Already Three Wins for Wanderscheid

Press Release -


DRIFT Racing’s Premier Oval Racer Goes on a Tear

When it comes to Friday Night oval racing, DRIFT Racing’s P.J. Wanderscheid has been all but unbeatable this season.

At the Eagle River World Championship Friday Night Thunder program, Wanderscheid won his heat race and the coveted Champ 440 final in convincing fashion. Better still, the Team Arctic champion was wearing special pink DRIFT Authority race gear that, after his win, he autographed and donated as auction items to the Pink Ribbon Riders (see for more information).

Two days after winning Friday Night Thunder, Wanderscheid finished second in the Champ 440 World Championship final.

“Second place in the World Championships is a solid result,” said the three-time World Champ. “The truth is that we go there to win, which we did convincingly in the Friday Night program but, unfortunately, not in the title event.”

Clearly unsatisfied with anything less than winning, Wanderscheid left Eagle River intent to dominate the rest of the season. In Wausau, Wis., Wanderscheid stamped his authority by handily winning Champ 440.

A week later, in his hometown of Sauk Center, Minn., Wanderscheid claimed the Friday Night Champ Shootout. He was about to back it up with a dominating victory in the Champ 440 final on Sunday when a blown belt on the final lap cost him the win.

“We’ve won our class in three of the four weekends we’ve raced this season,” said Wanderscheid. “We have three or four more races remaining, and it’s my goal to win at each of them.”

See the DRIFT Racing/Team Arctic-sponsored Wanderscheid Race team Feb. 13-14 in Weyauwega, Wis., and Feb. 19-21 in Grey Eagle, Minn. Go to and for  more information.
