Alex Prunty on the Verge of His First Super Late Model Slinger Title


Slinger, WI) Sunday night, September 2 will be the final night race of the 2018 season at the Slinger Super Speedway and will likely usher in a new super late model champion. Keith’s Marina presents the Labor Day Special. The program features a 100-lap main event for the super late models and will serve as the championship night for the track’s premier division.

The super late models will be joined on Sunday night by a full program for the late models, area sportsman, Slinger bee’s, figure 8’s and one-on-one spectator races.

The evening also features a gigantic post-race fireworks display brought to you, in part, by Bonafide Security Solutions, PMF Landscape Supply and DeAngelis Construction.

Alex Prunty maintains a 70 point lead over his uncle Dennis Prunty atop the super late model point standings. Alex is a former Slinger bee’s champion and a two-time Slinger Speedway late model track champion. A championship on Sunday night would be his first super late model title.

“We’ll treat this race no differently than any of our other races this season,” stated Alex Prunty. “Capping the season off with a win would be an explanation point on a great season. We’re expecting a great field of cars and look forward to an excellent crowd.”

Gates open Sunday at 4:45 p.m. with qualifying scheduled for 5:00 p.m. Opening ceremonies begin at 6:30 with racing to follow. The Sunday night show features a Monday night, September 3 rain date.

The night will also feature a new class of Wall of Fame inductees. Five personalities that added to the over 70 year history of Slinger Speedway will be honored at intermission. As part of the Wall of Fame ceremony, any former Slinger Speedway racer is encouraged to register for free admission.

Rain last week forced the Memorial Go-Kart event to be added to the Sunday, September 2 race day. The Go-Karts will run their program in the afternoon with the charities fundraiser and Balloons to Heaven launch scheduled to take place as part of the night race program.

Championships will be decided in all the remaining divisions, when the track brings down the curtain on its 2018 campaign, Sunday afternoon, September 9.
