“We’re thrilled to have a great company like Sage Fruit involved with the Osky Challenges,” says promoter Terry McCarl. “Their support and commitment to sprint car racing over the years has been awesome, and we’re proud to have them be a part of both of our events in Oskaloosa this year. We’re excited to have four different sprint car divisions for the first time, and know the fans will have a great time!”

Of course, in addition to the purses, great contingencies will be a part of both night’s events as well. Make your plans now for the Osky Challenges!

Changes in Ticket Sales

The top three rows in every section will be reserved. Previously, all seats were reserved in the grandstands. If you had tickets in 2017, you can renew starting now by calling 515 957-0020. Those fans have until Tuesday, April 17 to reserve their tickets.

“It was turning into a real mess at the ticket office with all reserved seats the day of the show,” says Terry. “This will help everything flow smoother in the ticket line on race day, and give fans the option of where they’d like to sit.”

Tickets will be $30 for Monday and $25 for Tuesday. Children’s tickets will be $15.

Infield Party Passes will be $20, with children admitted for $5 there. No vehicles over eight feet tall are admitted in the infield. Production vehicles only are allowed, and there is no scaffolding allowed.

If tickets for both days are purchased by Monday, July 30, grandstand tickets will be $50 for both days.
