Holiday weekend draws fewer racers

Jason Berghorst

The July 4 weekend was relatively quiet for local dirt track drivers, crews and fans.
Three Rock County drivers raced at two area tracks over the holiday weekend.
Murray County Speedway in Slayton hosted seven classes of racing Friday night and I-90 Speedway near Hartford, South Dakota, staged five classes Saturday night.
