A joint effort by the Douglas County Fair Board, Viking Speedway, Klimek's Tree Service and Klimek Brothers Well Drilling resulted in a row of trees being planted near the backstretch of the speedway, between Douglas County Public Works and the racetrack. About 35 trees were added. Shown are (left to right) Scott Green from public works, Harry Davis from the fair board, Bert Pexsa from the speedway, Duane Klimek and Dan Klimek. Larger trees were planted to offer better scenery and sound absorbency.
