(Bill W) May 11, 2018, Monroe, IA – Generous contributions from Allan Holland of and race fan Jim Harris of Millard Nebraska this week have upped the Midwest Thunder Sprint Cars point fund significantly!  After last weekend’s events at Lake Ozark Speedway and Knoxville, Brooke Tatnell leads the charge, ahead of Austin McCarl, Davey Heskin, Terry McCarl and Matt Juhl.

Donny Schatz (Lake Ozark) and Brian Brown (Knoxville) were the two newest winners in point eligible races.  With the IRA stop in Jackson, Minnesota postponed a week to May 18, the lone point eligible race will run this Saturday night at the Knoxville Raceway in Iowa.
