The Kewaunee County Promotions and Recreation Department could begin the process of finding a new promoter for the Luxemburg Speedway as soon as the end of the week after the former organizers stepped down on Monday. In a post on the Luxemburg Speedway Facebook page, Ron Cochrane and Eric Mahlik of Rock Em Entertainment thanked Kewaunee County officials, the fans, drivers, crews, and sponsors for their support during the last three years. According to Kewaunee County Promotions and Recreation Department Director Dave Meyer, the former promoters were up to date on their rent and simply declined to renew their three-year contract. Meyer hopes they can find a new promoter soon.
Rock Em Entertainment took over race promotion in 2016. Mahlik could not be reached for comment as of Monday morning.
