(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) April 27, 2017 – After a long winter of preparation, the Paul Pokorski Motorsports team will open its 25th anniversary season in full throttle with an action-packed, three-race weekend.
The team will fire up the 2017 season by entering the Interstate Racing Association (IRA) 410 Sprint Car Series Battle on the Bay event at the Luxemburg Speedway Friday, April 28. Pokorski and his crew will then head south to kick off the Midwest Sprint Car Association (MSA) season at the Plymouth Dirt Track Racing opener Saturday, April 29. The team will then round out its three-race weekend excursion by competing in the MSA portion of the Harry Neitzel Memorial event at Dodge County Fairgrounds in Beaver Dam on Sunday, April 30.
Pokorski, who began his racing career in the Eastern Wisconsin Stock Car (EWSC) Winged Super Modified division in 1993, is looking forward to the opportunity to get the 2017 season off to a strong start.
“The goals for the weekend are to have some fun at Luxemburg running with the IRA guys and hopefully shake out any little bugs from the car and the driver,” Pokorski said. “On Saturday and Sunday things get a little bit more intense. We finished pretty strong the last few nights at Plymouth last year, and we’ve had a few good runs at Dodge County lately. I’m hoping that we can build off those recent showings and kick our season off right.
In 21 Midwest Sprint Car Association (MSA) 360 sprint car events last year, Pokorski posted five top-five finishes in A-main competition, along with 12 top-10 A-main finishes and seven heat race victories. The team also competed in four Interstate Racing Association (IRA) 410 Sprint Car Series events, highlighted by a 19th-place A-main finish at the now defunct Manitowoc Expo Speedway on July 1.
The team’s best A-main finish of the 2016 season was a second-place showing in MSA competition at the Dodge County Fairgrounds in Beaver Dam on July 8th.
The 2014 MSA Masters Series champ and a three-time EWSC Winged Super Modified champion, has penciled in a total of 33 races at six different tracks in 2017, including 20 races at the Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds – the home track of the MSA.
IRA qualifying at Luxemburg Speedway is scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, April 28. Racing is set to start at 6 p.m. at the Plymouth Dirt Track Racing opener on Saturday, April 29. A special early start time will be in effect at the Dodge County Fairgrounds in Beaver Dam on Sunday, April 30, with warm ups at 4 p.m. and racing at 5:30 p.m.
