Local Boy Makes River Cities Fan’s Proud
Its no mystery to the loyal race fans who religiously attend the weekly race program at River Cities Speedway in Grand Forks, ND: Local boy Mark Dobmeier is something special, I told a buddy of mine that it was just a matter of time before Mark Dobmeier made a big splash on the national scene. That splash was finally heard last weekend in Wilmot, Wisconsin as Mark Dobmeier won his first World of Outlaws Race. Mover over Donny Schatz there is another North Dakotan ready to make a move to the big time.
The past summer Mark has been dominating and its exciting to watch him race his number 13 sprint car. This past July Mark gave the local fans hope that the big boys would go down in defeat, Mark wooed the fans with a taste of things to come when, he finished 4th in the A feature against the NST boys, beating the likes of Shane Stewart, Jason Meyers, Steve “the King” Kinser, Dean Jacobs, Paul McMahan, Jason Sides, Brian Paulus and Kerry Madsen. NST Results From July. Earlier in the evening Mark had finished a strong second in the dash losing only to Danny ”the Dude Lasoski.
Mark has been nothing short of spectacular this summer picking up 20 wins (by no means a small feat on any racing circuit) between Grand Forks, ND and Huset’s Speedway in Brandon South Dakota, add win number 20 at Wlimot, Speedway in Wisconsin. No short order comparing some of the competition he has ran against. Link to Dirt Motor Sports It seems Dobmeier’s time has come.
