Plymouth Dirt Track Racing
Opening night is April 28 for this 1/3-mile dirt track. You can expect late models, grand nationals, and more almost every Saturday night with plenty of special events throughout the year. They even have nights with giveaways for the kids.
Beaver Dam Raceway
With grand nationals, legends, sport modifieds, modifieds, and street stock classes, every Saturday night at this 1/3-mile dirt track is going to be a blast. They also have Tuesday night karting! Like Plymouth, they race nearly every Saturday and their opener is also on April 28.
Wisconsin International Raceway
When you want some circle track racing on pavement, then you can’t do much better than WIR. With weekend events throughout the year, regular Thursday night racing starting on May 17, and drag strip racing on most Fridays and Saturdays, WIR will always entertain.
In case you weren’t aware, one of the largest and oldest road courses in America is located just over 20 miles from Fond du Lac. It’s called Road America, and though their regular racing calendar opens with the SVRA vintage race May 18-20, they are regularly open for smaller events every weekend and even during most weeks. If you want to get out of the dirt and away from the circle, then Road America is where you want to go.
It’s a beautiful course that is worth dwelling on for a moment. With rolling green hills, expansive wooded areas, 14 turns, 4 miles of track, and numerous areas for spectators to roam and observe, Road America is a truly one of a kind experience, and it’s right in Fond du Lac’s backyard. This year they will be hosting NASCAR, IndyCar, Trans Am, and more!
