2014 ST. CROIX VALLEY RACEWAY SCHEDULE HAS SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE
2014 marks the fourth year of operation for the ¼ mile clay, high-banked St. Croix Valley Raceway (SCVR) in St. Croix Falls, Wisconsin, and the events this year are as diverse as ever and sure to please both the hard-core race fan and the person looking for a different entertainment value.
For the hard-core race fan, SCVR has added the mighty WISSOTA Modifieds on a mostly weekly basis and will continue to bring you the events you have come to expect. SCVR’s Thunder in The Valley nights with the Upper Midwest Sprint Car Series (UMSS) wing and traditional sprint cars will dot the schedule throughout the year culminating with the very popular Kouba Memorial on Saturday, August 16th. On Friday and Saturday, July 11th and 12th, SCVR will present its marquee event, the 3rd annual Open Wheel Nationals. This year, SCVR will welcome, for the first time ever in Wisconsin, The Advantage RV Modified Tour based in South Dakota. This series is known to bring with them the biggest names in WISSOTA Modified racing. The UMSS wing and traditional sprint cars and the WISSOTA Midwest Modifieds will also join the program for two days of intense open wheel only action. In addition, WISSOTA Late Model fans will want to mark Friday, August 29th on their calendar as SCVR presents the 3rd annual Bullring Blast. SCVR has proven to be an outstanding venue for the late models to showcase their brand of intense, side-by-side racing.
For the person looking for something different and a great entertainment value, SCVR offers both. Ever see a minivan race around a track? You will at SCVR! We have added minivans to our weekly program and they should prove to be very entertaining. Most of SCVR’s $12 Family Nights have a nightly theme, such as “You Be The Driver” where YOU will get a chance to drive your car around the track, in addition to the very popular “Free Food And $1.00 Beer” nights, Trailer Races, Big Wheel/Box Car races for the kids and SCVR’s annual two Kids’ Nights. The first Kid’s Night is scheduled for Friday, June 6th. That night, everyone in the stands will be invited onto the track to meet their heroes, get their autograph, and take pictures. The second Kid’s Night on Friday, August 1st will be SCVR’s Big Bike Giveaway where kids will have the chance to win one of many bikes that will be given away free! To end the night, SCVR will present the area’s biggest fireworks.
SCVR will wrap up its season on Saturday, September 13th with its annual Crash-Tastic-Smash-O-Rama/ Halloween in September. Kaila Savage and her monster truck Heartbreaker, and Demolition Devil Scott Turkiewicz, will entertain fans with death-defying, jaw-dropping stunts. If that isn’t enough, kids and kids at heart will be encouraged to dress in costumes for trick or treating on the track, costume contests, and much more. Please reference the schedule for exact dates and start times.
SCVR’s 2014 season kicks off on Friday, April 25th with the first of many exciting nights of entertainment featuring UMSS traditional sprint cars, WISSOTA modifieds, WISSOTA Midwest modifieds, UMSS micro sprints, pure stocks and future IVs/minivans.
