About Columbus 151 Speedway
The Columbus 151 Speedway is Wisconsin’s “family track” without a doubt. The track is home to many parent-child, husband-wife, sibling-sibling, and many other related teams. The track is especially honored to have third generation drivers Rikki and Bobbi Bishofberger racing on the ground their mother, father and grandfathers laid rubber on years ago.
The family atmosphere continues up into the stands where there is a safe playground for children and plenty of bench seating for families to enjoy the races together. Kids are important to the Speedway. The souvenir stand sells glow sticks, glow pops, and other fun things for the young ones.
Columbus 151 Speedway was the late Dick Moore's passion, and ownership is still maintained by his family, many of who serve the track in different capacities.
The track itself is a semi-banked asphalt oval, tricky for novice drivers to get accustomed to, but a power plant for veterans. Two definite grooves make side-by-side racing possible, and it is rare that the pole sitter wins the race with the powerful higher and lower lanes.
The Speedway is the perfect place to go for families looking for inexpensive fun on Friday nights. Qualifying does not start until 6:30, and racing until 8:00 so families can enjoy time after long hours at work and eat at the track. Even better, admission is only $9 for adults, $8 for teens and the grandparents, $4 for children 6-10 years old and the young ones are free.
Come out to the Columbus 151 Speedway Friday night to see Late Models, Street Stocks, Hobby Stocks, 4-Cylinder Bandits, and wild and crazy Backup Cars, occasionally joined by additional exhibition classes and traveling series.
