                Nobody wants to complain about any rain that comes our way this summer but for the fifth time this summer it has picked a Friday to drift thru and took out another night of racing at Chateau Speedway.   With just nine nights or racing in this summer because of the sporadic weather The Tracks attention now turns towards a very busy August.

                The month kicks off next week with Chateau Speedway hosting the Mid-American Renegade Traditional Non-Wing Sprints for the third of there three specials this summer.  All six regular classes will also be a part of the show.   The show is actually one week sooner than the original schedule indicated as a late scheduling conflict came up and they asked The Track to let them move there show up one week.  The Track was able to accommodate them however the fireworks show that was suppose to be a part of there show in two weeks could not be moved and so the Fireworks will stay on the 13th.  One of the favorite events of the season will take place in three weeks on the 20th.  That will be Kids Night.  Kids Night will once again start out with Kids Rides in the Stock Cars at 6:15.  Than during the course of the night there will be bicycle giveaways as well as a free ice cream treat for the kids twelve and under.  Then on the 27th it’s the rescheduled “Spirit of 83” Memorial Race featuring the Mike Guttormson Memorial A-Mod Feature event with the big payday wraps up the month of August.  The event was suppose to run back on Memorial Day weekend which is its traditional spot on the schedule but Mother Nature had other ideas that weekend.   Of course the action continues into September with Season Championship Night and a National Points Special the first two weeks of the month before wrapping up with the Fourth Annual Autumn Extravaganza the first weekend of October with two full nights of racing action.  The Summer may be winding down but the action is still heating up.
