Excitement returns to Friday nights as the Red Cedar Speedway gets back on track! The 2021 season opened on April 30, and is followed by a full roster of races scheduled through the end of September. The one-third mile, semi-banked, clay oval track will host a mix of regular shows and special events, including a night for military personnel, a Race of Champions qualifier, a mechanics race, a street stock tour night, and several fundraisers. For young fans, the Red Cedar Speedway Kids Club provides season-long entertainment, hosts pre-race Meet the Driver sessions, and includes a ride around the track! With COVID-19 infection rates still fluctuating, the Red Cedar Racing Association and Dunn County officials are working together to keep a close eye on numbers. Every Wednesday evening, the RCRA will announce Friday’s grandstand capacity with posts on the Red Cedar Speedway website and Facebook page. Grandstand admission is $15 for adults, $12 for seniors and students, and free for kids 12 and under.
