I made it to I-94 Sure Step Speedway for the annual King of the Dirt show. A terrific 177-car field was on hand aiming for the crown. I think I-94 is working to turn this into a big weekend annually. There were several campers in the lot. With Viking and Ogilvie taking the week off, the schedule sets up well.

First, I want to commend all of those involved – workers at I-94, Wissota officials, volunteers, whoever – for getting the Wissota 100 in.
