchfield (32) all made their way to victory lane. The B-Feature was star studded with many big hitters and only two drivers making the A Main. Mark Eswein (71), Darren Jackson (2), Frank Nitzke (18) and Ryan Hinner were all lined up in the top 4 positions for most of the race. Eswein eventually made his way to the front for the win, but the last transfer spot was not settled until the final lap. Hinner and Nitzke were side by side and Darren Jackson looked to the inside and opened the lane on Hinner and made a pass out of turn 2 to grab the 2nd spot and move into the feature with Eswein. In the A-main, Dave Neitzke (06) and Chad Devine (54) lead the field to the green flag. Neitzke would pace the field early, but a caution would come out 8 laps into the race for contact between Justin Mondeik (44) and Steve Litchfield. On the restart, after almost completing a lap, Wyatt Blashe (78) and Dave Neitzke made contact in the front of the field off of turn 4 and caused Neitzke to spin. This would end Dave’s night and also Eugene Gregorich Jr suffered night ending damage. On the 2nd restart attempt, we got one lap completed and then MG Gajewski (22) slowed out of turn 2 to bring out another caution. Colin Reffner (87) would lead for the next laps until the very fast Dalton Zehr (7-11) car made his way past Reffner with 25 laps to go. Zehr would go on to win in a dominating performance with Natalie Decker (04), Reagan May, Colin Reffner and Jordan Thiel (2) rounding out the top 5. Zehr holds a point lead of 47 over Reagan May.

In the Pure Stocks, Dillon Mackesy (93) took fast time. Two heats would see Hunter Cramer (66) and Brock Heinrich (52) with victories. In the feature, it took 3 starts to finally get into a rhythm. The first caution was before 1 lap was completed when the whole field played bumper tag and a bumper came off in turn 3 and 4. The second start got 1 lap completed but then had Dave Lashua (01) and Carter Kauth (97) forced to the rear for causing a yellow. After a restart, 1 more lap was completed but again slowed for a spin on the front stretch sending Brandon Knoblock (71) and Kyle Genett (16X) to the rear. Finally the field settled a bit, and went back to green. During the race, it still was a hard fought battle with old school bomber style bumping and grinding on all of the cars. Hunter Cramer lead the field until the final laps when Louie Merriam (17) and Dillon Mackesy made their way around Cramer at the same time to move to 1st and 2nd. Mackesy would then fight off Merriam to pick up the feature win. Merriam would hold on to 2nd, Karl Genett (16K) made some headway in the upper grove to finish 3rd, Hunter Cramer fell back to 4th and Travis Volm took home 5th. Volm has a 22 point lead over Merriam with Mackesy in 3rd, 24 points out of the lead.

The 4-Cylinder open class did not qualify because of a small rain shower that hit the race track. Two heats would show Eric Robinson (2) and Scott Ciesielski (21) to winner’s circle. In heat 1, a big wreck occurred when Kiley Irwin (13) spun in turn 4 early in the race and Jenna Breitenfeldt (14) was not able to avoid the 13 car and made heavy contact ending the nights of both drivers. Both racers were not injured in that wreck. In the lower feature, it was all Eric Robinson as he took the lead and ran away from everyone going on to the easy win. Matt Van Pietersom (17) who we know as “Milky Way” took 2nd, Corey Stephens (3), Randy “Papa” Polansky (7) and Jim Belling (44) brought home top 5 finishes. In the upper feature, Ian Arneson (14) started near the back, but that would not last long as he was able to duck in and out of traffic and take the lead after 1 and a half laps. He would run away up front until Scott Ciesielski ran him down, but was not able to get to Arneson’s bumper.  Arneson picked up his first win and Ciesielski was relegated to 2nd, Keith Wosick (61), Jerad DeBoer (2) and Shawn Kemnetz (24) finished out the top 5.

The next event at Golden Sands Speedway is Friday, July 22nd. It’s Blu Play Café Kids Night with Kid’s stock car rides from 7:15 to 7:30 and a candy/penny drop and many special prizes. All of our divisions will be back in action including Late Models, Super Stocks, Pure Stocks, 4-Cylinders and Cruisers. Gates open at 4:30, Qualifying at 6:30 and Racing at 7:45.

