Sturgeon Bay’s very-own race car driver Bernie Reinhardt has not missed a race since the Clinton Administration. Much like Cal Ripken Jr on the diamond Bernie has his streak on the racetrack. The streak is up 386 consecutive races that started way back in 1993, and he’s planning to keep that streak alive during the 2019 season at The Hill Raceway. Bernie has won 4 league championships in 3 different type cars including back-to-back championships in 2012 and 2013 in the sport-mod division. He only races at The Hill.
The Hill Raceway opened back up in 2017 by a group called PKS3 and the reopening has been a great success. As other racetracks all around the country have struggled to stay open recently, The Hill has thrived for the 2017 and 2018 seasons, and look for an even better year in 2019. PKS3 member John Sternard explains that most of the members of PKS3 are former drivers themselves and how that helps them run the track.
Drivers have a meeting on January 5 where pit spots will be available to purchase. The first race of the 2019 season will be on May 18.
