LAST YEAR AT JEFFERSON: 2013 Jefferson Speedway Track Champion Dale Nottestad shook off his Friday frustrations and felt Saturday sensations, sweeping the 33rd Annual Wisconsin State Championships. After issues in qualifying on Friday evening, Nottestad was forced to fight through a Friday night qualifying race. Nottestad avoided an early race wreck and won the qualifier, putting him in the 15th starting spot for Saturday’s first 75 lap feature. Nottestad raced through the field in both events, claiming both 75’s and the overall Wisconsin State Championship. Eventual Big 8 Series champion Casey Johnson was the weekend’s fast qualifier and finished second in both 75’s and overall.

THIS YEAR: For the second straight season, the Wisconsin State Championships at Jefferson kick off ‘four races in four weeks’ to determine the 2014 Big 8 Late Model Series champion. Defending series champion Casey Johnson leads his chief nemesis from 2013 Dale Nottestad by just four points in this year’s chase. Slinger Big 8 winner Austin Nason sits third, just thirteen points off the lead. ‘Driver X’ Jon Reynolds Jr, a three-time Big 8 winner in 2014, sits six points behind Nason and nineteen points behind Johnson. Young guns John DeAngelis Jr and Jesse Bernhagen are still in the battle for the championship and are separated by just two points in fifth and sixth.
