Sorry race fans. Due to weather conditions we've been forced to postpone the 45th Annual Stock Car Stampede to Oct 14&15. Thanks for your understanding and cooperation, more details will be posted in the coming days. Thank You!
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:
Jamestown Speedway Pure Stocks (rules)
WISSOTA Street Stocks
WISSOTA Midwest Modifieds
WISSOTA Super Stocks
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.
Racing Starts at 7:00 on Thursday (Grandstands Open at 5:30)
Racing Starts at 7:00 on Friday (Grandstands Open at 3:00)
