2016 LaCrosse Speedway Schedule Announced

January 26, 2016 (West Salem, WI.) – Race fans and race teams can now breathe a bit easier, knowing that spring is just a short eight weeks away.   With the approach of spring comes the announcement of the LaCrosse Fairgrounds Speedway’s 2016 event schedule.  
 
LaCrosse Speedway will again for the 28th consecutive season be a NASCAR-Sanctioned Weekly Racing facility, in part of the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series.  The schedule will kick off for the second year in a row during the afternoon, on Sunday, April 24th with the running of the ‘Budweiser Frostbuster’ Race.  It includes a full program of Late Models, Sportsmen, Thunderstox, Hornets and Outlawz on the 5/8th and 1/4th mile paved ovals.
 
“It’s been a gradual transition from the traditional 22-week racing schedule of the 1980’s and 1990’s.  Again in 2016, at the fans’ and drivers’ requests, we made a few adjustments in order to keep both the fans and race teams happy and entertained,” commented Dave Noelke, from the Speedway’s Marketing Department.
 
Saturday night weekly racing will commence on May 14th and will run through August 20th.  “By better utilizing the seasonal days available to us with warmer and better weather, fans and teams can enjoy the action packed events. We have fine tuned our schedule to reduce the potential of racing on cold days.”  Most notable changes this year includes Weekly Racing on all four June Saturdays, while the Smash-O-Rama moves to Saturday, July 2nd.  The night before (July 1st) will include a Friday Night Super Late Model Special event, featuring the TUNDRA Super Late Model Series. 
 
“We are excited to continue implementing our Social Media platform this season, as it has helped gain new fans in recent years.  Although anyone can find out nearly any information they want at any time through the use of their cellular phones, that doesn’t replace the human need to take in a live experience from time to time.  We all like to be entertained, and we invite anyone in the tri-state area to take in a race event this season.  The sounds of the cars, the smells of the tires and race fuel, and concession burger grill, combined with the sights of all the cars speeding by are unparalleled by any other type of sporting event,” concluded Noelke. 
 
The popular Eve of Destruction will be held on Saturday, September 10th, while the Midwest’s oldest and most prestigious short track asphalt racing event, the 47th Oktoberfest Race Weekend, will conclude the racing season, October 6th-9th and will feature the ARCA Midwest Tour and it’s championship race.
 
In addition to the oval racing will be the popular “Street Drags,” on Friday nights. The Street Drags schedule will remain similar to the past several years, with seven events.
