WEST SALEM, WI – A summer of fun is right around the corner at LaCrosse Fairgrounds Speedway. One of the best way to enjoy those summer night are taking part in Thursday Night Street Drags! Five dates are slated for the 2024 Season. Thursday Night Street Drags are held on the 3rd Thursday of the month from May-September. Dates for 2024 include May 16th, June 20th, July 18th, August 15th, and September 19th!

Street Drags are a great opportunity for anyone to drag race their own car, truck, suv, van, motorcycle, atv on our 300-foot dragstrip utilizing the front stretch of the racetrack. Competitors will be broken into brackets, so you will race with vehicles like yours! Side by side fun in your own lane! We always like to say, if it has wheel, we have a bracket for you!

Brackets include (but are not limited to) Open Class, Cycles, Detroit Iron, Family Sedans, Forced Air, Domestic Performance, 2WD Trucks, Electric, SUV, ATV, Side by Side, Euro Performance, Tuners, 4WD Gas, 4WD Diesel, and High School!

“It’s an event oriented around fun, you get to participate in the event with friends and family and it truly makes it an exciting experience. If you’ve never tried Street Drags we welcome you. It’s an experience like no other!” Commented Zach Kohlmeier, Speedway Special Services Coordinator.

The fun doesn’t end there! Also, part of every Street Drag event is our Shine ‘n Show car show contest where you can showcase your hot rod as well as the Burnout Contest where you can be the burnout champion for the night!
