Rice Lake Speedway Late Models Rained Out; Fireworks Upcoming

By Ed Reichert

Rice Lake WI, June 20 – A number of Late Model teams were already on the grounds of the Rice Lake Speedway shortly after Noon, but by that time the rains had already started to fall. The steady rains just would not subside and with heavier precipitation on the way and the track becoming overly saturated, the track owners, Mitch Hansen and Dave Adams were forced to make the tough call to cancel Saturday night's racing program which was to have been the second appearance of the Late Models in 2020 at the speedway.

At this point, the next scheduled appearance for the Late Models at the track is slated to be on Saturday night, August 1st and an announcement on that event is expected to come within the next few days. Upcoming at the speedway next Saturday night, June 27th will be a five class program featuring the WISSOTA sanctioned Modifieds, Super Stocks, Midwest Modifieds, Street Stocks and Pure Stocks. The Best Appearing Car awards, judged on opening night, will be presented to the five winners. This will be a full day at the speedway as the Rice Lake Speed Pit Kart track will also be in action for an afternoon program.

And then, on Thursday night, July 2nd, the annual Firecracker special will be held at the track featuring another five class program plus the only fireworks display to be held in Rice Lake in 2020. This special is always a tremendous draw for the fans and will likely be even larger this year, given the fact that the city fireworks have been canceled for this year. Fans are advised to arrive early that night to secure their favorite seats with the gates opening at 5 pm.

Fans and competitors should also be monitoring the speedway face book page and other media outlets in the coming days as some announcements relative to the track's schedule for the rest of the season are expected to be determined.
Any questions regarding the track should be directed to Adams at 715-205-2861 or Hansen at 715-205-1122.
