Broadcast Plans Announced for Oktoberfest Weekend

Oktoberfest at La Crosse Fairgrounds Speedway is a rite of passage in Wisconsin, as fans across the state will flock to the facility to see more than 600 laps of feature racing over four days. Many of those fans will continue the fun even when the racing is done each night, with campers flooding the Fairgrounds to create a party atmosphere unlike any other in short track racing.

The event is a bucket list item for any short track racing enthusiast. However, not all fans can make the trip to La Crosse to witness Oktoberfest in person. For those fans unable to attend, Speed51 will again provide a pay-per-view broadcast of the event.

That same $10 is all you would need to watch Thursday’s opening night of racing if you are not already a Premium Member of the Speed51 Network. Thursday’s racing will be available at no extra cost to Premium Members, with memberships available for $9.99 per month or $79.99 per year.

Yearly Premium Members also receive 10-percent discounts on pay-per-view purchases, including Oktoberfest Race Weekend at La Crosse.

Thursday’s racing program includes “The Futures” Super Late Models race for drivers under the age of 30 who have never finished in the top three of ARCA Midwest Tour points and drivers over 30 who have not competed in Oktoberfest or other designated high-level racing events. The night also includes several local divisions, including the famous “Double-O” race combining La Crosse’s 5/8-mile and ¼-mile layouts.

Friday’s racing card is headlined by the Dick Trickle 99 for Super Late Models, a three-segment, 99-lap race where competitors earn points in each segment to crown an overall champion. The Midwest Truck Series and Area Sportsman will also be in action.

Saturday’s program includes Qualifying Features and Dashes for the ARCA Midwest Tour, a full program for the Big 8 Series Late Models, as well as the Midwest Dash Series and Mid-American Stock Car Series.

Finally, the weekend concludes with an action-packed Sunday, featuring the JMcK 63 Invitational, Vintage Cars, the Crateoberfest Challenge and the ARCA Midwest Tour Oktoberfest 200.
