HIBBING, Minn. (July 23) — Polesitter Jake Redetzke of Eau Claire, Wis., led all 100 laps of the third annual Governor's Cup on Saturday at Hibbing Raceway to collect $10,000 and the richest victory of his career.
Redetzke fended off Adam Hensel of Barron, Wis., and survived a challenge from Brady Smith of Solon Springs, Wis., to earn one of the richest paydays of the year for WISSOTA-sanctioned Late Models. | Slideshow | Prelims
