  • Exciting local racing,good race track food and snacks.Track also has street drags once a month for people who want to get on the track themselves.  more »
  • The La Crosse Speedway is always fun for the entire family. I have been going there since I was a kid. The night of destruction and boat races are the best. They are always fun to watch.  more »
  • I was attending the La Crosse county fair. It was set up nicely and had a decent carnival. The prepurchased tickets were reasonable at $2 per ticket, 1 ticket per ride. However, if you had to buy the tickets the day you were there its was $1.25 per ticket and everything required multiple tickets. For the children's rides it was 3 tickets per 3 minute ride and 4 per 3 minute adult ride. Also disappointing was that 2 of the 5 adult rides were closed. The animals were great, the carnival food selection was good
  • I enjoy going the the track with friends and family. The seating, food, and atmosphere is great. Play area for kiddos is perfect. They do have bear! So if your rooting for the wrong racer you can drink to make it Oh, people have issues parking but if you can handle that you'll have a great time.
