2015 Stock Car Stampede Sept 25th & 26th

The most exciting weekend of motorsports in Jamestown is here!  The 44TH Annual Stock Car Stampede.  This year's event follows the traditional format of heats for all 7 CLASSES on Friday beginning at 7:00 PM.  Consolation races and Feature races will be Saturday at 5:00.  Classes scheduled are noted below, the only difference this year is the Slingshots (age 7-13 division) have been added.  The format and class structure for the Stock Car Stampede has proven successful in recent years and we're hoping this year is no different!  The goal remains to have two days of 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 7 classes:
Jamestown Speedway Pure Stocks (rules)
WISSOTA Street Stocks
WISSOTA Midwest Modifieds
WISSOTA Super Stocks
WISSOTA Modifieds
IMCA Modifieds
WISSOTA Late Models

Driver Calcutta Auction Thursday at 6:00 PM. (Click Here for Registration Form)
The event unofficially kicks off Thursday night at 6:00 PM with the Driver Calcutta Auction in the beer gardens building just south of the grandstands.  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.
