The Great Northern Sportsman Series was created to give the local sportsman racer an opportunity to race against the best drivers from other tracks at different tracks throughout the region. The schedule would consist of 5-6 races in a non-conflicting format so as to not interrupt the regular season goals for the competitors and tracks. As incentive for the competitors to support local racing, part of the point system would take each racers top feature finishes at their hometrack and add them as bonus points to the points earned in the Great Northern Sportsman Series. One feature for each feature for each feature they run in the series.

Great Northern Sportsman Series Director Greg Oliver announced today that Dean’s Satellite of Sparta Wisconsin has signed on to become presenting sponsor of the second year racing series. Effective immediately, the series is now known as the ‘Great Northern Sportsman Series presented by Dean’s Satellite.’

Dean’s Satellite is a local DIRECTV, DISH and Exede Satellite Internet Retailer based out of Sparta, WI with a second location in La Crosse, WI. Dean’s Satellite was named the 2011 DIRECTV National Dealer of the Year, topping over 2500 stores nationwide to claim that honor.

“As we continue to expand our service area, partnering with Great Northern Sportsman Series just made sense for us to help get our name out, while also supporting a growing series,” stated Dean’s Satellite owner Dean Pennel. “We are excited to see all the fans, teams and competitors out at the track in 2014.”


Dean’s Satellite plans on having a presence at each Great Northern Sportsman Series event in 2014. Look for the Dean’s Satellite booth on the concourse at tracks along the Great Northern Sportsman Series trail. Representatives will be on site, ready to talk with race fans and potential customers while showing off the great programming provided by Dean’s Satellite.
