Halfway Point of the 2022 WABAM Dirt Kings Late Model Tour

Freedom, WI - With several weeks off until the WABAM Dirt Kings Late Model Tour returns to action on Sunday, August 14th at Angell Park Speedway for the King of the Park, let's take a look back at the 2022 WABAM Dirt Kings Late Model Tour season.

The first race of the 2022 WABAM Dirt Kings Late Model Tour was the Spring Thaw in Memory of Larry Colburn at Shawano Speedway on April 22, the 50th race for the WABAM Dirt Kings Late Model Tour with Troy Springborn being crowned King and earning his first WABAM Dirt Kings Late Model Tour victory.

On Friday, May 13th the WABAM Dirt Kings Late Model Tour traveled to Red Cedar Speedway in Menomonie, WI for the first time.  The Tom Steuding Memorial had 24 drivers for the 30-lap A-Main that was caution free, with only four cars on the lead lap at the end of the race. AJ Diemel was crowned King of the Tom Steuding Memorial, his second WABAM Dirt Kings Late Model Tour victory.

Troy Springborn earned his second career WABAM Dirt Kings Late Model Tour victory at Outagamie Speedway and his second win of the 2022 season. Springborn held off Brett Swedberg, Justin Ritchie, Joel Bennett and Lukas Postl.

Jake Timm was crowned King at Mississippi Thunder Speedway for the Stars & Stripes 40 on June 3rd, earning his third WABAM Dirt Kings Late Model Tour victory.  Justin Ritchie finished second, followed by Nick Panitzke, James Giossi and Jimmy Mars.

The Double Header for the WABAM Dirt Kings Late Model Tour was Friday, June 24 at Gravity Park Speedway in Chilton for the King of the Bullring and Saturday, June 25 at Shawano Speedway for the Gehm's club 117 Kings Classic.  Nick Anvelink was crowned King at Gravity Park Speedway, holding off Justin Ritchie, Jim Schmidt, Troy Springborn and Lukas Postl.  The next night, Nick Anvelink was crowned King of the Gehm's Club 117 Kings Classic at Shawano, holding off Troy Springborn, Justin Ritchie, Jim Schmidt and Lukas Postl.
