After a strong run at the Dixieland 250, Luke Fenhaus is ready to get back in the driver’s seat for a busy week of racing. The 15-year-old driver will compete Thursday night at State Park Speedway and then turn around and race with the ARCA Midwest Tour Friday night at Madison International Speedway.
“We just have to stay on top of our game with both races and go out and focus all night long,” said Fenhaus. “We will have both cars ready for both nights. We are running our Fury (chassis) at Madison, so I have to get a good night’s rest and go to Madison Friday after State Park on Thursday.”
The 2018 State Park Speedway champion has raced as him home track five times so far this year. He owns a runner-up finish, a pair of third places finishes and has not finished outside the top-six.
“I think we have been getting better and better at SPS,” said Fenhaus. “I really think we are closing in on a win, so we just have to work hard all night long and get better and we will be alright.”
Friday will mark Fenhaus’ first trip to Madison International Speedway this year.
“We haven’t gotten a win yet this year, so I think everywhere we go we really have to battle hard and focus on what we do best every time we go to the track,” said Fenhaus. “There’s going to be a lot of good guys at Madison, so we will have to be on top of our game.”
Qualifying takes place at 6:00pm on Thursday at State Park Speedway on Friday with racing at 7:00pm. On Friday night qualifying will be at 5:30pm with racing at 7:00pm. Fans who can’t make it to Madison can watch live on Speed51.com.
