Here Come The Super Late's!

If you didn't get your racing fix at an area race track this past weekend, The La Crosse Speedway has a huge "bang" for you! Wednesday night it's a first time stop for the Tundra Series Super Late Models. As part of a huge 4th of July celebration, the Tundra Super Late's will bring names usually heard during the famed Oktoberfest race weekend. 
 
Over 35 super late model drivers have signed up to race the famed 5/8th's mile. They will be joined by the La Crosse Sportsmen and Thunderstock. Also on tap, the famous Lights Out Race In Darkness! The night ends with a huge fireworks show. Check out www.lacrossespeedway.com or www.tundrasuperlates.com

Do You Know Where They Rank?

Every now and then I like to dabble in the "where are they at" rankings with local race drivers at the La Crosse Speedway.

I'm not  sure how many people know this, but out of the five divisions that race at La Crosse, three of them are ranked within the NASCAR realms - NASCAR Late Models, Sportsmen and Thunderstocks.

They are not just driving to win a track championship, they are also going for national and state titles, some of which have been accomplished by La Crosse drivers. Here's the breakdown as of June 9.

It Only Takes One

A Kentucky man who scammed more than $11,000 in cash, goods and perks from a kindhearted Fox Valley race car driver last month is in jail after he raised suspicions by trying the scam again. 

 
That was the story this week which outraged probably every race fan, team and driver in the state. More on the story??

Once Again Race Fans Top Mother Nature

A couple of things today.
 
One, kudos to all the race fans that waited out a 40-minute rain delay at the La Crosse Speedway Saturday night.
Can't say the same for the folks at Mississippi Thunder Speedway, as rain washed out their Friday night program after the dirt track had been worked on all week. Forecast shows we could see racing again both Friday and Saturday night.
 
Second, I have not really used my blog to slam or dog on others as some other media outlets like to do when it comes to racing. I do love when others do this though, especially the ones that tell others how they need to drive though they have NEVER DRIVEN A RACE CAR BEFORE!

Rain, Cold doesn't keep too many away

Mother Nature's grip on the weather just won't give up so far in 2013.
Sure the snow is gone, but the cold nights at a race track are surely the main reason attendance is down across Wisconsin and Minnesota.
Of course we just celebrated Memorial weekend and saw many high school graduate students. And La Crosse Speedway held one of two Buck Nights on Saturday night. But for those that showed up at local tracks because you're a diehard kudos to you!
