VandeKamp built up an immediate lead while Swearingen closed in on Benson. Drivers began to space out and as VandeKamp prepped to lap cars, the yellow flag waved. After a couple of restarts, Benson slid by VandeKamp for the top point, but neither Swearingen nor VandeKamp let him get too far away. One final caution slowed the drivers, but it was still Benson, VandeKamp and Swearingen in a fight for first. As the green waved, they raced three wide into the curve. Jake Smith, who started in 18th, moved into top points and challenged Nick Ayotte for fourth. The top five drivers remained close in and out of the turns of the Big O, and as the checkers were raised, Zach Benson took the win.

Bernick lead the majority of the race with Jorgensen on his inside and Kachinske right behind. The trio circled the Gondik Law Speedway nose to tail and often side by side for the first 12 circuits until Jorgensen was able to muscle his way past and into the lead, which he would never relinquish en route to the victory.

Traynor Wins Rice Lake Speedway Little Dream; Record Payoff Tops Twenty Eight Grand

By Ed Reichert

Rice Lake WI, August 2 – The Twenty Eighth Annual Street Stock Little Dream Race, held on Tuesday night at the Rice Lake Speedway, may well go down as one of the most memorable races in this long series. For Barron Wisconsin's Nick Traynor, it was his second win in this long event's history in the last three years. For fans, this race will be long remembered as the race stopped once by rain and once by a tornado warning and yet the event was completed despite these setbacks. And for those backers of this event, both individuals and businesses from the upper Midwest, they dug deep into their pockets once again as the winner's purse again broke a record for when Traynor crossed the finish line after thirty five laps of racing, he earned $28, 212 for his efforts as the old record set last year was shattered once again.

Fifty three drivers from four states and Canada signed in to race on Tuesday, despite forecasts that indicated a 90% chance of rain by race time. Fifteen qualifying events were completed with lightning flashing in all directions around the speedway. At this point, track owners Mitch Hansen and Dave Adams ordered that the grandstands be evacuated as the area was under a tornado warning for the next twenty minutes. Most spectators sought shelter in speedway buildings or headed to their cars. When the warning expired, racing would continue with the Last Chance race seeing Kolton Brauer pass up the $500 winner's share for the opportunity to race in the main event.

     After a long two days of competition at the Gondik Law Speedway, the Sixth Annual Border Battle came to a close on Saturday night July 2nd  finishing up with the $10,000 to win WISSOTA Modified 50 lap feature. 
     The previous night the Modifieds spent their time racing double heat races with the order for the feature determined by passing points accrued during these qualifying races for the top sixteen drivers. Before the complete starting grid could
be completed, a pair of Semi-Features were run, each qualifying four more drivers to the main event. In the first, Billy Kendall III, Ward Imrie, Darrell Nelson and Cole Spacek qualified and in the second Andy Jones, Brandon Copp, Clayton Wagamon and Shane Howell qualified.
     Prior to the start of the 50 lap grind, something unique occurred, all of the 24 starters were run across the victory circle where their deck height was checked. All starters checked as legal. 
     The two dozen starters moved onto the racing surface led by local racers Jody Bellefeuile and Al Uotinen on the front row. At starter Ray Stuart's green flag the field roared into life. Bellefeuille bolted to the front with Uotinen, Rodney Sanders, Daniel Bargender and Shane Sabraski close behind. Bellefeuille held onto the point over Sanders, Uotinen, Don Eischens and Sabraski. There was a caution flag on lap three for the 26G of Ryan Gierke. At the restart Bellefeuille continued to lead as Eischens got past Sanders to second. Sabraski and Uotinen followed as Ashley Anderson moved up to challenge the top five. The top four remained that way for a few laps while there was movement further back as Anderson cracked the top five and Mike Anderson was sixth from his tenth starting spot. Bellefeuille maintained the lead over Eischens as the pair began to widen the gap back to Sanders. Back behind fifth place Ashley Anderson, Mike Anderson was joined by Johnny Broking who had slipped past Uotinen.

