(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) May 24, 2017 – While persistent rain showers washed away last Saturday night’s Plymouth Dirt Track Racing program, Paul Pokorski and his dedicated Pokorski Motorsports crew remained hard at work last week preparing for a doubleheader Memorial Day weekend of racing.
The crew put in plenty of extra hours repairing the team’s 2016 Maxim, which was badly damaged in an accident involving Andrew Westphal and Lance Fassbender on the opening lap of the PDTR A main on May 6.
After the accident relegated him to a 22nd place finish in the May 6 A main, Pokorski drove the team’s backup car – a 2011 J&J chassis – to a strong third-place finish in the PDTR A main on May 13.
This weekend Pokorski plans to compete with PDTR at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth on Saturday, May 27, before joining the Interstate Racing Association on Sunday, May 28 at the 141 Speedway in Francis Creek.
“We will run the J&J this Saturday at Plymouth and then switch over to the Maxim for Sunday with the IRA at 141,” Pokorski said. “We will use Sunday as a shakedown to make sure we’re good to go with the Maxim for the following Saturday at Plymouth.”
Pokorski will have some extra incentive for a strong showing at PDTR on Saturday night as the evening will be presented by one of his sponsors – Pedal Down Promotions.
Spectator gates will open at 4:30 p.m. with racing scheduled to start at 6 p.m. on Saturday, May 27 at Plymouth. It is also Military Night with the all military personnel admitted free with an ID.
On Sunday, May 28, hot laps are slated to begin at 6 p.m. with racing to follow at 141 Speedway.
The Pokorski Motorsports sponsors for the 2017 season include: Acme Armature Works Inc., Goeden’s Auto Body, Goodwin Racing Engines, Jens, Reinbold & Pfeffer Family Funeral Services & Crematory, Kettle Moraine Landscaping, Novak’s Service Center, Pedal Down Promotions, Christel Sign, Tisler Salvage Inc. and The Cawley Company.

Pokorski Motorsports Sponsor Showcase – Acme Armature Works Inc.
Pokorski Motorsports will like to welcome Acme Armature Works Inc. of Sheboygan as a new sponsor for the 2017 racing season.
Acme Armature Works Inc. debuted last September when Chad Bahrs purchased Sheboygan Armature Works. Located at 2727 North 21st St. in Sheboygan, Acme Armature Works specializes in electrical and servo motor repair and sales for industrial and commercial customers.
Bahrs, who resides in Elkhart Lake with his wife Jamie and three children, describes Acme Armature Works as a one-stop electrical apparatus service shop.
“We specialize in all types of electric motors, spindles, servo motors, and electro-mechanical devices for industrial, commercial and agricultural customers,” Bahrs said. “We are a factory-authorized warranty service center for a wide range of manufactures. We also offer value-added services such as an in-house machine shop, computerized precision dynamic balancing, vibration analysis, predictive/preventative maintenance, welding and light fabricating.”
When it comes to diagnosing problems, providing proper repair analysis and delivering top-notch service for servo motors, Acme’s repair team boasts over 100 years of combined experience working with a wide selection of complex motor systems.
“We specialize in fast, accurate repair, rewind and re-manufacture of all brands of servo motors,” Bahrs said. “During our repair process, every encoder or all feedback devices are checked for proper signals and alignment.”
Acme Armature Works is PDTA (Power Transmission Distributors Association) and EASA (Electrical Apparatus Service Association) certified. In addition, Acme recently earned the Recommended Practice for the Repair of Rotating Electrical Apparatus (ANSI/EASA AR100-2015) accreditation.
Bahrs says Acme’s ability to provide unique in-shop services sets it apart among its competition.
“I think the fact that we do balancing, machine work and welding in our shop sets us apart,” Bahrs said. “We have the ability to do blower wheel balancing, provide a wide range of machine work and weld cast iron, which you don’t see in every other shop,”
Acme Armature Works also sells many makes and models of electric and servo motors.
