The 2021-2022 ProStar Cup Tour has been filled with outstanding racing action, bouts with Mother Nature, and even some controversary. But after six of seven rounds, the final race in Beausejour will ultimately determine the season long champion.

A limited field raced in Round 1 at the beautiful oval in Beausejour, MB. Tour veteran Gunnar Sterne took the Round 1 victory beating Blaine Stephenson and Calvin Cook to the checkered flag. It would be the first of five straight podium appearances for Sterne, the current point leader.

Round 2 started in Ironwood, MI, but Mother Nature influenced the completion. With cold temperatures and calm winds, severe snow dust caused the final to be postponed. It was ultimately held at the Wausau 525 facility where a last lap pass pushed Blaine Stephenson in front of Gunnar Sterne for the win. John Henke made his first podium of the season finishing third.

The third stop of the 21-22 Tour was incorporated into the Friday Night Thunder program in Eagle River, WI. Due to scheduling issues during the first two rounds, Round 3 winner Matt Goede made his initial appearance for the Tour taking home the Friday night victory. He was joined on the podium by second place Gunnar Sterne, and third place Blaine Stephenson.

Round 4 found the Tour at the popular Wausau 525 facility in Wausau, WI. Saturday morning, the Ironwood round was completed with Sunday featuring the ProStar Cup Tour stop number 4. After very competitive qualifying rounds, the final found Matt Goede winning his second Tour stop in a row followed by Gunnar Sterne, and podium newcomer Tom Olson. Blaine Stephenson fell victim to a blown belt and finished 9th.

Round 5 and 6 formed a doubleheader at the Fire on Ice event in Weyauwega, WI with Friday under the lights. Friday night was impacted by a lengthy crash delay in the F-500 class, and by the time the final was up, temperature and snow dust were an issue again. The final was run in two sections of 7 laps each. A much-scrutinized start and limited laps, led to much Friday evening and Saturday pit talk. In the end, Matt Goede scored his third win in a row followed by Blaine Stephenson and Gunnar Sterne. Saturday’s race day was relatively normal with the final finishing order being Blaine Stephenson, Matt Goede and Tom Olson. Sterne finished fourth and just barely missed the podium.

Based on the current point totals, the Top 10 of the 21-22 ProStar Cup Tour are as follows: Gunnar Sterne, Blaine Stephenson, Matt Goede, Tom Olson, Justin Peterson, Griffin Lepak, John Henke, Luke Olson, Matt Bennett and Fred Manke. With 130 points on the line and $5000 in purse money, Round 7 at the CPTC in Beausejour, MB on March 5th is set up to be a huge race. You won’t want to miss it.