In other action, unlike the Modified feature, the Midwest Modified feature became a "Caution-fest" with five of them, mostly in the last half of the 25 lap event. >>READ MORE

The WISSOTA Midwest Modifieds were the first feature of the night with Jake Smith and Cole Boston on the front row. Smith claimed the immediate lead with Boston in second. Cars covered the whole race surface after just five laps were complete as contact occurred on the back stretch. It took the Midwest Modifieds a couple of tries to get the race back underway, but every time they took the green, Smith continuously drove away from the field. Mike Schnider and Boston battled for the second point, and as Smith prepped to lap drivers, Schnider secured second. Schnider looked ahead for Smith as Jason VandeKamp, who started 12th, slid to Boston’s door. VandeKamp and Boston battled for third amongst lapped traffic, and VandeKamp emerged with the point. VandeKamp began to chase down Schnider as the laps clicked off. Jake Smith was nearly 5 seconds ahead of his competitors as he took the checkered flags. Mike Schnider, Jason VandeKamp, Cole Boston and Zach Benson rounded out the top points. >>READ MORE

This unique event, where contributions from the fans on hand as well as from area businesses and on line contributions swell the purse, broke the record once again for this event as the old record, set last year, was topped by well over one thousand dollars. Johnson also became the third driver to win this prestigious event for the third time, joining Jimmy Randall and Eric Olson in that category and Johnson's three wins in this event have earned him nearly forty three thousand dollars with his other wins coming in 2011 and 2014. >>READ MORE

     The two day fifth annual Border Battle finished it's run on Saturday July 3rd at Gondik Law Speedway on a day that was hotter than hades with temperatures hovering around the 90 degree mark. The only saving grace was a light breeze and humidity in the 30% range.

     Qualifying heats began the night. Only one division had enough cars to have four heats and a B Feature and that was the Midwest Modifieds with a total of 31 entries. In the WISSOTA Modifieds Jody Bellefeuille furthered his chances of winning the $2500 bonus posted if he was able to sweep both nights. He won his heat as did Corey Jones and Jeremy Nelson. Shane Sabraski and Kevin Burdick won Super Stock heats and Sabraski was in line for a bonus if he w as able to sweep the division as he had the night before.

Ogilvie, MN (May 29) – Saturday was night one of the 16th Annual Wehrs Machine Minnesota Modified Nationals driven by Boston Trucking, and 95 drivers signed in to battle.

Wisconsin Modified Nationals Cancelled at Gondik Law;
Minnesota Mod Nats Still a Go at The Big O 

May 26th, 2021 – For Immediate Release 

Regrettably, the Wisconsin Modified Nationals fueled by Superior Fuel Co., which was scheduled for Wednesday-Friday, May 26th-28th has been cancelled due to weather.

The Gondik Law Speedway, the Twin Ports of Duluth and Superior and the surrounding areas have received a large amount of rain over the past two weeks, which lead to a soft racing surface this past Friday night. That, coupled with more rain on Sunday and Monday, making it even more difficult on the facility and the below freezing temperatures in the upcoming late week’s forecast has caused track and event management to mutually agree to cancel the event. 

Temperatures are forecasted to be in the 40s for highs and 30s for lows both Thursday and Friday and the winds are to be blowing directly off of Lake Superior, making real feel temperatures at race time feeling like in the high teens or low 20s.  

To prevent anyone from traveling to Superior, the decision was made today to cancel the entire three-day event.  

On the bright side, the 16th annual Wehrs Machine Minnesota Modified Nationals driven by Boston Trucking, which will be held at the Ogilvie Raceway in Ogilvie, MN on Saturday and Sunday is on as scheduled with a 7pm start time both nights.

WISSOTA Modifieds, Super Stocks, Midwest Modifieds and Hornets are scheduled to be in action both nights with full racing programs each night. 

Tickets are available at the track beginning at 5pm each day. 

For fans not able to be at the track in person, both nights will be broadcast live on PayPerView at

Event promoter Chris Stepan said 'we always hope for highs at least in the 50s and lows in the 40s for this event to take place and the forecast just doesn't show that it's going to be warm enough this coming week.

4th Annual Great Lake Border Battle Sees Several Changes
Late Models Removed From Weekend Schedule
Modifieds Now Racing For $1,500, $2,000 & $2,500
WISSOTA Mod Fours Added All Three Nights

1The 4th running of the Great Lakes Border Battle fueled by Superior Fuel Company, scheduled for July 2nd, 3rd and 4th, 2020 at the Gondik Law Speedway in Superior, Wisconsin is undergoing several event changes leading up to the 4th of July holiday weekend. 

The first of three event changes will see the WISSOTA Late Models removed from the schedule on Friday, July 3rd and Saturday, July 4th. Event promoter Chris Stepan said ‘with Cedar Lake adding the World of Outlaws on both nights of their WoO event and with Mississippi Thunder having a pair of Dirt Kings events those nights now as well, we are going to be a good neighbor and release our Late Models so that all three events aren’t fighting over the same drivers and so that all of the events can be successful. I reached out to approximately 50 local Late Model drivers this week and it was pretty apparent that all three events were going to be targeting the same core group of drivers, so instead of each of us having a dozen cars, we decided to bow out and let the drivers go to another event if they choose.’ >>READ MORE
