WCGA Hosts Night at the Races
Earn free entry, food, refreshments at Madison International Speedway August 15

Wisconsin corn growers head to the races Friday, Aug. 15, for a special night of networking and entertainment at Madison International Speedway featuring 17-year-old Michael Raskovic driving the #14 American Ethanol Truck, powered by 98% ethanol fuel, in the American Ethanol SuperTruck series sponsored by the Wisconsin Corn Growers Association (WCGA). 
 The Wisconsin Corn Growers E-15 Bandit Challenge race for young guns, using 15 percent ethanol fuel, also runs that night. The speedway is a paved oval a short distance from Wisconsin Highway 138, near Oregon, Wis., billed as the fastest half-mile track in the state. Former champions at the track include Matt Kenseth, Rich Bickle, Travis Kvapil and Dick Trickle.
Corn growers can earn free admission to this inaugural racing event by recruiting one new WCGA member between now and August 12. Along with free admission, attendees get VIP parking, special seating, a meal, drinks, pit tours and a chance to race around the track with a qualified driver. Additional free event tickets can be earned for every extra two new members recruited beyond the initial one. The top 10 new-member recruiters and their guests (one per member) will be able to watch the evening’s races in the air-conditioned comfort of a VIP suite and one lucky attendee will be selected at random to race around the track with a driver. Cost for current Wisconsin Corn Grower Association members who don’t recruit new members is $15/person. Non-members can buy a ticket to this special racing event for $25.


The WCGA event starts at 5 p.m. with refreshments. Racing starts at 6:30 p.m., and the event will continue until the races end. Golf-cart transfer is available to and from the parking lot for those who need it. To register for WCGA Night at the Races and to request membership forms send an email to wicorn@centurytel.net or call the WCGA office at 262-495-2232.
