Kick off your Memorial Day weekend at Madison International Speedway this Friday night with a full program of NASCAR All American Whelen racing and the first “Buck Night” of the 2015 season.
The Late Models, Sportsman, and Bandits plus the group from Vintage Racing of Illinois will all be in action taking on Wisconsin’s Fastest Half-Mile and the Ring of Fire. Practice begins at 5:00 with qualifying at 6:30 followed by racing at 7:30. Fans will have an opportunity to see the vintage cars on display before they take to the track.
Last week was a good one for defending champions as Dale Nottestad, Ryan Goldade, and Dan Snyder picked up wins. Opening night brought out a very competitive field of drivers in all three divisions and that’s guaranteed to be what fans can expect all season long.
Not only will fans get to see the best racing in the region, they will also be treated to the season’s first “Buck Night.” This means that all concessions including beer and soda are just $1.00. Families can also take advantage of the new family ticket pricing where two adults and up to four kids can come to the races for just $30.00.
Bring your family and friends out to Madison International Speedway this Friday night. MIS is located on Sunrise Road just south of Highway 138 two miles east of Oregon.
