I-94 Speedway in Fergus Falls has another full summer of events slated for the 2019 season. Eighteen shows are slated at the 3/8-mile dirt oval, located on the north side of Fergus Falls. The season is scheduled to open on May 3.
The track will run the same weekly classes as 2018 — Wissota Late Models, Wissota Modifieds, Wissota Street Stocks, Wissota Midwest Modifieds, Limited Late Models and Short Trackers.
Some schedule highlights:
—The Advantage RV Mod Tour returns to I-94 on May 31, and will be at Viking Speedway in Alexandria the following night.
—The King of the Dirt special is earlier this year and will be held on June 21.
—The United States Modified Touring Series is back on Aug. 9 for the Summersota Nationals.
—The Limited Late Model 30 and Short Tracker Shootout are set for July 12 (Wissota Lates will have the night off).
—The Dick Johanneck Memorial is set for Aug. 23 in honor of the long-time track owner, Dick Johanneck, who died in 2018. Johanneck’s birthday was Aug. 22 and late models will run for a bigger purse that night.
Of course, the highlight of the year comes in September when I-94 Speedway hosts the Speedway Motors Wissota 100 for a second straight year. The 2019 event is slated for Sept. 11-14.
