Pokorski looks to close out 2016 season on high note
(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) September 27, 2016 – After nearly a month off from competition, Paul Pokorski and his Pokorski Motorsports team will return to action for the final Midwest Sprint Car Association event of the 2016 season this Saturday, Oct. 1 at the Dodge County Fairgrounds Speedway in Beaver Dam.
The team has been idle since completing a tripleheader weekend at the Plymouth Dirt Track, Manitowoc Speedway and 141 Speedway in Francis Creek over the Labor Day Holiday Weekend.
After a rare in-season four-week break, Pokorski is eager to get back in the seat for the 2016 MSA finale on the high speed Dodge County Fairgrounds Speedway, which is commonly referred to as “the horsepower half mile.”
The lightning fast facility has been quite kind to the Pokorski Motorsports team this year. Pokorski drove to a season-best second place finish in the MSA A main on July 8 and followed that up with a solid eighth place showing in A main action on Aug. 5. .
“Dodge County is not my favorite track, but I like it better than some others,” Pokorski said. “Now that we’ve been there a few times, I’m starting to feel more comfortable than I did a couple years ago.”
Pokorski enters the final race of the 2016 in an unfamiliar position. Since 1995, the 24-year veteran West Bend driver has recorded an A main victory in every season except two (2011, 2013), including feature race triumphs during each of the past two seasons. However, an A main triumph has eluded the team this season.
Pokorski enters the Dodge County curtain closer sixth in MSA points, three points behind Lance Fassbender, who currently stands fifth.
After the Plymouth Dirt Track Racing season finale was rained out on Sept. 10, Pokorski ended the PDTR season 11th in points, despite missing a night to attend a wedding.
He wound up second in points in Eastern Wisconsin Stock Car action at Manitowoc Speedway, just four points behind 2016 EWSC champion Brandon McMullen, who leads Kurt Davis by 14 points in the MSA standings going into Saturday’s finale.
Pokorski says the team has spent the bulk of the 2016 season getting acquainted with the ins and outs of its new Maxim.
“The new car definitely presented us with a bit of a learning curve this year,” Pokorski said. “I feel like we really started to get a hold of it the last month or so.”
Pokorski hopes to cap the 2016 season on a high note before the team begins preparations for the 2017 campaign, which will mark the team’s silver anniversary season of competition.
“I’m hoping we can finish strong and head into the offseason with a positive attitude,” Pokorski said. “I am looking forward to taking the car apart and going through it over the winter in preparation for our 25th season of racing in 2017.”
Joining the MSA series at the Dodge County Fairgrounds this Saturday will be the Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Car Series and the Wisconsin Dirt Late Model Association Lucky 7 Series. Hot laps are scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. with racing to follow at 7:15 p.m
