Rice Lake Speedway Special Part One; Stormed Out

By Ed Reichert

Rice Lake WI, Sept 2 – After over night rains on Friday and early Saturday morning forced a long day of track preparation for the Rice Lake Speedway track crew, a mid afternoon thunderstorm took car of any chances that racing would take place for night one of the Labor Day weekend doubleheader at the Rice Lake Speedway.

Just before 3 pm, a severe warned storm that popped up suddenly on the radar delivered wind, hail and lots of rain, making it impossible to salvage the track for racing on Saturday night.

Weather permitting, the 2017 racing season at the Rice Lake Speedway will conclude on Sunday night, Sept. 3 with a full program in all five classes that routinely race at the track. Extra money will be on the line for all classes in the season concluding program with racing beginning at 6 pm.
