Back by popular demand for the sixth straight year, Red Tail Tackle presents The Dweebs on Friday night.

SPRING VALLEY, Minn.—Sure, you’re going to see some incredible racing when the 18th Annual Featherlite Fall Jamboree gets underway at the Deer Creek Speedway next Thursday, Sept. 22, but the good times don’t end at the checkered flag.

Early bird race fans can get a free preview of the action, and drivers will get their chance to make final adjustments to their machines with an open practice from 6-9 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 21.

On Thursday, fans are invited to the pit area to hang out with drivers and crews for a live DJ and karaoke under the tent following the races.

On Friday, the annual Club Car Jamboree Open golf tournament for racers, crew members, event officials and fans will tee off at 10 a.m. at the Root River Country Club in Spring Valley. Sign-in is from 8:30-9:30 a.m. at the golf course.

The top three teams will score cash prizes and many other awesome prizes will also be awarded. There will be hole-in-one and longest putt contests too.

As in the past, the format for this year’s outing will be a four-person best-ball contest with a Texas-style shotgun start. Entry is $40 per person and covers nine holes of golf with cart, cash awards, prizes and a hearty meal.

Slots still remain but space is limited to 80 players. To enter, call the USMTS office at (515) 832-7944 or Deer Creek Speedway at (507) 754-6107. You can also sign up at the USMTS souvenir trailer behind the Deer Creek Speedway grandstands while space remains.

Back by popular demand for the sixth straight year, Red Tail Tackle presents The Dweebs as they will be rocking the Deer Creek Speedway Friday night under the big top immediately following the final race of the night.

Family owned and operated since 1987, America's Favorite Party Band will be playing live after the races on Friday night, and all ages are welcome. The show is free for all race attendees.
