See Freighting Rollover Crash at Halvor Lines Speedway in Proctor
Last night was the racing of the 50th Silver 1000 race at Halvor Lines Speedway in Proctor and things got scary when one of the cars did several flips before coming to a rest.
The accident was shared on Superior's Gondik Law Speedway's Facebook page, Billy Kendall III was driving the car and thankfully he is OK after rolling over several times on the dirt track and severally damaging the racecar.
The races continued and Justin Froemming was the winner in the WISSOTA Modified division, and Jimmy Mars won his third Silver 1000 in the WISSOTA's Late Model Challenge Series! I have no idea what any of that means, but congrats to the winners and I'm glad to hear Kendall III is ok.
Thankfully safety is priority one with the racetracks, the crews, the officials, and the drivers, and that dedication to safety clearly paid off in this case. Both winners of the Silver 1000 races won a bottle of Champagne, a Silver Cup, and $1,000 paid in Silver Dollars.

Here is the video of the crash, you might want to turn your volume down when you watch, there are no racing sounds but a loud hum or buzz in the video could startle you.
