(West Salem, WI – September 3, 2011) USG Sheetrock may be able to cover most American walls with their fine product, but Mother Nature covered the La Crosse Fairgrounds Speedway with walls of rain Saturday.
The rain was coming down earlier in the day and radars showed clear skies for the USG Sheetrock night at the races, but on-and-off showers in the afternoon deterred track drying efforts and forced track officials to call the races ending the regular season one night early.
But, there is more racing action to come. The 42nd annual Oktoberfest Race Weekend is Oct. 6th thru 9th, so be sure to mark your calendars. Thursday, Oct. 6th is championship night for the Kwik Trip NASCAR Late Model, North Country Contractors Sportsmen and the United Auto Supply Thunderstox divisions. Friday, Oct. 7th feature the Super Late Models, Super Sportsmen and Area Sportsmen. Saturday, Oct. 8th the Big-8 Late Models will race along with ASA Midwest Tour Preliminaries.
