Weather conditions on the scheduled weekend for the 45th Annual Stock Car Stampede forced us to move the date to Friday & Saturday, October 14th & 15th.  The racing program and schedule of events is going to be exactly as it was for the scheduled race with Street Stocks, MW Mods, Super Stocks, Modifieds and Late Models running heat races on Friday night, along with Consi races for the Street Stocks.  Saturday will be Consi races for the MW Mods, Super Stocks, Modifieds & Late Models, then we'll run the Jackrabbit Dash for the bombers and have an awards presentation for past Stampede participants and organizers.  After that we'll cap Saturday's program with Features for Street Stocks, MW Mods, Super Stocks, Modifieds and Late Models!

Prices, Payouts, and most details listed in the post below remain the same.  Pit Gates will open at 10AM Friday.  Camping permits purchased for the scheduled race will be honored for the rescheduled dates (new campers will still need to pay the $25 per night fee).  If you have a wristband or ticket from the scheduled date and would like a refund you may mail the ticket or wristband along with your name, phone number and return address and we will mail you a refund.

Any questions about the upcoming race please check the details below or contact Keith at 701-320-4275, Tim at 701-527-2467 or email us:

The most exciting weekend of motorsports in Jamestown is coming!  The 45TH Annual Stock Car Stampede.  This is the first year of a three day event format that kicks off Thursday night at 7:00 PM, featuring a full show for the Bombers, JR SlingShots and SR SlingShots.  SlingShots are done after Thursday night but 15 Bomber drivers will be returning Saturday night for a new race we're calling the Jackrabbit Dash (details to follow!)  Trophies for Thursday's Stampede Champions will be awarded Saturday Evening prior to Feature Races.

Friday Night Starts at 7:00 PM with heat races for the other 5 CLASSES.  Consolation races and Feature races for those classes will be Saturday at 5:00.  New this year on Saturday is a $500 to win Non-Qualifiers race for the IMCA Modifieds.  The format is a little different this year than past years but the goal remains the same - we want a non-stop 'Stampede' of racing with good, hard, fast, clean racing, mixed with some camping, cookouts, and hanging with old friends.   This is one event you want to be a part of!

250-300 drivers expected in these 8 classes:
JR SlingShots
SR SlingShots
Jamestown Speedway Pure Stocks (rules)
WISSOTA Street Stocks
WISSOTA Midwest Modifieds
WISSOTA Super Stocks
IMCA Modifieds
WISSOTA Late Models

Driver Calcutta Auction  (Click Here for Registration Form)
This year the Calcutta Auction will be held in two parts - Bomber drivers will be auctioned in the main speedway grandstands beginning at 6:15 Thursday evening.  Drivers in the other classes will be auctioned off in the beer gardens building just south of the grandstands following Thursday Evening's races.  If you've never seen a Calcutta auction you'll want to check this out.  A quick explanation of the Calcutta auction is drivers in each class are divided into pairs, then those pairs are auctioned off and bidders determine their value by how likely they are to win.  Proceeds from the auction are split between the winning bidder, competitors in the class, and local charities.
