LUXEMBURG SPEEDWAY HOPES ROBINSON METALS NIGHT WILL GET THE WEATHER MONKEY OFF THE TRACK’S BACK!
(Luxemburg, WI) June 11 — Luxemburg Speedway track manager Rick Goral is hoping that Robinson Metals night June 18 at the third-mile, clay oval might shake the weather jinx that has plagued the track all season.
To date, five of eight scheduled races have been rained out in 2010. “Two years ago I believe we had seven rainouts, but to have this many right out of the box is pretty tough,” said Goral. “We’re hoping our luck will change, and the sooner the better.”
As they have in past years, Robinson Metals will throw in some extra money into the features in the respective classes. IMCA modifieds will have $300, $200 and $100 thrown into the top three feature positions while the stock cars will have $200, $125 and $75 thrown into the top three feature finishers.
In addition, northern sportmods will have $125, $75 and $50 thrown into the top three feature finishers while hobby stocks will have $75, $50 and $25 thrown in.
Sport fours will have $50, $30 and $20 thrown into the top three feature finishers, respectively. “Keep in mind this is money above and beyond our regular purse, so the top finishers will have a fairly decent payday this Friday,” said Goral.
A kid’s coin toss will take place on the track at intermission.
Racing gets underway Friday at 7 p.m. For more information call 920 845 2300. Please check the track website at luxemburgspeedway.com. Luxemburg Speedway is located 15 minutes east of Green Bay off state highway 54 at the Kewaunee County Fairgrounds in Luxemburg.
