FOUNTAIN CITY, Wis. - Champions were crowned, announcements were made and, in the end, Mississippi Thunder Speedway called it a successful, informative and building year for the new owners. Promoter Bob Timm gave accolades to his family and many others for their continued support throughout the season. Many others who helped on a nightly basis were mentioned before moving on to the many sponsors who were big components of the track this season including but not limited to The Engine Store, Lou Fegers Racing Equipment, Les Duellman Racing, Jailhouse Saloon, O’Reilly Auto Parts, NAPA, River City Manufacturing, Hank Rollinger Racing Supply, Winona Auto Sales, Redbox+, Winona Auto Sales and Bud Stevens.

The decision was made to eliminate the Hornets as a class on a regular basis, however, the WISSOTA Late Models have been added to the regular schedule. All other classes will be determined just after the first of the year. Transponders will be mandatory at the speedway and will help the program along with the intent of getting the show in by 10:30 each night. Although MTS has no curfew, it is ideal to give the fans quality in a reasonable time frame.

A slide show was presented prior to each class being awarded their trophies and checks.

John Doelle sealed the River City Manufacturing USRA Modified championship by 13 points over Josh Angst.

Hank Rollinger Jr. finished third, followed by Paul Hamernik in fourth and Adam Stockhausen trailed Hamernik by one point to finish fifth on the season.

There are many things to look forward to in 2010. The scheduled season opener will be April 16.

Be sure to check the track website for updates to the season after the first of the year. Have a great winter, because the season opener is right around the corner!
