WEST FARGO, N.D. — When it comes to having a lot of different classes for race fans to see throughout the summer, Red River Valley Speedway in West Fargo has things covered.

“We worked all winter on the schedule to give the fans a variety of race classes to watch during the 2019 season,” RRVS chief operating officer Nick Skalicky said. “In fact, we have seven different nights with five different sprint car classes: IMCA, NOSA, World of Outlaws, Northern Renegades Non-Winged, and NLSA Lightning Sprints. We also added the growing IMCA SportMod class to the Red River Valley Fair ticket in July. Plus the Outlaws make their third trip back to the track in August along with the NLRA Late Models. The 2019 race schedule has a lot of action each night for the fans and race teams and we’re looking forward to kicking off the season on May 3.”
