Goede Throws Hat in Ring, Ready to Collect $10,000 Sunday after All Nighter Friday
Oregon, WI- Two weeks ago, Jacob Goede went nose to nose with Steve Carlson, Ty Majeski and Nick Panitzke in a wild finish at LaCrosse Fairgrounds Speedway. This Sunday May 5, the five time and defending Elko Speedway Champion will set his sights on winning Madison International Speedway’s Joe Shear Classic 200. Goede was originally planning to compete, but a few setbacks in the shop forced him to withdraw his entry. This afternoon, that all changed as Goede and his crew made the decision to pull an all-nighter to get his mount ready to go.
Goede has won a number of big races in his career, including the 2007 ASA Late Model Series event at Bristol Motor Speedway and the Vintage World Championship Snowmobile event in Eagle River, now the NASCAR Minnesota State Champion will be gunning for the one of a kind Joe Shear Classic Trophy manufactured by Wehr’s Machine.
