(West Salem, Wi) Officials of the LaCrosse Fairgrounds Speedway announced today that the 2020 season will commence on Saturday May 16 with the inaugural “Spring Fling” event. The “Spring Fling” will see the return of the NASCAR Late Models with twin 20 lap features, plus the Sportsmen, Hobby Stocks and Hornet divisions. Racing action for the Spring Fling will start at 2pm. In fact, all oval track racing events in May will see a 2pm start. Racing will commence every Saturday through the middle of August. There will be no racing on July 3, rather the Late Models will highlight the Star Spangled Spectacular on a special midweek event- Thursday July 2. The July 2nd event will include double 20 lap Late Model features, Sportsmen, Hobby Stocks, Hornets and an awesome fireworks extravaganza. Saturday July 11th will see the return of the “Quarter Mile Mania” featuring the Street Stocks, Hobby Stocks, Hornets and the very popular Demo Derby. The July 18th Fair Time Special will host the Late Models in another pair of 20 lap features. Trailer Race fans will get to see the carnage of that event on Saturday August 1 and on Sept.12. Weekly Late Model racing will conclude on August 15th. Thrill seekers will get to witness five events in 2020: the Annual “Smash O Rama” on Saturday June 27th, the Quarter Mile Mania demo derby on July 11th, the Trailer Race of Destruction on August 1st, the Enduro 200 will take place on Sept. 5th and the “Night of Destruction” will take place on Sept. 12th.
