40 Entries For Joe Shear Classic

OREGON, Wis. — Forty cars are now entered for Sunday’s Joe Shear Classic 200 at Madison Int’l Speedway.

The event will be the second race of the ASA STARS National Tour and will also be part of the ASA Midwest Tour.

The two latest entries came from Wisconsin driver Joseph Scholze and Florida ace Tony Elrod.

Scholze is a former weekly late model winner at LaCrosse Fairgrounds Speedway and Jefferson Speedway. He made his first appearance with the ASA Midwest Tour at Slinger Super Speedway on April 23.

Elrod will be making the trip from Lecanto, Fla., to take part in the Joe Shear Classic. He has ventured outside the Sunshine State for the first time in 2023, but this will be the first time he makes an appearance in the state of Wisconsin.

An impressive list of drivers are headed to Madison Int’l Speedway next week. The names on the entry list encompass a wide range of talent, from local favorites such as Ty Majeski, Andrew Morrissey, and Justin Mondeik, to national stars such as Bubba Pollard, Stephen Nasse, and Casey Roderick, who won the ASA STARS Tour opener at Florida’s Five Flags Speedway in March.

Drivers from 13 states are entered in the event that will be live-streamed by SPEED SPORT affiliate
