Luke Fenhaus is ready to kick off the Wisconsin Challenge Series (WCS) this Thursday night at his home track of State Park Speedway.  After a tough battle in the season opener, he eyes a return trip to Victory Lane as the WCS comes to town.

“We were really good last time and I think we have a good car to go and win on Thursday,” said Fenhaus.  “There will be a lot of good guys since it’s the first Challenge Series race, so we just gotta do our best there.”

The 2018 State Park Speedway Super Late Model champion received some slight damage to his No. 4 machine early in the first race of the year that hindered his performance.  However, he still held on for a sixth-place finish.  This Thursday’s WCS race will feature extended Super Late Model practice, individual qualifying and a 75-lap feature race.

“I think we just need to be good through our practice and qualifying and get the car really good for the race,” said Fenhaus.  “And really just stay focused on winning and that’s all.”

Besides a hiccup in his first State Park Speedway race, Fenhaus experienced some mechanical problems last weekend at Madison International Speedway for the second round of the Alive for Five.  The 2019 Kulwicki Driver Development Program driver finished 13th in the first of two 50-lap features, but power steering problems forced him to retire from the second feature early.

“Madison is an amazing facility and I love going to watch or race there,” said Fenhaus.  “It’s probably one of my favorite tracks.  We had power steering issues through both features.  In the first feature I was able to hang on to it and we were pretty good and moved up several spots.  But in the second feature it got worse and worse and we had to come in.”

For Thursday’s Wisconsin Challenge Series race at State Park Speedway qualifying will begin at 6:00pm with racing at 7:00pm.  Make sure to follow Luke Fenhaus Racing on Facebook and Twitter for updates.  If you are unable to make it to the track, this race can also be seen live on
