CHILTON FALL CLASSIC MOVES TO 141 SPEEDWAY SEPTEMBER 24 AND 25
(Francis Creek, WI) Aug 19 – Although it will still be called the Chilton Fall Classic, Wisconsin’s most popular two day dirt track racing event will move to the state’s newest dirt track 141 Speedway in Francis Creek on Friday September 24 and Saturday September 25. The raindate is Sunday, September 26.
The Chilton track has remained closed this year, and one of the event’s promoters, Merle Lisowe, has helped whip 141’s new clay surface into one of the top racing surfaces in the area. “We’re pretty excited to be bringing the show to 141,” said Lisowe, from Chilton. “The facilities are top notch and we’re bringing in pretty much the same classes. The format will pretty much remain the same.”
In order to accommodate the expected 300 plus race teams in eight different classes, 10 acres of adjacent property to the pit area on the south end of the the pits will be leased.
“We also plan on using the area behind our main entrance as a makeshift pit area for the race teams,” said track promoter Bruce Conard. “We’re gonna make this a huge event. Merle, Bob Cullen and Diane Schulz have done this special for many years and know what it takes to put on a great show. We’re happy to be part of it this year.”
