West Salem, WI. – Fans and race teams anxious about getting their upcoming racing season mapped out can now make their plans, as today officials from LaCrosse Fairgrounds Speedway announced details of its 2015 event schedule.

 

“The framework of our 2015 season will mirror much of the 2014 season, when it comes down to dates and what weekends fall with our major events,” commented Speedway President Gregg McKarns.

 

The 2015 NASCAR Whelen All-American Series season will kick off for the first time in decades during the afternoon, on Sunday, April 26th with the running of the ‘Budweiser Frostbuster’ Race. It includes a full program of Late Models, Sportsmen, Thunderstox, Hornets and Outlawz on the 5/8th and 1/4th mile paved ovals.

 

Saturday night weekly racing will commence on May 16th and will run through August 22nd.

 

“Looking ahead at some of the things planned for the 2015 season, fans will notice a rare mid-season Saturday off. This year, rather than racing on Saturday July 4th, a full racing program will take place on Friday night, July 3rd,” continued McKarns. “We realize that a lot of our fans and race teams like to get together with their friends or families for the 4th, so we will try a Friday-night race this year as we salute Independence Day,” added McKarns. The July 3rd race will feature the TUNDRA Super Late Models, the Great Northern Sportsmen Series, Thunderstox, and of course, a huge Fireworks Extravaganza.

 

Other Notable event dates on the 2015 schedule include the Smash-O-Rama on Saturday, June 13th while the popular Eve of Destruction will be a week later this year, on September 13th. The Midwest’s oldest and most prestigious short track asphalt racing event, the 46th Oktoberfest Race Weekend, will conclude the racing season, October 8th through 11th.

 

In addition to the oval racing will be the popular “Street Drags,” on Friday nights. As Street Drags heads into its ninth season, the lineup will be similar to last year, and take place the second Friday night of the month starting in May, and ending in September. Plus, additional events will take place on Friday, July 17th during the Interstate Fair and the Speedway’s final scheduled event of the 2015 calendar, the 300′ Bracket Nationals on Saturday, October 17th.
