Xtra Laps Live Radio Show April 21

Slinger Pre-Season Party

(Slinger, WI) The NEW Xtra Laps Radio Show and Slinger Speedway pre-season kickoff party will get the 2010 season going 6 pm, April 21 at the Mineshaft in Hartford. Xtra Laps, a radio show dedicated to local racing and the stories behind the drivers will be broadcast live from the Mineshaft on 92.5 FM WBWI. Dangerous Dan Margetta and John Wiedmann will co-host Xtra Laps each Wednesday from 6pm – 7pm throughout the race season.

Dan Margetta is virtually a walking encyclopedia of racing knowledge. The majority of his knowledge has been picked up while attending short track races which he has been doing since the tender age of 3. Dan has only missed a handful of races at Slinger Speedway since 1990 and has been writing stories for Slinger since 2000. These days Dan attends races at a wide variety of locations like dirt tracks from Cedar Lake to Eldora, and asphalt tracks from Kaukauna to Las Vegas, taking in a race whenever possible. He has been in the radio business with the LTN Hour for over 20 years, working diligently to make sure the show runs well while covering local and national racing.

John Wiedmann has been a motorsports fan ever since first attending races at the Milwaukee Mile as a child. A fan of any type of racing, from slot cars to Formula 1, John is most happy attending a local short track race. In 2001 John created RacingWisconsin.com to give race fans a website to keep up with area motorsports information and results. RacingWisconsin.com has grown and evolved into Xtralaps.com which features expanded motorsports coverage. Along with publishing the websites, John keeps busy with motorsports photography and writing.

The Slinger Speedway pre-season kickoff party will continue after the Xtra Laps radio show ends at 7 pm. Everyone is welcome for bench racing, door prizes, and fun at the Mineshaft in Hartford. www.mineshaftrestaurant.com
