Tuesday, July 26, 2011 - Oshkosh, WI. - Hardcore race fans who prefer one type of racing surface over another have made their opinions known. Phrases like "dirt's for racing, asphalt's for getting to the track" and conversely "asphalt 's for racing, dirt is for planting corn" can commonly be heard.

Driver's likewise often have a preference but what of those who have an opportunity to try both?

In three divisions, that number separates would be champions from their rivals. As the season heads into the final month one can begin to look at the title chases and determine the contenders.

So just who is looking solid and which divisions have the closest title chases?

First, let's look at the point system.

Oshkosh Speedzone Raceway awards 40 points to the winner of a feature race. For every position behind the winner the points drop by one. As a result second place scores 39 points, third scores 38 and so forth. The 20th position in a feature scores 21 points.

Tuesday, July 19, 2011 - Oshkosh, WI. - It was an evening to honor the past and celebrate the present as three new inductees were added to the tracks Walk of Fame. Leroy Dehn, Jerry Reichenberger and Erv Schmude joined the list of those honored for their racing accomplishments at the former Leo's Speedway, predecessor of the current Oshkosh Speedzone Raceway.


The Oshkosh Speedzone as well as many other tracks is at the half way of the race season. During the first half of the season there was some great racing going on as well as some blunders. We are looking a great second half of the season to come. There are many close races going on like the Miller Lite Grand Nationals where there is just 5 points separating 1-5 positions and many other close points’ races going on.
