$5,400 Purse for Corn Belt Clash at Lafayette County Speedway
Ralph Fryer Memorial Race Planned for Saturday, August 8th
DARLINGTON, Wisconsin (March 24, 2015) – Corn Belt Clash and Lafayette County Speedway released plans for the Ralph Fryer Memorial Race for Saturday, August 8th with a $5,400 purse.
The fourth annual Corn Belt Clash race in Darlington will be one for the record books as the largest race ever to run at Lafayette County Speedway (LCS) in it’s 65 year history. The three-eights mile dirt oval, located in southwest Wisconsin, will host Corn Belt Clash and Season Championship with its four weekly classes plus the open late model series on the second Saturday in August.
This race will recognize Ralph Fryer, long-time race engine builder and late model team owner. Ralph passed away on January 4, 2015 in his hometown of Freeport, Ill. He was a late model owner for some of the best drivers in the Midwest, most recently helping his grandson Mike on the Corn Belt Clash circuit.
“The Fryer family contacted me about wanting to hold this race at Lafayette County Speedway in Ralph’s memory, and it only seemed fitting to make the first place winnings $5,400 in honor of Ralph’s car number, 54,” explains Cam Granger, Corn Belt Clash Owner. “Many late model drivers are already committing to race this night, especially since Corn Belt Clash offers another large purse the Friday night before in West Union, Iowa. We are excited to head back to Darlington for a fourth consecutive year and put on the best show to-date at the track.”
