2017 LaCrosse Fairgrounds Speedway Schedule

CLEMENTS AND PANITZKE CLAIM FEATURE WINS IN TWIN FEATURES AT LA CROSSE

By: Aspen Andre (West Salem, WI – August 19, 2017)

On a gorgeous August night at La Crosse Speedway, fans flooded the stands to watch the close points battles going on in the last night of weekly racing for the 2017 season.

During the first Tobacco Outlet Plus Grocery Late Model feature of the night, Nick Clements found himself in the top spot early in the race as he took the lead in lap 3 of the first 20 lap feature. Clements would be able to fight off Cole Howland to take home his first ever Late Model feature win. Howland followed behind in second and Brent Kirchner finished third.

Jesse Pokszyk found himself in the top spot during the second Tobacco Outlet Plus Grocery Late Model feature on lap 1, but wouldn’t stay there for all 20 laps as Nick Panitzke was charging to the front trying to earn himself feature win number 5 of the year. Panitzke would take over the lead on lap 13 and stay there until the final checkered flag of the night flew. Brent Kirchner would follow Panitzke across the line to finish second and Nick Clements ended in third.

The Dean’s Satellite Security Sportsmen feature saw Jeff Thompson take the early race lead on lap 1. Thompson fought off Chris Weber until lap 7 when Weber took the lead away. However, Weber had problems on lap 9 and had to leave the racing surface for the remainder of the race. Brian Hesselberg, who was out for a month after a nasty wreck earlier in the year, took over the lead from there. Hesselberg would hold onto the top spot until the end of the race to take home his second win of the night after winning the 6 for 6 Bud Dash earlier in the night as well. Randy Humfeld passed Steve Bachman on the last lap to finish second and Steve Bachman ended in third.

Kayla Lockington led the Auto Value Thunderstox field around the track for laps 2 through 8 during the feature tonight until Jason Bolster took over for a brief second during lap 9. But points leader, Adam Moore, wasn’t going to allow that as he took the lead on lap 10 and would stay there until the checkered flag flew to take home his 8th feature win of the year. Jason Bolster finished second and Bill Schott third.

Tom Farra took the lead in the Auto Value Street Stocks feature on lap 6 of 15 and would run away with it from there. Rob Stanfield would follow behind in second. Chris Larson would end in third.

Cole Howland wins the 2017 Late Model 6 for 6 Bud Dash Championship on a tie breaker due to having more dash wins. Adam Moore wins 2017 Thunderstox Bud Dash Championship. After another tie determined a Bud Dash Championship as Steve Bachman was declared the Sportsmen Dash Champion over Brad Warthan.

The next event on the Speedway calendar is Friday, August 26 for Autocross where you can test your skills on a closed-circuit road course.

Late charge puts Goede in Victory Lane 
August 12, 2017 
By: Speedway staff 
(West Salem, WI) – Jacob Goede had a night off from his regular Saturday night racing gig, and knew where he wanted to spend it – at the La Crosse Fairgrounds Speedway. 
Goede made the trip from his home in Carver, Minn., to West Salem pay off, as he swiped the lead from hot-running Mike Carlson with nine laps remaining in the Tobacco Outlet Plus Late Model feature race, then held it the rest of the way to win the 25-lap feature before a packed crowd. 
Goede held off Carlson, then Brad Powell to earn his feature race of the season. It was a good night for Nick Panitzke, too, as the Lonsdale, Minn., driver finished fourth and took over the points lead from Steve Carlson. Carlson, who qualified 11th, finished sixth in the feature and fell one point (644-643) behind Panitzke. 
It appears the race for the Late Model track championship will come down to next week, with double features scheduled, or perhaps the season-ending Oktoberfest Race Weekend, set for Oct. 4-8. 
  Fast-time qualifier Mike Carlson started sixth and quickly overpowered the competition to take an early lead, but couldn’t hold off the hard-charging Goede. 
Randy Humfeld picked up his fourth feature win of the season in the Dean’s Satellite Sportsmen division. 
Humfeld took the lead after the second caution of the main event. Second-place finisher Brad Warthan had the lead when the yellow came out. When the drivers had to choose a lane for the restart Warthan chose the high side, where he had been dominating all feature long. 
When they got the green, Humfeld moved into the top position and held off Warthan for the final five laps. 
Steve Bachman finished in the third spot. 
Hard-charging Adam Moore took home the checkered flag in the Auto Value Thunderstox 15-lap feature. Moore started in the back of the field and steadily made his way through traffic to take the lead from second-place finisher Joey Johnson with only a hand full of laps left in the main event. This was Moore’s seventh feature win of the season. 
Brandon LeMoine edged Mark Bornitz in the ANTS Pest Control Hornets feature. LeMoine lasted through four-wide racing and two cautions to hold off Bornitz by inches at the line; capturing the checkered flag. 
Glen Bush Jr. won the 15-lap Subway Restaurants Outlawz feature after qualifying in the top spot. 
Next week the Tobacco Outlet NASCAR Late Models run two 20-Lap features, and joining them are the Dean’s Satellite Sportsmen, Auto Value Thunderstox, Street Stocks.

