Speedway closed in Darlington

DARLINGTON — The Lafayette County Speedway announced March 30 that it was forced to postpone the start of the season due to Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers’ stay-at-home order. 

“We do not know when we’ll start,” read a statement Lafayette County Promotions LLC released March 30. “As of now we’re looking at May 1.”

The speedway has taken to social media to keep its people updated and interact with its fans.

“Please realize this is a day-by-day situation,” the statement read, adding that the speedway has received several phone calls and emails asking about the season. “We don’t have a lot of answers right now. Nobody knows when this will end. When we are able to gather and know more, we will let you all know. For now, we ask for your patience as we sort this out. We want to race just as much as you.”

Lafayette County Speedway is a dirt-track raceway with nearly 70 years of racing history. 

April 18 was slated for the Test & Tune night, with opening night of racing scheduled for Friday, April 24.
