The 101st racing season promises to be busy at the Norman County Raceway in Ada, highlighted by several sprint car specials.
Regular classes at the 3/8-mile oval include the IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Stock Cars, IMCA SportMods, IMCA Hobby Stocks, Wissota Midwest Modified and INEX Legends.
“We’re looking forward to another exciting season as we hit the 101st year of racing at the Norman County Fairgrounds,” NCR promoter Jake Bitker said. “We have six different sprint car specials scheduled this season including the NLSA Lightning Sprints, IMCA Sprint Cars, NOSA Sprint Cars, and the Northern Renegades Non-Winged Sprint Cars. The Norman County Fair in June brings the Battle of the Businesses Bus Races, Minn-kota Legends Tour, and new this year, Baja Racing. Plus we also have many ‘theme nights’ scheduled in 2019. Come on out and enjoy small town racing at its best at the home of Thursday Night Thunder, Norman County Raceway.”
There is a test and tune night scheduled for May 16, with the season opener set for May 23. That night is also the Dakota Cat Mod Shootout along with an appearance of the IMCA Sprint Cars. The Non-Winged Spring Cars will be at NCR on June 6.
The Minn-Kota Legends tour stops at NCR on May 30 and also returns during the Norman County Fair on June 20. The Norman County Fair highlight is on June 20 when the NOSA Sprint Cars are in town.
On July 18 the first night of the IMCA Stock Car King Pin Klash will be held along with the Wissota Midwest Modified Race of Champions. NLSA Lightning Sprints will make two appearances at the track as well.
Night 1 of the Sanders Modified Challenge is set for Aug. 1. Season Championship night is Aug. 22.
