August 27, 2022 - Rice Lake Speedway Championships Wet; September 3rd Finale Set
Early morning rains on Saturday dumped over a inch of rain on the Rice Lake Speedway. The track crew started working on the track early in the day but the combination of too much mud and very poor drying conditions made it clear that by 2 pm that they just weren't going to be able to get the track in the shape it needed to be to provide good racing for the Season Championships and the event was cancelled. Rain later in the afternoon and evening would have made any attempts at racing a moot point anyway. <<MORE>>

August 2, 2022 - Traynor Wins Rice Lake Speedway Little Dream; Record Payoff Tops Twenty Eight Grand
The Twenty Eighth Annual Street Stock Little Dream Race, held on Tuesday night at the Rice Lake Speedway, may well go down as one of the most memorable races in this long series.