REEDY TAKES HOME FIRST FEATURE WIN EVER AT LA CROSSE SPEEDWAY
 
By: Aspen Andre
(West Salem, WI – August 5, 2017)
 
On a gorgeous summer evening at La Crosse Speedway, fans were treated to two first’s as the Late Model and Sportsmen winners both had first time feature wins.
Ty Reedy of Holmen, WI takes home his first Late Mode feature win ever in the Tobacco Outlet Plus Grocery Late Model feature tonight at La Crosse Speedway. He claimed the number 1 spot right off the green flag and stayed there until the checkered flag flew. Brent Kirchner fought his way from sixth to finish second in the feature and Ty Majeski of Seymour made his way to third from his 14th place start.
Dakota Miller was running in the top spot in the Dean’s Satellite Sportsmen feature for the first 9 laps, but after a caution, Nathan Borchardt claimed the top spot for a couple laps until caution number 2 flew. New Prague, MN’s Adam Oxborough brought the field out of the second caution and stayed there until the checkered flag flew claiming his first feature win ever. Steve Bachman finished the feature second and Randy Humfeld finished third.
Mindoro’s Kayla Lockington started off the Auto Value Thunderstox feature in the top spot and could stay there until lap 7 when Bill Schott of Tomah would take over the lead. Schott however was unable to hold the top spot until the checkered flag flew, as Adam Moore would take the lead away for the final time during the race with 3 laps to go. Moore would stay there to pick up his 6thfeature win of the year. Kaleb Hardy would cross the finish line second and Kyle Lockington in third.
Mike Peters took the early race lead in the Mountain Dew Mini-Van feature, but would only hold it until lap 9 when John Clauson took it away from him. Matt Moore took the lead on lap 12 and could fight through the lap-13 caution to take home the feature win. Mike Peters finished second and Andy Moore third.
Tyler Mickschl in his Scooby Doo van remake took home the Trailer Race of Destruction win as fans cheered the loudest for him. Buzz Perez was a close second.

CARLSON FIGHTS TO THE FRONT FOR WIN NUMBER THREE
 
By: Aspen Andre
(West Salem, WI – July 29, 2017)
 
