We just wanted to take a moment to bring everyone up to speed on what is going on here at ‘Wisconsin’s Fastest Half Mile’.

Double Features on July 23: The Friday night July 23 program will feature double features for the NASCAR Late Models, Dave’s White Rock MISfitz, Pellitteri Waste Systems Bandits and the Roto Rooter 6shooters. As a reminder to the teams, double features pay 70% of the standard purse per feature or 140% purse for the night. There is no increase in pit or grandstand admission. Pit gates open at 3:30, practice begins at 5pm, spectator gates open at 6pm, qualifying gets underway at 6:15pm with the RA Heating and Air Conditioning Dashes going green at 7:30pm.

Autograph Night Added to August 6 Kids’ Night: In addition to the Union 464 Kids’ Night Bike Races and Bike Give-A-Way, the annual Fan Autograph Night will return as well. Fans will be invited onto the track following qualifying to meet and greet the drivers.

‘B’ Bandits: It was announced during last week’s drivers’ meeting that the Bandits would now have a ‘B’ class. Those Bandits following MIS rules will be considered ‘A’ and those following exact Jefferson Speedway rules will be considered ‘B’. There will be separate heat races contested with a combined feature with ‘B’ lined up in front of ‘A’ class Bandits. The top finishing ‘B’ Bandit will be awarded a minimum of $150 as well as a trophy in victory lane. A complimentary NASCAR License will be provided for any Bandit driver competing at any of the remaining Bandit events (7/16, 23, 8/6, 20).

Racers’ Reunion Reminder: All past racers at Capital, Impact and/or MIS are invited out to the Finishline Towing and Repair Racers’ Reunion featuring the Big 8 Late Model Series on Friday night July 30. Please RSVP by emailing or by calling 608-835-9700. We will have an autograph session under our Turn 4 Party Pavilion as well as hor d’oeuvres and beverages for the former racers.

NASCAR Championship Night August 20: We will crown our 2021 Track Champions on Friday August 20 with a Double Feature Program for the Late Models, MISfitz, Bandits and 6shooters.
