A meeting for Tuesday has been set for a group that has previously expressed interest in taking over the promoter position at Luxemburg Speedway. For the last month, the Kewaunee County Promotions & Recreation department has been searching for any group interested in taking the spot. Depending on Tuesday’s meeting, the department will either make a recommendation toward putting together a contract or send out another request for proposals. Regardless of the result, Promotions & Recreation Director Dave Meyers said the toughest challenge facing the new promoter will be the initial set-up.
The search officially began early October after previous promoters Eric Mahlik and Ron Cochrane announced their intention to step down from the position after three years. The track drew an average attendance of 1,250 over those three years and brought in about 125 cars each event.
