Wild Card Wednesday at the Hamilton County Fair in Webster City, Iowa, is coming up this Wednesday night, July 25, with big money up for grabs for racers in all classes on the historic half-mile Hamilton County Speedway driven by Spangler Automotive.

When drivers check in we will be handing out some playing cards to drivers. The driver with the best hand at the end of the night will win a prize. The top three hands will win some extra cash.

The Hamilton County Speedway and Hamilton County Fair will also be adding $500 to the class with the most cars and will be doling out a little more cash throughout the field in that class.

This night will be Summit USRA Weekly Racing Series national points in all USRA-sanctioned classes. There is no entry fee and no license is required on Wednesday night. We will be running transponders, so bring yours or rent one at the track.

Be sure to come out to the new and improved Hamilton County Speedway this Wednesday night for some great racing action.

Pit gates open at 4 p.m., grandstands open at 4:30, the drivers meeting starts at 6:20 and hot laps begin at 6:40 with racing to follow.

General admission for ages 16 and older is $12, youth (6-15) are $8 and kids (5 & Under) are free. Fans can also take advantage of the Family Pack where two adults and two youth get in for $32—a savings of $8. Pit passes are $30, youth (6-10) are $20 and kids (5 & under) are free.
