RIB MOUNTAIN (WAOW)--Despite suffering a massive loss, representatives for Wimmer Racing say the Miller Lite Larry Detjens Memorial 105 race is still on at State Park Speedway, Thursday.

Tuesday afternoon, Ron and Joan Wimmer's home on Hummingbird Road was destroyed by fire.

The fire destroyed a car inside the garage and quickly spread to the rest of the house, damaging another car parked outside. Investigators are still searching for a cause.

Ron and his son Scott own State Park Speedway.

Scott races in NASCAR'S Nationwide series. His brother, Chris, competes on the ASA circuit.

The Detjens Race begins at 7:15 PM Thursday.
