SEEKING WILMOT RACEWAY CHAMPIONS

By Michael H.Babicz

In an effort to update records, if anyone can give us information on past Wilmot Raceway champions it would be appreciated.

The records through 1995 which the Raceway has are complete.

Anyone with knowledge of season division champions, special events and Kenosha County Fair winners including UTV/ATV, Demolition Derby and truck/tractor pull will be appreciated.

Anyone with contributions please submit them to michaelbabicz@aol.com and put in the subject line “Wilmot Raceway Champions.”

In addition, anyone with information on who won the first events on the “new track” back in the early 1970s and who might have won the final events on the “old track” surrounding the former Wilmot High School football field, please send that as well.

Thank you!  Have a great off-season.  See you in April, 2018.

The week prior saw the passing of late model ace Russ Scheffler who competed in several special shows at Wilmot over the years, related to several competitors in the DirtKing late model series along with other tours in the Midwest.

Earlier that same week, former Wilmot Raceway scorer Pat Norton, wife of driver Sid Norton and son Scott Norton, passed away.
