The Chase Begins!

As we say goodbye to 2012, the local racing community remains strong. Despite significant downturns in other forms of racing and economy in general, most things seem just fine as we get ready to turn the page to 2013. Both at the La Crosse Speedway and the Mississippi Thunder Speedway. But to continue the trend of keeping these local tracks open, it all starts with you.

 
Westby, Arcadia, Black River Falls and up until late last year, Tomah. All closed or are on the border. Why? It could be a number of things. Owners ran out of funding, low car counts, rising operating costs. And.....empty grandstands. Hard, as a race fan, to contribute to a lot of those reasons......but the grandstands are all you. 
 
I applaude Chuck Deery at the La Crosse Speedway and Bob Timm at the Mississippi Thunder Speedway for things they have and are doing to give fans a chance to watch great racing at an affordable price. Family ticket plans, buck nights for food and drink and affordable apparel. 
 
So as you head to your local tracks this year, don't think about what's it's going to cost you. Think about what you have saved and what you ARE saving. Another local race track.
