Three Generations of Mikus Racing Celebrate at Northern Michigan Dragway
Super weather conditions brought out another great showing of racers and fans to Northern Michigan Dragway. Over 170 race entries battled it out Saturday night at TNT Points Event #6.
The Mikus family of racers had possibly their most memorable night of racing in their storied race career.
The night began with third generation racer, Isaac Mikus taking his first ever class win in the tough Advanced Junior division.
Not to be outdone, Isaac's granddad Steve Mikus celebrated the Bracket I class win over none other than Isaac's father, Corey Mikus. With his second straight runner-up finish, Corey moved into first place in the Bracket I points standings, where he has claimed the championship in each of the past two seasons.
NMD will be closed for Father's Day weekend, but will return June 21-23 for the much-anticipated 8th Annual Bowtie Challenge.
Located three miles north of Kaleva on Potter Road, further info for NMD can be found at NorthernMichiganDragway.com or by calling (231)362-3439.
