June 27, 2017 (NORTHFIELD, Minn.) – Cole Anderson and Dan Fredrickson have joined forces again, this time for the TUNDRA Racing Series at La Crosse Speedway in Round Two Powered by Wisconsin Potatoes. The race this Friday marks the first of four events the two will partner for this season.
Anderson started off his 2017 campaign competing in the World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing and three Southern Super Series events, including the Short Track US Nationals at Bristol Motor Speedway. The Minnesota driver earned three top-ten finishes while touring the southern states, but now returns to his Midwest racing routes with Fredrickson.
“I’m really excited about working with Cole for a few races this year,” said Fredrickson. “We always had great success in the past and now he has more experience to go along with his natural talent.”
Anderson began driving for Fredrickson in 2014 and the two moved from Limited Late Models to Super Late Models in the span of a year. Their last race together was the Dick Trickle 99 in 2015 at La Crosse Speedway, where Anderson timed in second in a field of more than 50 cars and went on to earn an eighth place finish. Now the Minnesota duo hope to pick up right where they left off this weekend.
“Obviously it’s been a few years since Cole and I were at La Crosse together, but we put together a solid run last time we were there,” said Fredrickson. “I’m confident in Cole’s abilities and I know we can put together a solid effort this weekend.”
Anderson is no stranger to the TUNDRA Racing Series either. In 2015 he made six starts and recorded two top-five finishes and three top-ten finishes.
“The TUNDRA Series brings a lot of solid competition and a high car count,” said Fredrickson. “I think this is the perfect race for us to kick off our schedule and really gives us the opportunity to see where we stack up in a talented field of cars.”
Getting back to the Midwest not only gives Anderson a chance to race closer to home and visit tracks where he saw success a few years ago, but also gives him a more hands on experience with his No. 97 Toyota.
“Cole has been at the shop working on his cars,” said Fredrickson. “He really wants to learn more about the cars themselves and not just drive them. I think that is very admirable.”
TUNDRA will be joined by the Midwest Truck Series and UMA/Midwest Modifieds this Friday at LaCrosse Fairgrounds Speedway. Qualifying begins and fan gates open at 6 P.M. Racing begins at 7:30.
LaCrosse Fairgrounds Speedway is located at N4985 Cty Rd M in West Salem. For more information visit www.lacrossespeedway.com.
