A trio of former Luxemburg Speedway promoters and a veteran driver still giving the youngsters a run for their money weekly will be inducted into Luxemburg Speedway’s Hall of Fame at the third-mile clay oval Friday night, August 18.
Tri Star Promotions members Kelly and Debbie Hafeman and Ralph Aschenbrenner along with Green Bay’s Jerry Muenster will be ushered into the tracks Hall of Fame. Tri Star Promotions promoted the weekly racing at Luxemburg Speedway for 13 seasons from 1989 through 2001. During their tenure the track boasted some of the highest weekly IMCA car counts nationwide.
Kelly Hafeman himself is a former IMCA modified champion. Muenster was the Luxemburg Speedway track champion in 1968. Despite being two full generations older than most of his on track foes the soon-to-be 76-year-old Muenster, who is the last holdover driver still competing from the track’s coupe days, still competes weekly at Luxemburg Speedway in an IMCA modified.
The stories of Tri Star Promotions, along with Jerry Muenster and his son Eddie Muenster’s racing careers will be featured in motorsports author Joe Verdegan’s third book “Life In The Past Lane – The Next Generation” which will be released December 2, 2017 at Titletown Brewing in Green Bay.
