Rice Lake Speedway Wet; 2017 Season Finale Scheduled

By Ed Reichert

Rice Lake WI, August 27 – The races Saturday night at the Rice Lake Speedway were canceled early in the day by a soaking rain that left no chance of racing taking place anytime soon. The regular season finale will not be made up.

The focus now swings to this coming weekend when the Rice Lake Speedway will wrap up the 2017 racing season with their annual Labor Day weekend doubleheader.

Two complete racing programs will be held this coming weekend with a full show for all five WISSOTA sanctioned classes that normally compete at the track. On Saturday, September 2nd, all five classes will be running for the normal weekly purse with the exception that the lineup format will be draw/redraw. Modifieds, Super Stocks, Midwest Modifieds, Street Stocks and Pure Stocks will all be in action for a full show.

On Sunday, September 3rd, another full show will be run for all classes with a boost in purse in all classes for that night. Draw/redraw will again be used and details on the purse are expected to be announced soon and should be available on the speedway face book page.

An earlier start time is planned for both shows this coming weekend. For both Saturday and Sunday, the pit gate opens at 3 pm, the grandstands open at 4 pm, the draw cutoff for drivers is 5:30 pm and racing will start at 6 pm.

Free camping will be offered for the Labor Day weekend special in the lower parking lot and fans are encouraged to take advantage of that.
