Sommers to open season at Golden Sands
PLOVER, Wis. — Gabe Sommers Racing is excited to announce its first race is set for Memorial Day at Golden Sands Speedway.
Gabe Sommers and the No. 15 Toyota super late model will enter the Dick Trickle Memorial race at the third-mile bowl in Plover on Monday, May 25. It will be GSR’s first event since traveling to North Carolina in early March.
The 99-lap feature named for the Wisconsin racing legend wasn’t intended to be the kickoff event of Sommers’ midwest schedule, but the reigning Midwest ARCA Tour Rookie of the Year is happy to have the chance to run at his home track. Sommers won a TUNDRA Series race last September last time he raced at Golden Sands.
“Not being able to race has hurt a little bit, but we’re going to get acclimated to the car and get ready for Monday,” Sommers said.
Sommers, GSR crew chief Chris Wimmer and the rest of the team worked hard in the shop during the Covid-19 lockdown to ensure everything is ready to go.
