Every year, racing fans in the state of Wisconsin and throughout the Midwest look forward to Oktoberfest Race Weekend at the LaCrosse Fairgrounds Speedway.  It’s one of the premier events in short track racing, with the off-track atmosphere matching the on-track excitement.


Fans unable to attend this year’s Oktoberfest will still be able to enjoy all of the exciting racing, as Speed51.TV will provide broadcast coverage of the fall staple.




All four days of Oktoberfest will be broadcast on the new Speed51.TV, Speed51’s improved streaming platform which makes watching short track racing events easier than ever before.  Thursday’s racing will be available for free to Speed51.TV monthly and yearly subscribers, while Friday through Sunday can be purchased as single-day broadcasts for $27.


There are also package options which allow fans to save on the Oktoberfest broadcast.  Fans can get the three-day Oktoberfest pay-per-view pass for $69.99, saving $11 on the weekend.  They can also purchase the PPV Late Model package, which gives fans access to all three days of racing from both Oktoberfest and the Winchester 400 weekend for $99.99, saving $51 compared to the individual video ticket prices.


The Oktoberfest Race Weekend action starts on Thursday, October 8 with the Super Late Models Futures Oktoberfest feature, the Double-O Oktoberfest feature, as well as racing for LaCrosse Late Models, Sportsmen, Hornets, Street Stocks and Hobby Stocks.


Friday’s broadcast will be headlined by the Dick Trickle 99 for Super Late Models, with the LaCrosse Late Models and Area Sportsman also in action.


Saturday’s racing sets the field for the ARCA Midwest Tour Super Late Models ahead of Sunday’s Oktoberfest 200, with qualifying, Odd and Even Dashes and qualifying features.  The Big 8 Late Model Series, Mid-American Stock Cars, Midwest Dash Series and Midwest Truck Series will also be in action on Saturday.


Sunday features the unique Cratetoberfest 602 feature, as well as vintage racing and the CWRA Late Models.  The weekend culminates with the ARCA Midwest Tour Oktoberfest 200, with a last chance feature for that race also on Sunday’s program.


Fans can explore all of the Oktoberfest broadcast options on Speed51.TV by clicking here.


Although viewers will still need to purchase their pay-per-view tickets via the Speed51.TV website, they will be able to watch all of the racing on the all-new Speed51TV Roku and Amazon Fire apps after purchasing.
