Honoree of the Month - June 2016
The Southeastern Wisconsin Short Track Hall of Fame, at the Wisconsin Automotive Museum, in Hartford, Wisconsin, is proud to announce its Honoree of the Month for June 2016 is four-time Eastern Wisconsin Stock Car Association winged super modified champion Pete Ostrowski of Troy Center. Pete started his career at age seventeen in a 1960’s style modified at Wilmot Raceway in 1982. From there, and with the guidance of his father Norb, a Hall of Fame car builder, and mentoring of Hall of Fame driver the late Fred Zack, he became one of the greatest modified drivers of any era. His four championships in EWSC tied him with the legendary Etchie Biertzer for most EWSC titles in the modifieds, second only to Hall of Famer Ken Markwardt who captured six titles. Pete won sixty-seven features during his career and also was a 2007 IMCA modified champion at the Manitowoc Expo track. Pete was inducted into the Southeastern Wisconsin Short Track Hall of Fame in November of 2015. He is honored this month with a special display featuring photos, artifacts and other memorabilia chronicling his years in racing.
