My first project with my new Saturday Night home; I-96 Speedway is to accumulate the complete list of ALL Past Track Champions from the first season in 1971 up to this past season, 2010.

I do know that the 2010 Track Champions were; UMP Late Models-Eric Spangler, UMP Modifieds-Rich Robinson Jr., UMP Street Stocks-Gary Vandermark, and Four-Cylinders-Dan Reimersma.

If anyone can help out with this project, I'd certainly appreciate it.

List any information you may have in this Wall Post. Also if you do have information, please verify how you got it too.

You can also e-mail me at: mprieur@mph-promotions.com

Thanks.

Almost forgot...The very first race was won by Paul Wiesner in his Berlin 6 Cylinder as he beat out all the big dogs and their V8's.
Thanks Marty Blume

Thanks Marty.

I found some good information on Rick Stout who is an 11-time Track Champion;
Late Models (2009)
Modifieds (2004, 2003, 1997, 1996, 1995, 1994, 1992, and 1991)
Sportsmen (1985, 1984)

Kris Patterson is a Multi-Time Track Champion, still verifying the years.
Denny Anderson, Eric Chant, several others from the 1980s and 1990s, still verifying those years too.

Keep them all coming....

Pretty sure 2005 was.

Late Models: Jeff Roodvoets
Modifieds: Tim Roodvoets

I canít find proof to backup that the year is right so maybe someone else can verify.
You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else.

Keep the information coming. Every little bit helps. Thanks to those who have replied and e-mailed so far....

Most of the 2000s are complete except for a couple of seasons.

I have scattered information from all other seasons. Still Looking for more information from the 1990s, 1980s, and 1970s with regards to Track Champions. Everyone that has contributed so far, THANK YOU!!!!

I know Eric Chant won a few titles in the 1980s and maybe even 1-2 in the early 1990s, just don't have the years.

Kris Patterson has a TON of titles primarily in Late Models, just need to verify ALL of the years. I have some of them verified, but not all....

Rick Stout's titles are all posted in his Hall of Fame Bio with the exception of his 2009 Late Models Championship.

Also drivers like Denny Anderson, Gene Playter, "Big Block" Bob Flinn, Jim Kohn, Jeff Kohn, and several others who raced at I-96 and possible some, or all, have won Track Championships.

Anything anyone has will certainly help....

Again a sincere thanks to all that have sent over information. We're still a little ways away from completing the entire list of ALL-TIME Past Track Champions at I-96 Speedway.

The Goal is have this task Completed by the time the Awards Banquet (Saturday, February 19th) gets here.

Update; Most of the 2000s are complete except for a couple of seasons. I do have some scattered information from all other seasons.

Still Looking for more information primarily from the 1990s, 1980s, and 1970s.

Old Programs are helpful, older issues of the "ORIGINAL" Marc Times Racing News is extremely helpful as well.

One More Time, Thanks to all of those that have contributed so far....
