Keith Cumming, Greenbush, Minnesota (May 4) With May arriving, it can only mean that racing at Greenbush Race Park isn’t too far away. But first, at the 2017 WISSOTA awards banquet, the Race Park was given the “Award of Excellence” by the sanctioning body. It’s quite an honor for a smaller track like the Race Park to win track of the year and says a lot about the quality of show we put on on a weekly basis.
For 2018, the Race Park will again run the WISSOTA Modifieds, Streets, and Midwest Modifieds, along with the Lightning Sprints, Pure Stocks, and limited dates for the 4 Cylinders, and Outlaw Mini Mods. The first of 16 nights of racing kicks off on the 26th with all classes running.
June opens with regular nights of racing on the 2nd, and 9th, the 16th will be the 3rd Dugan Nelson memorial for the Midwest Mods. On the 23rd will be the first of three visits to the Race Park for the NLRA Late Models, and the Jack Grahn memorial. June closes out with a regular night of racing on the 30th.
July kicks off with the only visit of the summer for the NOSA Sprints on the 7th, followed by a regular night of racing on the 14th. The 21st will be a special for the Pure Stocks and the Chad Olson memorial for the Lightning Sprints. The 28th features the second visit for the NLRA Late Models.
August opens with a Street special on the 4th, the 11th will be the 20th running of the Elliot Baker memorial for the Modifieds. The Race of Champions qualifier will be held on the 18th, and the last visit of the summer for the NLRA Late Models on the 25th.
The 2018 race season wraps up Labor Day weekend with two nights of racing for all classes on the 1st and the Points Championships being decided on the 2nd.