On a gorgeous Saturday night at LaCrosse Speedway, fans were in for an action-packed night of racing as the Late Models, Sportsmen, Thunderstox, Street Stocks, and Outlawz put on a fabulous show for them.
The Tobacco Outlet Plus Grocery Late Model feature would see Matthew Henderson of LaCrosse take the early race lead on lap one. He would stay there for the first 12 laps of the 25-lap feature, until Brent Kirchner took the lead away. Kirchner would fight off Steve Carlson for 6 laps in the top spot, but wasn’t able to stay there. Carlson would take the lead away on lap 19 and would stay there until the end to pick up feature win number three on the year. Nick Panitzke followed Carlson across the finish line and Brad Powell, the quick time qualifier, finished in third. The night ended very badly for the number 18 Jerimy Wagner. After a huge burst of flames came out of his car, heading down the front straight away whatever broke sent him sailing into the turn one wall.  Wagner was ok, but that was not the same story for his car.
After a caution in lap 5 of the Dean’s Satellite Sportsmen feature that took out the front 2 cars, West Salem’s Steve Bachman found himself in the top spot to bring the field back to green with 10 laps to go in the feature. Bachman was far from finished though, as he would have to fight through 3 more cautions before he would see the checkered flag fly. West Salem’s Jeff Thompson was also able to survive the cautions to finish second and New Prague, MN’s Adam Oxborough followed in third. One of the intense crashes inside the Sportsmen feature saw 4 time feature winner Brad Warthan of Sparta, WI tangle with the 28 of Shawn Lockington, which sent both of them sailing into the turn one wall. Lockington’s car ended up sideways before ending up on its wheels. Warthan peeled away from the wreck in a crumpled car that nobody thought would make its way back into the race. After ten minutes and numerous helping hands in the pits, Warthan made it back out to complete the race.
Kaleb Hardy of Sparta took the lead on lap 1 of the Auto Value Thunderstox feature, but it wasn’t an easy win. He would have to fight off five time feature winner Adam Moore who was looking for his sixth feature win of the season, to take home the win. Hardy would do it though, to get the feature win, Moore would finish second, and Kyle Lockington finished third.
Chris Sampson took the lead on lap 7 of the Auto Value Thunderstox feature and would take home his first feature win of the year. Benjamin Arendt finished the race in second, and Chris Larson finished third.
Jason Bolster took the race lead early in the Subway Outlawz feature on lap 1. He would be able to fight off Jerry Alsworth who was trying to take the top spot, but was unable to and took home second. Mark Challet finished in third.
The next event on the Speedway calendar is Saturday, August 5th where there will be the Late Models, Sportsmen, Thunderstox, Mini-Vans, and the Trailer Race of Destruction.

CARLSON AND PANITZKE PICK UP WINS WITH TWIN FEATURES AT LACROSSE
 
By: Aspen Andre
(West Salem, WI – July 22, 2017)
 
After Mother Nature gave the LaCrosse Speedway a good dose of rain part way through the racing program tonight, track officials and drivers were able to get the racing surface dried off in order to finish out the nights scheduled program.
The first Tobacco Outlet Plus Grocery Late Model feature for the night saw LaCrosse’s Cole Howland take the early race lead right off the green flag. He would battle off Ty Reedy for the first 11 laps of the 20-lap feature until Steve Carlson took over second. Howland would try to fight off Carlson for a few more laps, but on lap 14 Steve Carlson took the lead and would stay there until the checkered flag flew. Howland would finish the first feature second and Nick Panitzke battled his way all the way from his last place start to take home third when he passed Nick Clements with half a lap to go.
After leaving the track during the rain storm thinking that there would be no way the races would continue afterwards, Nick Panitzke took the lead of the second Tobacco Outlet Plus Grocery Late Model feature on lap 4. Panitzke was able to take home his 4th feature win after holding off Steve Carlson who was giving it his all trying to pick up his third feature win of the season. Carlson would take home second and Mike Carlson would follow behind in third.
The Dean’s Satellite Sportsmen feature had a wild start when a car got sideways in turn 4 on the first lap that pushed cars all over the front stretch trying to stay clear of the smash. Brian Hesselberg hit the front straight wall and went air born before collecting Randy Humfeld near the turn one wall, ending both of their nights. Adam Oxborough brought the field out of the caution and was able to fight off Brad Warthan for the first 9 laps, but on lap 10 Warthan took the lead and would stay there until the checkered flag flew to collect his 4th feature win of the season. Adam Oxborough finished second and Steve Bachman third.
After fighting his way to from the back of the Auto Value Thunderstox feature lineup, Jason Bolster of Sparta found himself in the top three by lap 3. Bolster would take the lead from Kyle Lockington on lap 5. From there he was able to fight off Kyle Lockington to get his first feature win of the year. Mark Challet took home second and Adam Moore third, after Lockington was disqualified during the post-race inspection.  
The ANTS Complete Pest Control Hornet feature had some spin outs due to the huge puddle in turn one from the rain event that delayed the start of the feature race tonight, but the field managed to stay caution free. Ben Thurk took the race lead in lap 4 and fought the puddle off to take home his first ever feature win. Patrick Thicke saw the checkered flag second after Mark Bornitz stalled his car in turns one and two on the last lap and was unable to finish the race. Kayla Vian finished third.
The next event on the Speedway calendar is Saturday, July 29 where there will be Late Models, Sportsmen, Thunderstox, Outlawz, Street Stocks, & Kids’ Big Wheel Races.

