FOUNTAIN CITY, Wis. - A overflow crowd was on hand to witness the season opener of the new Mississippi Thunder Speedway in Fountain City, Wis., Friday. Highlighted by the USRA Modifieds, the newness of it all rolled into a near complete show by night’s end.

After a steady, but brief shower prior to race time, the temperatures cooled down drastically as the lightning show amped up throughout the evening occasionally letting go of some big raindrops.

The night finally succumbed to the rains after the USRA Modified feature took to the track. The USRA Modifieds hit the track for their feature, but they only got a few laps in when the hard rains came crashing down.

Next week will be the continuation of the USRA Modified feature as they will resume on the lap they left off with along with the 600 Mini Mod Feature and Hornet feature followed by the regular show. Be sure to visit the track website for information regarding the season ahead.
