OREGON, Wis. – Matt Kenseth, fresh off his victory in the Slinger Nationals last week at Slinger Super Speedway, will compete in the Howie Lettow Classic 100 at Madison Int’l Speedway on Aug. 16.
Kenseth, the 1994 track champion at Madison Int’l Speedway, will compete for the $5,000 top prize against the top ARCA Midwest Tour super late model drivers in the same No. 8 SUPERSEAL car that he drove to victory in the Slinger Nationals.
This will mark the first appearance by Kenseth at his home track since winning a 100-lap contest in 2014, his 27th career feature win at the high banked paved oval.
“I’m looking forward to getting back on the track at Madison. It’s my home track,” Kenseth said. “I have a lot of great memories there and I’m hoping to make some more. I will never forget the first time my dad brought me there to watch a super late model race. It was the biggest, fastest track I had been to at the time and I was in awe when I heard and saw the super lates flying around there.
“To this day I get excited thinking about the races I have watched and the races that I have won there. There’s nothing like going home.”
A VIP Meet and Greet Party will take place allowing fans the opportunity to attend a Q&A session with the 2003 NASCAR Cup Series champion, get up to two items autographed and have a professional picture taken with Kenseth.
The VIP Experience will include a custom ticket good for the VIP area and general admission seating, water and soft drinks as well as the autograph and photo opportunities listed above.
