St. Croix Valley Raceway excites adults and children with rubber-burning action during timed car races around an outdoor track. On September 16, five classes of racecars including Sprint, Vintage, and Pure Stocks duke it out during three hours of racing followed by a round of Monopoly at the finish line between the drivers. The vehicular quintet returns on September 17 for another three hours of qualifying and feature racing accompanied by an autograph session. An all-day event on October 1 includes wrestling from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m., two hours of racing, and a daredevil performance from the Gallagher Stunt Team, with three different death-defying stunts such as mounting a moving car with a novelty-size saddle. With free admission on October 1 only, children in Halloween costumes can trick or treat down the track during a race intermission, collecting candy in orange pumpkin baskets or discarded tires.
