As is tradition, a frostbuster race will take the lead for the opening season of the Friday night races at the Marshalltown Speedway.
The season opener April 11 drawing 220 cars from 11 states and Canada was originally scheduled for April 4. The event was postponed and moved back a week due to weather conditions resulting in the lack of time to prepare the track, said Toby Kruse, Marshalltown Speedway promoter.
Until Sept. 26, the Marshalltown Speedway will hold different races, with three highlighted events.

The Marshalltown Speedway begins its season April 11. Throughout the spring and summer the Marshalltown Speedway will hold different races every Friday night.
"We'll have the USMT Modifieds, Deery Brothers late models and the World Nationals at the end of the year," Kruse said "That's like 250 racers from literally all over the country and Canada. It's just a pretty cool spectacle."
Kruse said ticket prices are reasonable and food prices are low.
"We try to keep the prices down so people can afford that as their Friday night destination," Kruse said. "Every race Friday night is actually really good."
