(West Salem, WI) April 16th, 2011 – Officials of the LaCrosse Fairgrounds Speedway announced today that they have immediately terminated the contract with the staff weather predictor- a Groundhog. The termination came shortly after a snow storm forced the cancellation of today’s open practice session, the first scheduled test of the 2011 season. “He predicted an early spring, and today clearly shows he was way off the mark,” stated Speedway Director of Personnel Jim Murphy. “However, we will reconsider reinstating his job when the weather clears up for next week’s season opener” added Murphy.

The 2011 season will commence next Saturday (April 23rd), as Budweiser presents the Kwik Trip NASCAR Late Models, North Country Contractors Sportsmen, United Auto Supply Thunderstox and the Volden Construction Outlawz. Gates open at 6PM and the fun will start at 7:30.
