FROGGY 44 TRIBUTE TO MELVIN WALKER THIS SATURDAY, JUNE 29TH AT COTTAGE GROVE SPEEDWAY!

This Saturday the Kiefer Compacts will pay tribute to the late Mel Walker in this year's Froggy 44! Mel was a huge supporter of a lot of things here at Cottage Grove Speedway before what was then known as the Hornet class started, but when that class took off Mel found himself happiest racing in the 4 cylinder class along with his wife and many close friends, some of which still race in what is today called the Kiefer Compacts! They, as well as the staff here are honored to once again run this race in his honor!
This year we had a great family step up and not only pay the top prize but also purchase lap #44! The other 43 laps are still available to purchase, if you would like to purchase a lap please call Heather at 541-729-8666. All Lap money will go back into the purse for this race by adding to positions or paying out additional bonuses!
The Format and current payout can be found at the bottom of this article. Please note this is a sanctioned IMCA Sport Compact race and all cars must be registered with IMCA.
In addition to Kiefer Compacts Saturday nights racing action will feature Late Models, Wheeless Trailer Modifieds, Roadhouse Billiards & Brew Sportmods, & Street Stocks!
It's a busy week of racing here at Cottage Grove Speedway with Midweek Mayhem on Wednesday, Karts on Friday, and the Froggy 44 on Saturday! We can't wait to see you at the races!!
