Derks Racing News

June 7th 2009 Hollandtown, WI
A quarter of the way through the season.

First off I have to thank my family for putting up with me the last 2 months. I'll make it up to you when we go on Vacation.

Second I have to thank my sponsors and since I updated last, I picked up a few new ones.
Subway Restaurant in Kaukauna, WI is the official sandwich of Derks Racing. This creates a battle of the Sub shops as Travis Grissman is sponsored by the competing sandwich company in Kaukauna. I was also a former employee of the store.
Best Craft Furniture is my employer and has agreed to let me sell some overstock Log furniture for sponsorship as well as use their equipment for changing tires.
Natural Touch Taxidermy, owned by Joe Milheiser is the newest taxidermy business in the state. Joe prides himself in his craftsmanship and would love to show you his recent mounts.

Please support these folks and tell them you saw their ads on Derks Racing Online and on the car at the track.

I have been able to make 5 of 6 nights of racing at the Calumet County Speedway in Chilton, WI. So far its been OK. I found out that having a good setup in the car makes it a lot more fun to drive. But then was dissappointed when I blew the engine the second night out. I did put in a backup engine. May 22nd was the first night out with the backup engine. I took 3rd in the heat and 6th in the feature. The night of May 29th I won the heat race and cut a tire in the feature to finish 10th. Currently I sit 10th in points.

Come out to the races and bring some friends!!!
