The Salute the Troops 100 on Saturday May 23 has become a traditional stop at Jefferson Speedway each Memorial Day Weekend. A multiple time Champion at ‘Wisconsin’s Action Track’, Casey Johnson recorded his first of two victories on his way to the 2019 Tour Title last May in a wild race that saw tight racing resulting in multiple three wide scenarios for position.
Starting life as a quarter mile dirt track, in 1952, with little but cornfields for boundaries, this track has been the home of Saturday night Racers, and fans, for many years. Over the years there have been many improvements. The track was paved, as a small quarter mile, with 6 degree banking at both ends, in 1964. The walls have progressed from cornfields, to guardrails to back-filled reinforced concrete, by 1981. The 1983 season saw the appearance of the tall yellow scoring tower, which served through the 1989 season.
