(West Salem, WI) – Following an exciting opening night last weekend, fans will have to wait an additional week to get back to the track and fulfill their need for speed and family fun. Tonight’s racing events at LaCrosse Speedway have been cancelled because of rain and the system impacting the upper Midwest today.

“There’s cold weather. There’s wet weather. When you put the two together, it’s absolutely miserable to be outside in,” commented Speedway General Manager. We have decided to cancel tonight’s events as the chances of rain continue throughout the evening.”
