CRESCO, Iowa -- The season opener at the Cresco Speedway has been delayed one more week due to the extremely wet conditions at the Speedway. Soggy grounds has not allowed for proper time to work on the track and we do not want to start the season out with a rough racetrack.

The season opener at the Howard County Fairgrounds 4/10-mile high-banked clay oval will now be Friday, May 16.

An exciting season of Fast & Furious Fridays and racing under the United States Racing Association banner will kick off on May 16 with the season opener for the USRA Casey’s General Stores Weekly Racing Series featuring USRA Modifieds, USRA Stock Cars, USRA B-Mods, USRA Hobby Stocks and Outlaw Hobbys.

The annual Howard County Fair race will take place on Sunday, June 15, and the Season Championship for the USRA Casey’s General Stores Weekly Racing Series will happen on Aug. 22.

On Thursday, July 3, the bad-fast Stock Cars take center stage for the Great American Stock Car Shootout. The stars of NASCAR will grace the place on Tuesday, July 29, along with an invasion by the O’Reilly USMTS Modifieds.

The curtain will close on the 2008 season on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 3-4, with the USRA All-Star Invitational, featuring drivers in every USRA-sanctioned division from every USRA-sanctioned track. This will be a two-day special for the USRA Modifieds, USRA Stock Cars, USRA B-Mods and USRA Hobby Stocks. USRA-licensed drivers finishing (or currently ranked) in the top-20 in track points will be eligible.

New for 2008 will be the Cresco Speedway Party Zone, allowing vehicles and fans into the infield area for a unique view of the action. A volleyball net and horseshoe area are among the special features planned, and fans will be able to bring their own food and drink into the Party Zone.

For more information, contact the RL Promotions offices at (515) 832-6000 or visit www.rlpromotions.com online. Race day info is available by calling the track hotline at (563) 547-3400. The Cresco Speedway is located 0.2 miles north of SR 9 on SW 7th (at the Howard County Fairgrounds).
