BURLINGTON, Wis. -- Three-time American Speed Association and one-time ARTGO Champion Kevin Cywinski has entered the July Spectacular 100 this Saturday at I-94 Raceway in Sauk Centre, MN. He will be competing in the sixth event of the 2008 ASA Kwik Trip Midwest Tour presented by ECHO Outdoor Power Equipment season.
Cywinski, the 1995 ARTGO and 1997, 2003, and 2004 ASA Champion, will be competing in his second ASAMT event. He competed in the inaugural event last season at Elko Speedway where he came home with a 12th place finish.
In his ASA career, Cywinski collected 15 wins and over 100 top-ten finishes in 142 starts. He was also the Rookie of the Year in 1996.
He will be one of the many Midwest Touring Stars competing this Saturday night at I-94 Raceway, an ASA Member Track.
Going into this Saturday night, Dan Fredrickson currently holds a 69-point lead over Donny Reuvers in the 2008 Championship standings. Reuvers will be looking for his third ASAMT win in a row while Fredrickson is looking to return to victory lane.