Great Fireworks Display Follows Great Racing Action
By: Brandon Aschenbrenner

Another beautiful night of racing at Golden Sands Speedway took place on Friday and fans filled the seats to watch some wonderful racing action and also a spectacular fireworks show by Spielbauer and Skypainter Fireworks. Dakotah Meyer picked up the win in the Paul Gross Jewelers Powder Puff Challenge race and Robert Oium won the Burnout contest. The two-man cruisers were also back for a night and Ciesielski and Hill took the win in their 73 car.

For the Super Stock Division, it was Greg Back (6) taking fast time honors for the 2nd week in a row. In the feature, it would be Matt Komatz (33) leading early. John Zuch (8), the Baraboo native, would make his way around Komatz and start to pull away with 12 laps to go. Brian Weinfurter (24), last weeks feature winner and point leader, tried to run down Zuch in the final laps and got to the bumper, but could not execute a pass and Zuch would go on to pick up the feature victory. Weinfurter took 2nd, Back 3rd, Greg Matthews (8) 4th and Matt Ciesielski (21) 5th. In the Points, Weinfurter has a 4 point edge on Zuch with Back 5 points out of the lead.

In the Late Model division, Ryan Hinner (23) took fast time. In 3 heat races, Darren Jackson (2), Jake Capek (81) and Wyatt Blashe (78) would all find their way to victory lane. In the feature, Frank Nitzke (18) would make the move early to take the top spot, but a yellow would fly when Shane Smiley (15) had some issues that would make the car stop on the race track. Back to green found Nitzke and Eugene Gregorich Jr. (14) battling for 1st. Gregorich would prevail and set sail. With 23 laps to go, Dalton Zehr (7-11), last week’s feature winner, made his way past Mark Eswein (71) for the second spot and would start to run down Gregorich, but appeared like it would be a lost cause until a caution came out with 2 laps left when Reagan May (33) spun out in turn 2. On the single file restart, Gregorich held the bottom lane and was able to fend of Zehr to pick up the feature win. Zehr held onto 2nd, Steve Litchfield (32) ended up with a very solid 3rd place finish, Eswein 4th and Jordan Theil (2) 5th. In the standings, Zehr has a big 23 point lead on Gregorich.

The Pure Stocks graced the race track with some close hard racing once again and the fastest in qualifying for the 2nd week in a row was Brock Heinrich (52). In two heats, it would be Louie Merriam (17), who took the lead with 2 to go, and Chad Weis (0) the race fan sponsored car making their way to victory circle. In the feature, Mike Weinfurter (4) took the early lead and lead for 7 laps until Hunter Cramer (66) worked his way to the inside and took it away. Cramer and Merriam raced hard in the top two spots until the very fast Travis Volm (76) car made his way to the inside of Cramer and completed a 3 wide pass for the lead with 3 to go. Volm would hang on then for the win with Cramer, Weis, Merriam and Carter Kauth (97) rounding out the top 5. In the point standings, Volm has a very large 33 point lead over Merriam.

In the open 4-cylinder division, Ian Arneson (14) once again took quick time. In the heat races, Jarrod Dolph (13), Jerad DeBoer (2) and Arneson all picked up wins. In the Lower Feature, once the race got started, it would be Garret Strachota (77) working his way past Jarrod Dolph and cruising to his first ever feature win. Karley Kemnetz (18) and Dolph ended with car issues and were not able to finish the race. Taking 2nd to Strachota was Randy “Papa” Polansky (7) with Chris Boykins (12) 3rd, Matt VanPeterson (17) 4th and Josh Klopotek (181) 5th.
In the Upper Feature, Dale Robinson (2) started on pole and lead early. Greg Blount (22) worked his way up to the lead with 11 laps remaining. With 8 laps left, the sparks that were coming out of the Keith Wosick (61) car showed to be an issue with the right rear as his tire came off of the car in turns 1 and 2 and caused a caution. Back to green created the 3 fastest cars to appear in the front of the field once again. This week, George Seliger (06) was the one to be out front and he was able to hold on and pick up the win. Ian Arneson took home a 2nd place for the 2nd week in a row and Scott Ciesielski (21), last week’s winner, took 3rd. The rest of the top 5 in respective order was Dale Louze (9) and Greg Blount. In the point standings, there is a 3 way tie for the lead between Seliger, Arneson and Ciesielski.

