Letter - Thanks for a great racing season

To the editor:

The Viking Speedway would like to thank all of our race fans, race teams, employees and sponsors for a great 2009 season. (It would have been a greater season if the speedway could have gotten in the Jerry Kluver race and the Fall Classic.) We would also like to thank the mayor and the city council for working with the Viking Speedway in attempting to get the Fall Classic in 2009. Plans are to add the 2009 Fall Classic to the 2010 schedule on April 15.

Also, thanks to the Chamber of Commerce for having the Viking Speedway's car show as part of the Memorial weekend and the Runestone Museum for renting out the mascot.

Thanks again to the Alexandria Police Department, Alexandria Fire Department and North Ambulance for making Viking Speedway races safe and family entertainment. Plus, a big thanks to the Douglas County Fair Board and the Douglas County Sentence to Serve program for helping make 2009 race season a success.

And, last, a big thank you to the community residents of the Alexandria area for sharing Alexandria with others during the regular season and the special events.

Bert Pexsa,

Alexandria Speedway Board

Alexandria, MN
