This was our first time at the track and we were just astonished by how many people were there! Thankfully we had family and friends who've been there before and knew the ropes.

Love watching everyone race. Especially my daughter the #8 in the Junior Sportsman group! Thanks to her wonderful sponsors and all that help her to be successful. She has a large group of fans.

I haven't seen very many local tracks do things as well as the La Crosse Fairgrounds Speedway does. The setup keeps things flowing smoothly, there's always plenty of racing action, and everything from the concessions to the announcers is enjoyable. Only negative thing I can say is this place is in DESPERATE need of new bleachers/seating in some areas...our wonderful... More

A full night of entertainment starting with time trials and moving to small heats featuring everything from Joe Blow driving his moms old Dodge Intrepid to sponsored semi pro racers from around the country. My whole family enjoyed Joe's races more than the others. You must stay until the end for the real entertainment that includes everything from school bus... More

It's part of the fairgrounds. The car races are popular even during the fair. We love the fair. Check it out.

Eve of Destruction is always fun. I do wish they would enforce rules a lttle more. People smoking in the bleachers all over the place and kids standing on the bleachers in front of others make it hard to enjoy sometimes.
