Free admission to Viking Speedway July 27

Last summer, record crowds took advantage of free admission and packed the grandstands at four sold-out Jam the Stands stock car racing events sponsored by the Minnesota Corn Growers Association (MCGA).

MCGA and other local sponsors are doing it again in 2013, this time at nine tracks throughout Minnesota, including Viking Speedway in Alexandria on Saturday, July 27 at 6 p.m.

Admission is free, and race fans will have an opportunity to win one of two $50 Visa gift cards throughout the evening, courtesy of MCGA.

Fans will also have the opportunity to learn more about ethanol and renewable fuels by stepping inside the Biofuels Mobile Education Center.

Viking Speedway is located on County Road 82 at the Douglas County Fairgrounds. Viking Speedway opened in 1965. This year will be the 48th consecutive season of racing at Viking Speedway.
