    Default Mississippi Thunder — $50,000 to win

    And $10K to win the two prelim shows. That’s a bunch of money available.

    Yet this event doesn’t even get a mention on social media. We are living in some crazy times in the DLM world.

    Not sure which social media sites you use. But, I've been seeing plenty of adds/info, the last couple months.

    WoO Late Models this weekend, at Mississippi Thunder Speedway, Fountain City, WI

    Be there Thursday, for my first visit.

    Much like cedar lake it's about location. I'll be there Friday and maybe Saturday. Checked on a hotel room in a nearby town and they want 450 for one night. No thanks.

    This coming weekend. WOO show at Mississippi Thunder Speedway in southwest Wisconsin. I think it’s owned by the Timms family (their son races supers). It’s a classy joint that produces great racing. Another one of those tracks I wish we had down here in the south. I’ve only seen it on TV. I’m jealous of the locals up there.

    Facebook, Twitter, 4m, etc.. And others. Other than WOO’s Facebook page, I’ve barely seen it mentioned. Looks like an awesome joint though. Please post your thoughts along the way.

    It should be a great show with the usmts being there as well. Definitely looking forward to making this my first race this year

    Is there something else going on in that area, or are the jacked up hotel prices solely because of this race weekend?

    It raced good last year. I remember Strickler and Sheppard trading slide jobs. Excited to watch on Dirtvision.

    To be completely honest, I'm not sure but I wouldn't be surprised if it were because of this event. The town is a smaller college town of less than 30k people so there isn't a lot of lodging there ro begin with.

    I didn’t know the USMTS series was part of this show too. That just further reinforces my original opinion. This will be a fantastic show. Even better than I initially thought.

    Idk where you're looking, but there's plenty in Winona starting at 90 a night....

    When I looked the other day it said 90 was in LA Crosse which is about an hour southeast of fountain city/winona. The only winona one I saw was 400. Maybe I didn't look on the right sight 🤔

    La Crosse Wisconsin is fairly close too, might be an option.

    It is what it is. I only live about an hour and a half from fountain city. So if I gotta drive, it's not the end of the world.
