NASCAR LATE MODEL: The NASCAR Late Models are the top division at the speedway. These cars race weekly for track points, and for the NASCAR Advance Auto- National and State Championship standings. The cars are build for racing “ground-up” with the exception of engine components that must remain stock from the automobile manufacturer. Body styles used are from approved domestic made cars, 1992 or newer. They race on 10-inch wide slick race tires and may either use high-octane race fuel, or regular pump gasoline.

GRAND NATIONAL SPORTSMEN: The Sportsmen cars are the “middle” division at the speedway. They run on the 5/8th mile track, and begin as street appearing cars, trucks or modified bodies. Because the track allows some many different body and chassis styles for this division, a maximum speed (lap time) is enforced. A driver can not go faster than the posted lap time. If they do, the are relegated to the rear of the race. They do have one “mulligan” in which the team can break the limit…but only once and can not be on the last lap. Although very different for normal oval racing, it does provide the fans with extremely close racing and adds a new challenge of racing to the teams. Tires used are an 8-inch wide treaded race tire, and they may use the same fuel as the Late Models. LaCrosse Fairgrounds Speedway Official Rulebook – SPORTSMEN
HOBBY STOCKS The Hobby Stocks cars are full-bodied strictly stock class, including a stock engine. Only a few modifications are made for safety to the cars. These cars race on a smaller, inner oval – a quarter mile track. All of these cars were at one time used as street cars in the 1980’s and 1990’s. A minimum weight is 3400 pounds and they race on treaded racing tires. LaCrosse Fairgrounds Speedway Official Rulebook – HOBBY STOCKS (Thunderstox)
HORNETS: The Hornets are the Speedway’s entry level division, which race about once a month. These cars are typical 4-cylinder small cars seen on the streets in the 1980’s, 1990’s and even the 2000’s. This division is for fun, and the easiest way for someone to try their hand at racing. The cars are strictly stock from the street…. most of the interior is gutted out, a roll bar is added, a few other safety modifications, and it’s ready to race.
