Wednesday's steady rain doomed the chance of the Rice Lake Speedway opening its season this Saturday, April 20. For the second straight week, race track co-owners Dave Adams and Mitch Hansen have postponed the racing opener, originally scheduled for April 13.
The rescheduled season opener now for stock car racing is Saturday, April 27.
Adams said earlier this week that the 1/3-mile oval track was in good shape, but that other facilities at the speedway on Rice Lake's north side were wet. Adams said any significant amount of rain which was predicted for mid-week would put the April 20 opener in jeopardy.
