Q: Are you still racing tonight?2021-12-02T09:47:16-06:00

A: Our policy is that unless we have cancelled or announced a change, everything is on as scheduled. We will not make predictions on what will happen at any particular event either due to weather or other circumstances. In this day and age of social media and instant communications, a track saying things like “We probably won’t race” or “It’s not looking good, you probably shouldn’t drive XX hours” is the same as saying it’s cancelled. So unless we are officially cancelled, we will only give information that is already publicly available. We recommend you keep an eye on our Facebook page and website as any changes will be posted there as soon as they occur. @Dubuque Fairgrounds Speedway