SON BEATS FATHER IN A BATTLE OF THE CARLSON’S AT LACROSSE SPEEDWAY
 
By: Aspen Andre
(West Salem, WI – July 15, 2017)
 
Mother Nature makes fans endure the extreme heat and humidity early in the night and then threatens them with rain as the sun goes down, but decides to hold off just enough to finish the scheduled events.
The Tobacco Outlet Plus Grocery Late Model feature would be led for the first 15 laps by Nick Clements from West Salem, but he wasn’t able to stay there until the finish as he had mechanical issues and had to leave the track with 8 laps to go. Mike Carlson took over the race lead and would hold off his father Steve Carlson until the checkered flag flew. Steve Carlson crossed the line second less than a car length behind and Tony Leis followed in third.
Justin Berg took the early race lead during the Dean’s Satellite Sportsmen feature but he wouldn’t hold it for long as Brad Warthan out of Sparta passed him to take the top spot with 10 laps to go. He would stay there until the end but had to work at the finish line to avoid a car as a driver spun out at the finish line as the race was finishing. Chaseburg’s Randy Humfeld finished second and New Prague’s Adam Oxborough finished third.
Tomah’s Bill Schott took the race lead in the Auto Value Thunderstox feature right off the bat and would hold off hard charger Adam Moore to pick up the win. Adam Moore crossed the finish line second and Scott Mahlum third. However, after post-race inspection, DQ’s were handed out to both Bill Schott and Scott Mahlum giving Adam Moore his fifth feature win of the year.
The Upper Midwest Vintage Series feature tonight had a wild start to it when Ken Lewis from Black River Falls was involved in a caution on the front stretch that caused him to fly over the front stretch wall and land on the barrier in the infield. Pat Echlin from Dyer, IN would take the race lead from there and hold it until the race was over. Chuck Adams followed him across the line in second and John Gilbertson in third.
The next event on the Speedway calendar is Friday, July 21th for the Jeff’s Auto & Cycle Repair Street Drags where there will be bracket racing, Shine N’ Show, and a burnout contest.

HENDERSON PICKS UP FIRST FEATURE WIN IN EIGHT YEARS
 
By: Aspen Andre
(West Salem, WI – July 8, 2017)
 
After a fantastic on track autograph session before the race, fans stuck around to take in an exciting night of racing at LaCrosse Speedway.
Onalaska’s Jerimy Wagner lead the Tobacco Outlet Plus Grocery Late Model feature early on but he wouldn’t be able to hold onto it until the end of the race though. Matthew Henderson would take the lead away from Wagner on lap 13 of 25.  But he wasn’t done working yet as he would have to hold off a tight 3 car race for second before he could pick up his first feature win since 2009. Brad Powell finished in second and Jerimy Wagner finished third.
After an early caution on lap one of the Dean’s Satellite Sportsmen feature, Tom Luethe would lead the pack for the next 7 laps. But after another caution came out Steve Bachman took over the top spot. Bachman would have to hold off New Prague, MN’s Adam Oxborough though for the remaining laps to pick up his first feature win of the season. Oxborough finished second from his 10th place start and Randy Humfeld finished third after starting 12th.
An exciting finish to the Auto Value Thunderstox feature where Adam Moore passed Joey Johnson with half a lap to go to take home his third feature win in a row. Joey Johnson finished second and Jason Bolster got third.
Chris Larson would take the early race lead in The Auto Value Street Stock feature but would only hold it for 5 laps until a caution flew and he fell behind. Cataract’s Tom Farra would take the lead after the caution and hold it until the end. Kevin Thomas finished second and John Eron finished third.
Matt Moore won the mini van feature after leading the whole race. Dan Frye finished second and Kyle Rozek third.
The next event on the Speedway calendar is Friday, July 14th for the Heroes Bar & Grill at Days Inn Street Drags where there will be bracket racing, Shine N’ Show, and a burnout contest.

