New Richmond, WI (May 5, 2017): The FANSFund team has had good success with early fundraising with the fund now over $5,000. Driver votes have also started to trickle in with Chad Zobrist of Highland, IL currently sitting atop the leader board. Current voting can be found at the Driver Voting link on the website. The FANSFund team will be at Cedar Lake Speedway Saturday night May 5th for the Triple Crown event which pays $3,000 to win for the Late Models, Modified, and IRA Sprint cars. Come on out and enjoy a great night of racing and help support the FANSFund!

We are still working to build the Drivers Interested List so please help spread the word and if you know of any drivers interested have them apply by sending an email to and include: their name, email address, phone number they can be reached at, car number and hometown where they currently live. We have a number of new drivers that have already shown interest and we’ll continue to update the Driver Interested List as drivers confirm their interest and commitment to participate in the FANSFund.

A huge thank you to the sponsors that have come on board so far this year: Badger Storage and Excavating, Johnson Motor Sales, Johnson Ford, Casey Farms, Willow River Saloon, Skoglund Oil, GRP Motorsports, JT Auto Sales, Bernicks Pepsi, and Champs Sports Bar and Grill. Please take the opportunity to patronize and thank these great sponsors as we couldn’t have the success we do without their support!
