This past month Clarkfield native Mike Jans was recognized at the annual Wissota Auto Racing National Awards Banquet in St. Cloud for his second place finish in the Wissota Street Stock points standings.
This has been the most successful season Jans has posted in Street Stock in his 15 year racing career. Jans won the points chase at both Madison Speedway and at Fiesta City Speedway in Montevideo. In the Wissota point standings Jans finished just 13 points behind points champion Dave Read from Brainerd.
“Last winter we decided to just race Street Stock,” said Jans. “And I guess that worked out pretty well. We didn’t start out the year trying to do as good as we did, but about midway through the season we saw that we had a chance at it and went for it.”
