Did you know about this?

Brothers Nate and Dan Michonski have been nearly dominant in the IMCA stock car division, but did you know that their grandfather "Shorty" Michonski was once a front-running racer in the Chicagoland area?

Shorty was one of the top racers in the 1950s and '60s at tracks such as O'Hare Stadium and Soldier Field.

Mitch Stankowski is fifth in the standings in the IMCA stock car class, but did you know that his father, Lester Stankowski, raced throughout central Wisconsin in the 1960s and '70s against the likes of Dick Trickle, Marv Marzofka and Jim Sauter?

"It's a good start. We wanted to look at some kids, so it's good we got a lot of them in there," said Bonduel coach James Westrich. "It's a good first game of the season."
