NASCAR Racing on Saturday
The action of the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series local stars and cars are hungry to get back on the track as last week’s racing was washed out due to heavy rains.

This Saturday will feature the short trackin’ action of the Kwik Trip NASCAR Late Models, Grand National Sportsmen, United Auto Supply Thunderstox and the ANTS Complete Pest Control Hornets.

It’s LaCrosse Interstate Fair week, and that always means one thing. More Late Model Racing! That’s right. It’s the Fairtime 40 – where the Late Models run in two separate 20 Lap main events.

Pre-race includes the KQYB 98.3FM “Kids Cruiser Night,” where kids age 5-11 are invited to ride in a real stock car around the big 5/8th mile race track! Sign up in advance at the Souvenir Trailer between 6:00 and 6:45. Rides begin immediately after Late Model Qualifying.

So, bring out the friends or family this Saturday night to watch the local stars battle it out at your NASCAR Hometrack. It’s short track racing and fun that’s so close to home!

Special event General Admission is $13, Students age 12-17 with a student I.D. are $7. Kids age 6-11 are $3, while all kids age 5 & under are FREE! Grandstand gate opens at 6:00, and racing gets underway at 7:30.
