(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) June 21, 2017 – After dealing with a perplexing engine problem in its previous race, Paul Pokorski and his Pokorski Motorsports team went into last Saturday’s Plymouth Dirt Track Racing program thinking those motor woes had been straightened away.
The engine issue forced the team to scratch from the Midwest Sprint Car Association A main at Angell Park on Sunday, June 11. On the following day, the Pokorski crew went through the process of pulling the motor out of the car. While doing so, the team found that a piece in the fuel injection system had come loose.
Upon fixing the fuel injection issue, the team pulled into The Plymouth Dirt Track to take on a stout field of 31 PDTR Sprint Cars on Saturday, June 17.
However, once again the evening was cut short when motor problems resurfaced in hot laps. After attempting to fix the problem to no avail, the team was forced to scratch for the evening.
“We aren’t sure what’s wrong with the car yet,” Pokorski said. “We pulled the motor out on Monday and we will send it to our engine builder to get it check out.
“We will be working over the next few days to get our back-up J&J car out again to race this weekend,” he said.
The team is eyeing another doubleheader weekend, which is scheduled to start with an event at Spring Lake Speedway in Unity on Friday, June 23, followed by a return to The Plymouth Dirt Track on Saturday, June 24.
“I have never raced up at Unity,” Pokorski said. “I have only seen the pictures of the track that others have posted. I’m looking forward to racing there.”
Spring Lake Speedway is located at 4854 County Road F in Unity Wisconsin. Hot laps are scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. with racing set to start at 7:30 p.m.
Spectator gates will open at 4:30 p.m. with racing set to start at 6 p.m. this Saturday, June 24 at Plymouth.
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.
