SCHULTZ JR. EYES THREE-PEAT IN NORWAY
AUTO VALUE SUPER STOCKS IN 2019
(handful of new faces will spice up division in ’19)
(Norway, MI) April 25 – Vulcan’s Tim Schultz Jr. is looking to score a hat trick in terms of Auto Value Super Stock track titles in 2019.
The third-generation racer has captured the division crown the past two seasons. A few new faces in the division plus a handful of tough, familiar foes are guaranteed to make the championship chase a tough one for Schultz who chalked up four feature wins and seven fast time awards a year ago.
Among the chief competitors returning are a bevy of feature winners from the previous year – Andy Gerwig of Norway (3 main event wins), teen sensation Parker Cain of Big Bay (two feature wins) and former champion Ryan Wender of Upper Pine Creek (2 feature wins). Wender’s effort will be part time in 2019.
Other top regular competitors who are expected back on a full-time basis include Marinette, Wisconsin’s Kevin Peterson, Pembine, Wisconsin’s Anthony Schiefelbein, Vulcan’s John Mattia Jr. and John and Savanna Novara of Kingsford.
Among the rookie candidates will be 2018 stock four champion Adam Faull of Vulcan, Athelstane, Wisconsin’s Kelly LaCount and the Vulcan brother act of Jake and Jesse Dulford. Ishpeming’s Gary Stanaway will also return to the super stock ranks full time in 2019.
Part-timers fans can expect to see on occasion will include Peshtigo native John Komp and Norway veteran and diehard Ford campaigner Al Bilski. From the Fox Valley Norway fans can expect occasional visits from Tony, Peter and Jeff Wilz of Menasha, Alex Seidl of Appleton and Trev, Derek and Ed Howard from Kaukauna.
