(West Salem, WI) – Despite threatening skies, fans had the opportunity to check out the thrills and spills on Saturday night’s Wisconsin Lottery Smash-O-Rama at the LaCrosse Fairgrounds Speedway. A mid-event rain shower did not send fans home, as they wanted to see, and got to see all the great stunts and destruction that they had hoped for.

The night started with stunt man, Thomas Farra, who drove right through another car, sending it flipping into the air in the Steel Wall crash. But Farra’s night was not over. Later in the night, at top speed, Farra took another stunt car and raced off of a ramp directly through a large camper. Not once, not twice, but three times he went through after the fans had called for more.

Back in 2007, Jim Burns of Rockford, Illinois brought out his first ever monster truck, Mechanical Mischief, to the La Crosse Speedway. He has since returned every year, crunching and smashing cars on the front straight. After several air born jumps over the waiting cars, Burns brought the crowd to their feet with several full straightaway wheelies and several 360 spins.

Joe Beavers and Ryan Suchanac brought their Vertical Mischief stunt motorcycles for the 7th straight year and once again, the cameras and video recorders were centered on the front straight away. Doing tricks in front of fans with wide open eyes, both did what they are known nationwide wide for, stunts! Ryan set a Guinness Book of World Records earlier this year with a wheelie on ice at 109.5 miles an hour. The La Crosse fans warmly welcomed them back.

The Ant’s Complete Pest Control Hornets were the featured racing division of the night, with Nate Towner and Sammy Linnehan driving to victory lane in heat races. When it came time for the Wisconsin Lottery 15 lap feature, the rains came down but the racing got intense. In the end, Jackson Broer, in his third Hornet race ever, earned first feature win.

Next Saturday night, Altra Federal Credit Union presents the return of NASCAR Whelen All-American Series action. The Late Models, Sportsmen, Thunderstox and Street Stocks will all take to the center stage. Plus, fans will get to see a Crazy Figure-8 Race.
