(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) May 2, 2018 – After unseasonably cold weather conditions forced the cancellation of the 2018 Plymouth Dirt Track Racing opener at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. Saturday, April 28, Paul Pokorski and his Pokorski Motorsports team ventured to the Beaver Dam Raceway Sunday, April 29 to participate in the Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Car season opener.
While the race was not originally in the team’s weekend plans, Pokorski made a late decision to enter the event with the intention of using the bonus competitive laps to test and tune the team’s 2016 Maxim in preparation for the upcoming PDTR/MSA 360 Sprint Car season.
With dry slick track conditions during the late afternoon event serving to trim the horsepower gap between the high-horsepower IRA cars and Pokorski’s 360 machine, the West Bend competitor enjoyed a productive start to his 26th season of racing.
Pokorski turned in a solid qualifying effort to time in 13th in the 27-car field, which placed him in the sixth starting spot in the first IRA heat race. A bold low pass on Jereme Schroeder vaulted the 2014 MSA Masters Series champion to fifth on the opening lap of the 10-lap heat race, which is where he stayed for the remainder of the event to earn a transfer spot to the 30-lap IRA A-main event.
Pokorski rolled off from the 15th starting spot in the A-main and worked the low groove past several top IRA competitors, including eight-time IRA champion Bill Balog and two-time IRA champ Scotty Neitzel in the opening laps.
After running as high as 11th over the first 10 laps of the event, Pokorski turned in a smooth effort along the low line of the third-mile clay oval to finish with a 15th-place showing in a race won by Steve Meyer.
“With our opener at Plymouth cancelled by weather, we wanted to get the car on the track this weekend to test some things out and get a feel for it,” Pokorski said. “All in all, everything went well and now we are really looking forward to starting off our PDTR and MSA points season this Saturday at Plymouth.”
The Pokorski Motorsports team is now scheduled to open its 2018 PDTR/MSA campaign at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth on Saturday, May 5.
The event will feature an earlier start time with the grandstand scheduled to open at 2:30 p.m., hot laps slated for 3:30 p.m. and racing set to begin at 4 p.m.
The Pokorski Motorsports sponsors for the 2018 season include: Quest Engineering Inc., 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, Tisler Salvage Inc., Allied Bearing Corporation and The Cawley Company.
