One driver has dominated the Malvern Bank Super Late Model Series posting five series championships including the last four years in a row along with a series leading 68 features wins. “The Marquette Missile” Kyle Berck of Marquette has been a major factor in Midwest racing for over a quarter of century. In a career that started in 1980 in go-karts and moved to Late Models in 1985, Berck has been behind the set of a race car for 37 years.
His resume features over 400 career wins, 15 track championships and several regional and national championships.
