LUXEMBURG SPEEDWAY GETS NEW SURFACE FOR 2011

LUXEMBURG SPEEDWAY SURFACE GETS LONG OVERDUE FACELIFT

(LUXEMBURG, WI) Sept 28 — Luxemburg Speedway track officials are happy to announce that the track’s third-mile, clay oval located at the Kewaunee County Fairgrounds is receiving a new surface that
is long overdue.

During this week Kewaunee County crews will add more than 2000 yards of red clay that will help reshape the racing surface. “The biggest thing is we’re getting this laid down before the frost settles in,” said Goral. The last time the racing surface got fresh clay was in 2003, when more than 7000 yards of clay was added, which at the time increased the banking significantly. That clay was acquired from a farmer near the Kewaunee/Brown County line. Prior to that, the racing surface had been more flat.

A small amount of clay was added four years ago in the corners, basically as maintenance. “That clay wasn’t the best and it peeled up a bit,” said Goral.

In addition to the new racing surface, Goral and his group Lakeshore Motorsports Promotions hope to have new frontstretch fencing installed prior to the opener in April, 2011. Other improvements are in the works.
