Amazing Variety of Racing Events Showcased at Oshkosh Speedzone in August!
Oshkosh, WI; August 1, 2013 – August may be the final full month of racing at Oshkosh Speedzone Raceway before September's specials, but it won't be short on action nor variety. In fact when it comes to unique events the diversity of the upcoming races at "The Zone" are unequaled.
A total of five race dates will be presented during the month of August and it starts this Friday night August 2nd, with the Leroy Dehn Memorial race presented by Weyauwega Star Dairy and Knaus Cheese. The special event named in honor of the late Leroy Dehn is the next in the chase for the track championship as all five weekly divisions will be hand. Nearly 120 cars will be representing the classes which include the Automotive Supply Company Modifieds, Hansel Trucking IMCA Northern Sport Modifieds, Outlaw Chassis Grand Nationals, Total Power Sales Street Stocks and Lynn’s Service Center Dirt Devils.
The championships are still up for grabs in each of the divisions as no one has yet to lock up any of the points races. Expect the action to heat up as there are limited opportunities to earn points in the season long point battle.

Pit gates open at 4:00 PM, Grandstands at 5:00 PM and Racing at 7:00 PM.
