By CLS, 10/29/17, 5:45PM CDT


For Immediate Release- Cedar Lake Speedway is proud to announce its 2018 outdoor event schedule.  Without question, the 2018 schedule brings more action and huge events than any other in the Speedway’s 60-year history.  2018 features 6 classes of cars racing at the track at least 13 times (Midwest Modifieds, Pro Stocks, Modifieds, Late Models, Traditional Sprint Cars, and Limited Late Models).  UMSS wing sprint cars will also visit 9 times in 2018; the most ever! Highlights of the schedule are as follows:

NEW in 2018:  Creating “bookends” for the season, CLS will kick off 2018 with the same race and format of the popular season ending Legendary 100.  This huge event will boast a three-day show with complete race programs each night, 9 classes of cars, and a total purse of nearly $100,000.

NEW in 2018:  Leveraging the success of the 6 race NASCAR Dash series and to support the new Limited Late Model class, the UMSS traditional sprint cars, and the exciting UMSS wing sprint car series, CLS has created the CLS SHOOTOUT for these three divisions.  They will race a 6-race series just like the NASCAR Dash and be competing for point fund monies with the same point format as the Dash.  The first race for this series will be on April 21st so get your cars ready now!

For the 4th consecutive year, the 2018 season will again feature the NASCAR Dash series for Midwest Modifieds, Pro Stocks, Modifieds, and Open Late Models.  This series will kick off earlier than in the past with the first race taking place on April 14th.

NEW in 2018:  Everyone loves a buy one, get one free deal.  Now you can experience BOGO night at Cedar Lake.  We will be offering buy one, get one FREE on May 5th for tickets as well as select food and souvenir items.  Racing will be great on the track with Limited Late Models, Traditional Sprint Cars, and A-Modifieds!

The very popular School Bus Race will take place on May 12.  Get there early as the Speedway will be full.

Pack the track night offers FREE admission on Memorial day weekend and the very next weekend (June 2nd) features the popular Triple Crown with $3,000 to win Late Models, $3,000 to win Modifieds, and $3,000 to win 410 Outlaw Sprint Cars.

The Annual MASTERS event in June will again present a $50,000 to win Modified special.  Based on fan feedback from the inaugural race last year, we have added Late Models to the schedule making this one weekend you surely want to attend!

For its 4th consecutive year, July 6th and 7th features a 2-day sprint car fans dream as the World of Outlaw 410 Winged Warriors invade the Speedway with a complete race each night.

Believe it or not, the USA NATIONALS on August 2nd – 4th is now in its 31st year!  The event continues to get bigger and better.  Last year’s feature race was priceless – mark your calendars!
