Andrew Morrissey’s victory in last Sunday’s Joe Shear Classic at Madison International Speedway was his third victory in the ARCA Midwest Tour presented by SCAG Power Equipment. The win provided a big pay day and contingency bonuses.

The Deforest, Wisconsin driver held off Dan Fredrickson and Ty Majeski for the victory in a race that many are heralding as one of the best short track races in quite some time on social media. The 200-lap race with the controlled pit stop format created many different battles and lead changes throughout the race.

The fans in attendance enjoyed battles for the lead between Travis Sauter and Bubba Pollard as well as a classic lead swap back and forth between Rich Bickle Jr. and Fredrickson. A couple of late cautions left fans wondering if Morrissey could hold off Fredrickson and Majeski until the checkered flag, creating an edge of the seat excitement that is well known in ARCA Midwest Tour competition.

For his victory, Morrissey picked up $5,000 for the win along with a new Millermatic 125 Mig Welder from Miller Electric, $100 from SCAG Power Equipment for being the top Wisconsin driver, and a $200 fuel card from Tobacco Outlet plus Grocery for “Smokin’ the Competition.”

Fredrickson received an Allstar Performance $100 certificate for his second-place finish and a $100 VDL certificate for being the fast qualifier.

For his third-place finish, Ty Majeski received a $50 Bassett Wheel certificate, a Clevite $100 certificate, and an Al-Kul Free Radiator Flush certificate.

A full list of contingency awards appears below.

Along with the contingency awards, the ARCA Midwest Tour gave each Touring Star over $5 per mile traveled along with over $2,000 in bonuses and rookie incentives.

The stars and cars of the ARCA Midwest Tour presented by SCAG Power Equipment are now getting ready for the Cabin Fever 100 on Saturday, May 20th at State Park Speedway in Wausau, Wisconsin. A track that is well known for great side-by-side battles between the visiting Touring Stars and the best Super Late Model drivers that compete around Central Wisconsin. An area that brought us legendary drivers like Dick Trickle, Tom Reffner, Marv Marzofka, and Dave Marcis.

This event will pay $625 to start the Cabin Fever 100 and $3,000 to the winner.
