Gondik Law Speedway Completes Successful Season Opener

Created: May 23, 2020 06:56 PM

Gondik Law Speedway has wrapped up their opening week in Superior.

The Wisconsin track was allowed to open last week, but they implemented health and safety precautions to welcome back fans, staff and drivers.  

Fans had their temperature taken before entering the stadium and were asked to use hand sanitizer and social distance in the stands.

"It looked like a pretty good turnout. You could tell by looking in the stands that everybody kind of kept their space from everybody, you could see the individual groups which was good. In the pits you can see that everybody is spaced out nicely and I think everybody is trying to do their part just to get back to doing what we love," said modified driver Jody Bellefeuille

Thursday and Friday the speedway hosted the Minnesota Modified Nationals, traditionally held in Ogilvie.

Duluth's Corey Jorgenson finished first in the pure stock division and Iron River's Andrew Hanson topped the street stock division.

Finishing second in heat four, Duluth's Jody Bellefeuille earned eighth in the modifieds division.

Gondik Law Speedway plans to continue races on Friday nights unless the state of the COVID-19 pandemic changes.
