Pepsi Challenge Series Returns, Sunday, for Super Late Models

Midwest Sportsman Make First 2016 Appearance

(Slinger, WI) A championship race within a championship is up this Sunday night, May 22, at the Slinger Super Speedway as the track hosts round one of the Pepsi Challenge Series for the super late models. In addition to season-long championship points, drivers will be competing for the overall crown of the three-race Pepsi Challenge Series.

On the way to capturing his third consecutive track championship in 2015, Steve Apel also claimed the Pepsi Challenge Series crown by virtue of three, top-three feature finishes.

“These Challenge Series races get really competitive,” recalls Apel. “There is extra money on the line, so you’ll see guys that might not run Slinger every week, or guys who aren’t in the track championship hunt, come out hungry. It’s a championship within the championship.”

For the first time in 2016, the super late models will be joined on Sunday night by the Midwest Sportsman, a division that sees Brian Holtz as the defending track champion. A full program of Heros Bee’s and area sportsman racing as well as the night capper, figure 8’s also awaits.

Gates open Sunday evening at 4:45 p.m. with qualifying at 5:00. Opening ceremonies are set for 6:30 with racing to follow.