PANITZKE BATTLES TO THE TOP FOR HIS THIRD FEATURE WIN OF THE SEASON
 
By: Aspen Andre
(West Salem, WI – June 24, 2017)
 
After a short rain that knocked qualifying and the fan photo session out of the schedule at the LaCrosse Speedway, Mother Nature decided to play nice for the rest of the evening so fans could get to watch some great short track racing.
Lonsdale, MN’s Nick Panitzke was the hard charger for the Tobacco Outlet Plus Grocery Late Model feature race tonight. Panitzke started 9th, but it only took 3 laps for him to be in the top three behind Cole Howland in first, and Tony Leis in second. It wouldn’t stay that way though…..on lap 18 Panitzke took the lead away from Tony Leis who had taken the lead away from Howland just 3 laps prior. Nick would have to fight through 3 cautions in the remaining 7 laps though to collect his third win of the season. In his post-race interview with track announcer Dan Deicher, Panitzke said “We just come out here to have fun and keep showing up if we are doing so. If it continues to go like this, we will be back for the whole season”. LaCrosse’s Brad Powell fought his way up through the traffic along with Panitzke from his 10th place start to finish second and Steve Carlson would finish third.
After taking an early race lead on lap 2 during the Dean’s Satellite Sportsmen feature by Bob Fort of Fountain City, he was involved in a caution on lap 13 forcing him to drop out of the race. Chaseburg’s Randy Humfeld took the top spot after the restart with 2 laps to go and battled off Brad Warthan from Sparta for the remaining 2 laps to take home the win. Humfeld has the most feature wins on the season so far winning 3 of the 5 races that have been held. Brad Warthan finished second, and New Prague, MN’s Adam Oxborough finished third.
The Auto Value Thunderstox saw Adam Moore from Sparta take the top spot during lap 5 of the feature. He would hold that position until the end of the race. Sparta’s Jason Bolster and Scott Mahlum finished second and third respectively.
Trempealeau’s Nate Towner led the whole 15 lap feature for the ANTS Complete Pest Control Hornets. Patrick Thicke from West Salem battled from his 14th place start to finish second and Jimmy Bjorkman from West Salem finished third.
Matt Moore of Kendall, WI took the lead on lap one of the Mini Van feature and fought off Mike Peters until there was only a half a lap to go when Peters took it away from him to win the race. Moore took second and Andy Moore took third.
The next event on the Speedway calendar is Friday, June 30th for the Star Spangled Spectacular where the TUNDRA Super Late Models, Midwest Truck Series, and the UMA Midwest Modifieds will be racing.

POKSZYK COLLECTS HIS BIGGEST STOCK CAR WIN EVER
 
By: Aspen Andre
(West Salem, WI – June 17, 2017)
 
Mother Nature held off just long enough for the LaCrosse Speedway tonight for the Late Models, Sportsmen, Thunderstox, Sportsmen, and Faster Pastors in West Salem.
The Tobacco Outlet Plus Grocery Late Models saw an early race lead by Adam Degenhardt from Coon Valley in lap one. He would only hold the lead for 6 laps though because Friendship’s Jesse Pokszyk would take the lead away from him and hold it until the feature was finished. Pokszyk told Track Announcer Dan Deicher after the race that this was his “biggest win in a stock car race to date”. West Salem’s Nick Clements would finish second, also his best feature finish in a Late Model. Corey Jankowski from Tomah finished third, his best finish in a late model.
Randy Humfeld made his way from 8th to first in 1 lap during the Dean’s Satellite Sportsmen feature. Chaseburg’s Humfeld would stay in the lead for the remaining laps battling off Brad Warthan from Sparta who was right on his back bumper. Warthan would follow him across the finish line in second and Jeff Thompson in third.
The Auto Value Thunderstox Feature saw Mark Challet take the lead early on after a caution on lap one…….taking out all three of the front runners. Bangor’s Challet would only hold the lead until lap 8 though when Adam Moore of Sparta would take it away from him. Moore would stay in the top spot until the checkered flag flew and Mark Challet would follow him in second. Jason Bolster from Sparta took home third.
John Eron from Winona, MN would pick up his second feature win in the Auto Value Street Stocks for the year. Whitehall’s Mike Peters crossed the finish line in second and Sparta’s Dakota Miller would cross third.
The Thrivent Financial Faster Pastor races had three races tonight. The winner of the Women’s Faster Pastor race was Kayla Tomas of the Avoca Bible Church in Avoca. Jarren Mills of Berean Baptist Church in Galesville won the first Men’s Faster Pastor race and Andy Lefebre from River’s Harvest in Onalaska won the second Men’s Faster Pastor race.  
The next event on the Speedway calendar is Saturday, June 24 for Pischke Motors Autograph Night where there will be a pre-race on-track autograph session and the first 500 fans get a FREE collector’s racing poster!

