Racing Is Back!

The smell of racing fuel, the tastes of concession stands, the crack of a beer pop top and old friends reuniting with one another. Yes, racing is back in Western Wisconsin and it seems as though race fans were needing this for quite some time.

In talking with fans at the La Crosse Speedway and Mississippi Thunder Speedway the past 2 weekends, the opening of local tracks was a welcome sight. Though La Crosse took last weekend off, race fans in Fountain City grabbed their lawn chairs and settled in for a long night of dirt track racing. In it's fifth year now with owner Bob Timm at the reigns, close to 1000 fans packed into the 4 corner track, thanks in part to every dirt track in Minnesota still being snow covered. In the end, several drivers retained their spots from last season while some first place finishes were seen from others. And some ended up with a lot of garage time coming as there were a total of 7 rollovers.

Pure Stocks (12 cars): George Richards. 

600 Mods (12 cars): Don Werner

Street Stocks (14 cars): Cory Kummer

USRA B-Mods (27 cars): Corey Crapser

Super Stocks (16 cars): Shane Sabraski

USRA-A Mods (14 cars): Brandon Davis

Next up for Fountain City, a huge USMTS traveling series stop Friday night and the Iron Man B-mod's. At La Crosse, Saturday nigh, May 4th will see the return of racing with Late Models, Sportsmen, Thunderstocks and Outlawz! Gates open at 6 PM...and the action will start at 7:30.

Support your local race tracks and remember to always bring a friend!