Racing continues at Golden Sands Speedway on Friday July 8th and it is Fan Appreciation Night with ALL Fans getting in for $5! Also, it’s Fey Printing Paper Airplane Contest night. Gates open at 4:30, Time Trials at 6:30 and Racing at 7:45. Make sure to check us out on Facebook and our website at

Zehr, Weinfurter, Genett Dominate; De Boer and Ciesielski Win
Story By: Brandon Aschenbrenner

It was Ho-Chunk Gaming Lucky 21 night and the first regular season event at Golden Sands Speedway for 2016. All normal divisions were in action. Brian Weinfurter cruised to the win in the Super Stocks, Dalton Zehr took care of business in the Late Models, Karl Genett took the high lane to the win in the Pure Stocks and Jerad De Boer and Scott Ciesielski picked up wins in the 4-cylinder open class.

Leading off the night was the Super Stock Class. Greg Back (6) took fast time in the Raykowski racing entry. In the heat race, Brian Weinfurter (24) made his way easily to victory lane after making so moves forward early. Greg Back was making his way forward until contact coming to the checkered flag with Matt Ciesielski (21) caused him to spin and would end with both cars scored in the back. In the feature, Weinfurter started on the pole after another car couldn’t make it to the start and proceeded to dominate the event leading all 25 laps. Greg Back took 2nd and looked to be the fastest car on the track, but some issues caused his No. 6 machine to stall out of turn 2 every now and again and kept him back in 2nd for the finish. John Zuch (8) held on to finish 3rd, Greg Matthews (8) 4th and Matt Komatz (33) 5th. Weinfurter will lead the points after their first night in 2016.

The Late Models were on track next with 27 cars taking time. Jordan Thiel (2) took fast time honors for his first time. Four heat races would find Wyatt Blashe (78), Jeff Weinfurter (3), Steve Litchfield (32) and Dalton Zehr (7-11) in victory lane. The B-Feature had the top two drivers advance to the A-main, and those would be Frank Nitzke (18) and Wyatt Blashe. The B-Feature featured a long caution however with contact for the lead between Mike Olson (64) and Jeff Weinfurter would cause both to spin in front of the whole field in turn 1 and left now where else for Monte Gress (80) to go except on top of Olson’s hood and into the side and top of Weinfurter’s car. All drivers were physically fine. In the A-main, Natalie Decker (04) took the early lead. Nine laps in, contact between MG Gajewski (22) and Wyatt Brooks (33) would bring out the first yellow flag. After going back to green for 2 laps, another caution would come out when Steve Litchfield spun in turn 4. On the restart, it was still Decker up front, but making his way through the field was Dalton Zehr. Zehr got around Decker and cruised to the victory. Natalie Decker held onto 2nd place, Reagan May (33) remained solidly in 3rd, Eugene Gregorich Jr. (14) made his way up to 4th and Mark Eswein (71) rounded out the top 5. Zehr will take the point lead into night 2.

In the Pure Stocks, Brock Heinrich (52) took fast time. Two heats would bring Hunter Cramer (66) and Kyle Genett (16X) to victory lane. In the feature Kurtis Wosick (61) grabbed the early lead and tried to put as much room as possible between himself and the field. Karl Genett (16K) however found the high lane and made his way to the front. Caution came out with 18 to go when Louie Merriam (17) spun in turn 4. After going back to racing, Karl was able to work past Wosick and would hang on to the top position for the rest of the night. Travis Volm (76) took 2nd, Wosick ended up 3rd, Dillon Mackesy (93) took 4th and Kyle Genett 5th. Karl is the point leader after night 1.

The open 4-Cylinder open class once again had a great field of cars. Ian Arneson (14) took quick time. Jerad De Boer (2), Jimmer Lietz (93) and John Lietz (92) all snagged heat wins. In the lower feature, things got crazy early. Corey Stephens (3) found himself upside down in the sand to the top of turns 3 and 4 after contact with a few different cars. After a few more laps, Brandon Polansky (287) brought out a yellow out of turn 2. When we got back to green, De Boer was out front and kept it there. Jenna Breitenfeldt (14) tried to run him down, but ended up running out of time. De Boer went on to win his first ever 4-cylinder feature. Breitenfeldt took 2nd for her first time at GSS, Tim Finstad (33) took 3rd, Randy Polansky (7) 4th and Karley Kemnetz (18) 5th, another first time racer. In the Upper Feature, Scott Ciesielski (21) got an early jump and took the lead early. George Seliger (06) and Ian Arneson made their way to the front as well and battled it out to the end for the win. Ciesielski would hold on to pick up the win, Arneson took 2nd, Seliger 3rd, Dale Louze (9) 4th and John Lietz (92) 5th.
