Full Moon Fever Hits Western Speedway

The Allterra Construction Night at the Races played host to the season opener for the Keg Late Model Series, as well as featuring the Richlock Rentals Non Winged Sprints, Galaxy Motors Stock Cars, IMS4 Mini Stocks, and OTRA. Another  good crowd spent their holiday weekend at Western Speedway for what would turn into one wild and long night.
