Zeb Wise scores Kramer Kup crown at Selinsgrove worth $10,000

SELINSGROVE, PA – Angola, Indiana’s Zeb Wise put it all together on Sunday night at Selinsgrove Speedway in Selinsgrove, Pennsylvania, not only helping the Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 score another triumph in Pennsylvania Posse Country, but the Rudeen Racing ace nailed down a $10,000 top prize in the process, solidifying his fifth All Star victory of the season, this one commemorating National Sprint Car Hall of Famer, Kramer Williamson. Wise, now with nine-career All Star wins to his credit, led all 30, non-stop circuits of the annual Kramer Kup, battling ahead relatively unscathed while keeping Brent Marks and Danny Dietrich at bay. The Kramer Kup triumph – scored from the pole – was Wise’s first-ever victory at the Selinsgrove halfmile.

Doing his best to chase down Wise but ultimately coming up short, Brent Marks finished second at Selinsgrove, followed Dietrich, two-time All Star champion, Tyler Courtney, and Justin Peck.

“Man, I don’t know what to say. I’m usually not very good on half mile tracks,” Wise, ace of the Rudeen Racing/Rayce Rudeen Foundation/No. 26 sprint car, stated. “This is really special not only for me, but for the entire team. We’ve worked so hard to improve our program on bigger tracks and I think we’re finally where we need to be. We had a Ford in tonight and she ran great. This one seemed to hit harder than any other we’ve had, and we thought having the Ford in would give us the best chance.”

Brent Marks started his charge to second from eighth on the grid, working his way to fourth by lap five, then sliding Tyler Courtney for third on lap ten. The “Myerstown Missile” inched his way further through the field and eventually captured second on lap 16, this time overtaking the “Madman” Kerry Madsen with a slider in turn four. Despite all attempts late, Marks was unable to catch the Rudeen Racing No. 26.

Dietrich’s path to third started from 13th; he was the evening’s Hard Charger.

The Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will continue their 2023 campaign with a doubleheader weekend in the Wolverine State, set to visit Tri-City Motor Speedway in Auburn, Michigan, and Butler Speedway in Quincy, Michigan, on Friday and Saturday, August 25-26. The Michigan double will award a total winner’s share reaching $15,500; $7,000 on Friday and $8,500 on Saturday.
