TUNDRA Super Late Model Series Ready For Action

KAUKAUNA, Wis. — The 2021 TUNDRA Super Late Model Series season featured the closest points battle in the decade-long history of the division and with the start of the new season approaching on May 14, there is anticipation for more excitement. 

In only his second season with the series, Riley Stenjem put together a consistent campaign that saw him win one race and score five top-five finishes, which was enough to hold off four-time TUNDRA Series champion Casey Johnson by just three points.

TUNDRA Series co-owner Matt Panure is fully expecting another great season that will be broadcasted with the series’ new broadcast partner — Pit Row TV.

The return of Stenjem, Johnson and several other series regulars like Justin Mondeik, Jordan Thiel and Brock Heinrich are only adding to the anticipation in Panure’s eyes.

“Although last season’s will be hard to top, I expect to have another incredible championship battle,” Panure said. “There is always someone who jumps into the battle that spices things up and there is potential for us to get to our finale with four or five drivers in the hunt.”

Competitive depth in the TUNDRA Series is not the only thing that has Panure excited about the upcoming season.

Along with increasing the purses once again, the TUNDRA Series will also make its grand return to Norway Speedway. During the most recent venture to the facility in 2014, 37 drivers filed an entry for the event and Panure expects a similar number for the race on July 16.

Now that the TUNDRA Series is back up to six races on the calendar, Panure envisions more growth for the series and hopes to see race fans from Michigan, Wisconsin and the surrounding states pack the grandstands to enjoy everything the tour has to offer.

“We’re looking forward to expanding our reach,” Panure said. “Each year we have steadily increased our overall following and we’re always excited to bring our brand of racing and entertainment to fans. Our racers are like the old school racers of the past; they’re passionate about what they do, are respectful of each other and ultra-competitive.”

An exciting season of on-track action for the TUNDRA Series is set to begin on May 14, where Casey Johnson will look to kickstart his quest for a fifth title by defending his victory from last year at Wisconsin International Raceway.

Pit Row TV, a SPEED SPORT.tv affiliate, will carry the season-opener at Wisconsin and the rest of the six-race schedule for the TUNDRA Series. To subscribe to Pit Row TV, visit PitRow.tv
