Antigo racer drives with the loyal help of a sponsor Submitted: 08/29/2015

EAGLE RIVER - Dylan Seis from Antigo won the ProAm competition Saturday at the ATV/UTV Derby World Championship at the AMSOIL Eagle River Derbytrack.

He's only 15 years old.

"You forget everything else that is going on, you realize what's in front of you and what you're doing," said Seis.

The Antigo champion travels around the country to race four wheelers. He enjoyed the short trip up to Eagle River.

"Pretty good the track was really rough in the corners but other than that it was a decent track for the first year," said Seis.


Seis wouldn't have the opportunity to race across the country if it wasn't for his sponsors. VP Racing Fuels has backed up the 15 year old.

"Help these guys out the best we can," VP Racing's Fuels J.P. Ramington said. "I mean it cost a lot of money to go racing. You know these guys need all the help they can get."

VP Racing Fuels is continuing to grow in North Central Wisconsin. It has stations in Antigo and Gleason.
"It's awesome to see Dyli race," Ramington said. "He used to watch me when I raced as a go and he's actually got some of my old quads yet."

"Dylan's very good," Ramington said. "There's a lot of potential with Dylan. He's one of the upcoming stars."

PARK FALLS - The Chequamegon Screaming Eagles football team made the playoffs last year, but their team looks very different from last year's.

The team had 13 seniors graduate.

That means many of the returning players haven't gotten a lot of playing time, but coaches say their philosophy hasn't changed.

"Our program is founded on three words, and that's 'Expect to Win,'" says Head Coach Scott Herbst. "We have a sign that says it, we carry it everywhere we go, and our expectations are that and our number one goal will always be playoffs."

Chequamegon opened their schedule last week with a tough conference matchup against Edgar.

They lost 46-0, but coaches say that's just the way they like it.

"Some people say 'boy, it would be nice to open up against somebody else,' but for me, I'd rather open up against Edgar," says Herbst. "I really would. It gives you a really good gauge right away, and it gets it out of the way so you can focus on the rest of your schedule."

The Screaming Eagles will play Rib Lake/Prentice this Friday night.

RIB MOUNTAIN - The AMA Pro Flat Track Series visited Rib Mountain Sunday for 2nd Wisconsin Oh Fest.

The races were held at Wausau 525 but canceled due to rain. 

Pros in the AMA Pro Flat Track series started at a young age.

"When I was three years old my dad got me on a dirt bike before a bicycle," New York's Ryan Wells said. "I could ride that before I even got on a bicycle."

"I've been racing since 1991," Wisconsin's Jesse Janisch. "I started racing when I was four years old for my parents."

"My dad was always into motorcycles and so was my mom," Illinois's Rob Pearson said. "Flat track racing was pretty popular in central Illinois where I'm from and started going to local races and just never stopped."

MILWAUKEE - The Milwaukee Bucks have selected UNLV shooting guard Rashad Vaughn with the No. 17 overall pick in Thursday's NBA draft.

 Vaughn is coming off a season-ending injury to his left knee but averaged 17.8 points per game in 23 games as a freshman, shooting 43.9 percent from the floor and 38.3 percent from 3-point range.

MILWAUKEE - The Milwaukee Bucks made a draft-night deal for a veteran point guard, trading UCLA shooting guard Norman Powell and a first-round pick in 2017 to the Toronto Raptors in exchange for backup guard Greivis Vasquez.

 The Bucks finalized the deal shortly after they made Powell the 46th overall pick in the second round Thursday night.

 General manager John Hammond says the Bucks have always liked Vasquez, who is 28 and has playoff experience.

 Hammond said he wasn't hesitant to part with the 2017 first-round, which was acquired from the Los Angeles Clippers in a previous trade.
