Larry Detjens Memorial Race this weekend

Posted:

The 32nd annual Larry Detjens Memorial Race will be held this weekend with Newsline 9 as the sponsor.  
This is the second year the race is a two day event. Three divisions race tonight and tomorrow hosts a 150 lap race.
This year is also the third season since the race was brought back to Wausau from Plover. 

 

"We thought nothing but to bring it back to where the home track was for my dad," said Margo Detjens, the daughter of Larry Detjens.  "And where the home fans watched him race on a weekly basis.  It's really exciting to know that people thought so highly of him."  

"Just having it here, just makes it so much better, this is where he lived and where he enjoyed staying," said good friend and brother-in-law Ron Wimmer.
