Millstadt, IL – The 13th annual Thiel Memorial weekend brings together the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget Series and the Mid-State Equipment Badger Midget Series for the first two of three co-sanctioned events.  The third will be the 34th annual Pepsi Nationals set for July 5th.

Saturday, May 23rd will be the third annual Danni Jo Thiel Memorial, with no cars locking into the Sunday event out of Saturday night’s feature.  Sunday, May 24th will be the 13th annual Sue Thiel Memorial race.   The Badger 600 Micro Series, along with the Illini Racing series will also participate in the two-day Memorial Day weekend event.

Christopher Bell of Norman, Oklahoma took the opening night of the 2014 Thiel Memorial, fending off challenges from fellow Keith Kunz Motorsports teammate, Tanner Thorson.  For the finale, the shoe would be on the other foot as Thorson of Minden, Nevada stole the show, earning his first career POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget Series win and becoming the 137th different feature winner at Angell Park Speedway.
