It's been a very fun racing season out at Nodak Speedway this summer, and it will continue this Sunday as the Dakota Classic Modified Tour comes to town. The tour's been around for a quarter century and delivers some of the most competitive racing around. Tour director John Gartner is excited to come to the Magic City, a place with a long history with the tour.
"Nodak's been a part since day one, and I was just up there last night. They got their track finally in good shape from the flood. They struggled a little bit with the flood, and I tell you, it was really fast last night, so Minot is looking exceptionally good this year," Gartner says. "They used all the dirt for dike material and whenever you take the top part of the race track that has the clay on it. Whenever you do some mixing up sometimes it can not come back together quite right but they hauled in a bunch of clay. It's the best I've ever seen it up there. Minot's ready to go."
The tour will start tomorrow in Jamestown and along with Minot, it has stops in Estevan, Williston, Dickinson and Mandan.