STEVE CARLSON PICKS UP HIS FIRST FEATURE WIN OF THE YEAR AT LACROSSE
 
By: Aspen Andre
(West Salem, WI – June 10, 2017)
 
On a beautiful June night at the LaCrosse Speedway, there was a large crowd, kids galore for Klement’s Kids Night, and another eye-opening car count for an action-packed night of racing at the famed five-eighth’s mile track.
Devin Schmidt of Belle Plaine, Minn., led the pack for the 25-lap Tobacco Outlet Plus Late Model feature for the first 10 laps, but it wouldn’t last. Steve Carlson, a four-time defending Late Model track champion, made an amazing move in Turn 2, going low, then powering out of the turn on the back stretch to slide past Schmidt. Carlson took the lead, then brought Nick Panitzke – the early surprise of the season -- with him. Carlson of West Salem and Panitzke of Lonsdale, Minn., fought hard to keep their spots as La Crosse’s Brad Powell, a former track champion, was pushing hard with everything he had to try and push the leaders. In the end though, it was Steve Carlson who saw the checkered flag first, followed by Panitzke and then Powell. It was Carlson’s first feature win of the young season.
 After the race, track announcer and former Mid-Pack Legend Bill Niles asked Nick Panitzke what he thought of the last few laps, he had this to say.
“I have a lot of respect for these guys, Steve included, and they did great job up front.”
The Dean’s Satellite Sportsmen feature saw Bangor’s Brian Hesselberg take the early race lead, but by Lap 8, Steve Bachman of West Salem took it away from him. Brad Warthan of Sparta, last week’s feature winner, was in the right spot at the right time to grab the top spot with 3 laps to go in the 15-lap feature. He was forced to battle through three more caution flags before the checkered flag flew. Jeff Thompson of West Salem finished second, while another West Salem driver, Tom Luethe, took third.
The Auto Value Thunderstox feature was led the entire time by Jason Schaller of French Island. Sparta’s Adam Moore finished second, while La Crosse’s Kyle Lockington finished third after losing control coming out of Turn 4. Jason Bolster finished fourth while Kaleb Hardy rounded out the top five.
In the Ants Complete Pest Control feature, Jimmy Bjorkman of West Salem took over the race lead on Lap 6 and held it until the checkered flag flew. Mark Bornitz followed in second and Kayla Vian in third.
Jason Bolster led all 15 laps of the Subway Outlawz feature, with Mark Challet taking second.
After a wild start to the Queen Bee’s race where Amy Eckelberg of Madison hit the protective tires in Turn 2 and flipped her car onto its lid, Tina Gettinger eventually wound up taking the checkered flag. Wendy Liebsch took second, Amy Treu third, and fourth was Angie Piotrowski. Eckelberg was not injured and was in good spirits during the cleanup efforts when she told announcer Bill Niles, “I’m ok, but I think I need a new roof on my car.”
The next event on the Speedway calendar is Saturday, June 17, for Old Dutch Foods night where the Thrivent Financial Faster Pastor Races will take place, along with Late Models, Sportsmen, Thunderstox, and Street Stocks.

