Dirt Track Racing returns to the Half Mile
Fans, drivers and crew members will once again enjoy regular scheduled racing on the big half mile clay oval. Fifteen scheduled races throughout 2015 revives the high speed track and brings affordable, local racing back to the Dodge County Fairgrounds Speedway. Twelve of the fifteen dates planned are being organized by the Dodge County Speedway Association (DCSA) with three special events by the Interstate Racing Association (IRA Sprints).
Formed in 2014, the DCSA is comprised of volunteer drivers, crew members and fans who wanted to see racing return to the Speedway. The newly formed racing association will oversee all aspects of the race night activities while renting the facility from the Fair Association. Scheduled divisions will be IMCA style Modifieds, IMCA style Sport Mods, Grand Nationals, Street Stocks, and the brand new Steel Block Dirt Late Model division that will utilize GM604 crates and IMCA style open motors.
