WEST SALEM, Wis. (WKBT) -

There will be a new division in 2014 at the La Crosse Fairgrounds Speedway.

Street Stocks, the newest class of cars, are built similar to the small Hornets, but they are larger, six cylinder cars, strictly OEM stock, with a minimum 106 inch wheelbase.

"The weekly racing menu will consist of the traditional divisions, the Late Models, Sportsmen, and Thunderstox. But each week will mix in a different side dish. An additional division or divisions, including the Hornets, Outlawz, Figure-8, or our new division, the Street Stocks, will give fans an extra thrill," said Speedway President Gregg McKarns in a press release.

Weekly racing will begin on Saturday nights starting May 17th and will run through August 23rd.

There are a few key dates to highlight: the Smash-O-Rama on Saturday, June 14th, a full racing program on July 3rd with Fireworks, the Eve of Destruction on September 6th, and the 45th Oktoberfest will conclude the season October 2nd-5th. In addition, the Street Drags will take place the second Friday night of the month starting in May. Additional events will take place on Friday, July 18th during the Interstate Fair and the Speedway's final event of 2014, the 300' Bracket Nationals on Saturday, October 11th.

The NASCAR Late Models will run double feature nights three times, having two 20 lap races on the same night. The first night is May 31, the second during the LaCrosse Interstate Fair on July 19th, and the third will be on "The Fantastic Five" night, August 16th.