PANITZKE SWEEPS TWIN LATE MODEL FEATURES AT LACROSSE SPEEDWAY
 
By: Aspen Andre
(West Salem, WI – June 3, 2017)
 
After some early evening rain showers and track drying was complete, we went green flag racing at LaCrosse Speedway with a gorgeous Wisconsin sunset as a backdrop.
After a caution coming out of turn 4 on the first lap of the Tobacco Outlet Plus Late Model Feature 1, Nick Panitzke took the early race lead and ran away with it from there to pick up his first ever regular season feature win! He held off Cole Howland and Brad Powell who finished second and third respectively.
During the second feature, he took the race lead with 8 laps to go in the 20 lap feature and had to hold off Steve Carlson who was trying for the lead. Panitzke prevailed. West Salem’s Carlson followed in second, and Tony Leis of Middle Ridge took home third.
The Dean’s Satellite Sportsmen Feature saw and Bob Fort of Fountain City lead this one early, but by lap 8 he lost that lead in a 3 car wreck. On Lap 8, after a couple of cautions, Sparta’s Brad Warthan took the race lead and held onto it until the checkered flag flew. Randy Humfeld of Chaseburg took second and Steve Bachman of West Salem followed in third.
After their first 2 races were canceled due to rain, the Auto Value Street Stocks finally got to turn some laps on the track tonight. Cameron Riggs of Winona, MN took the race lead early on lap 1 and held onto it until lap 9, when Tom Farra of Sparta, WI took the lead away from him. Farra stayed out front for a couple laps until John Eron of Merrilan, WI stole it from him with 4 laps remaining and picked his first Street Stock Feature win of the season. Tom Farra finished second and Keith Larson finished third.
The Auto Value Thunderstox feature was won by Kyle Lockington of LaCrosse who took the front spot on lap 4 and stayed there until lap 15 when the checkered flag flew. Mark Challet from Bangor followed in second and Adam Moore finished third with a pass in turn 4 on the final lap.
The next event on the Speedway calendar is Friday, June 9 for Sea Foam Street Drags.

MAJESKI TAKES SEASON OPENER AT LACROSSE SPEEDWAY
By: Aspen Andre
(West Salem, WI – May 13, 2017)
 
Mother Nature played nice this week for the LaCrosse Speedway Season Opener after last week’s rainout. With a couple races starting with cautions and some cars being hauled off the track before laps were even completed the night was packed with action.
The Tobacco Outlet Plus Late Model feature got off to a rough start when 5 cars got involved in a caution right as the race got started and we lost 2 cars out of the field before an official lap was even completed. Nick Clements, a relatively new Late Model driver led the field for the first 6 laps, but then fell behind when Steve Carlson took the lead until lap 14 when a caution came out and Nick Panitzke took over for a lap. By lap 15 though, Carlson had was back in the lead for 4 laps again, until Seymour’s Roush Racing driver Ty Majeski took over on lap 19. Majeski held the lead until the checkered flag flew. West Salem’s Steve Carlson finished the night in second and Tony Leis out of Middle Ridge, WI took third.
With a caution in turn one right after the green flag dropped for the Dean’s Satellite & Security Sportsmen feature we saw Chris Skrede from Sparta, WI take the lead for the first two laps before Brian Hesselberg took it from him for 3 laps. In lap 6 there was another caution where Randy Humfeld from Chaseburg, WI took the lead coming out of that and held onto the lead for the remaining 9 laps. Following Humfeld across the line were Adam Oxborough of New Prague, MN and Steve Bachman of West Salem, WI.
Adam Moore of Sparta, WI lead the majority of the laps in the Auto Value Thunderstox race and held the position all the way until the end. Kaleb Hardy and Jason Bolster both also from Sparta finished second and third respectively.
The ANTS Complete Pest Control Hornet feature was led by Cheyanne Stanfield of Sparta for the first 12 laps when Garrett Thicke of West Salem took the lead for 2 laps. But it was Mark Bornitz from Holmen who had the last lap pass to take the checkered flag and Cheyanne Stanfield and Charles Vian followed.
Glen Bass won the Subway Outlawz feature and Jerry Alsworth finished second.
The next event on the Speedway calendar is Saturday, May 20 for Whelen Night with Late Models, Sportsmen, Thunderstox, Outlawz, Street Stocks, and Kids’ Box Car Races.
