Oktoberfest races to decide points titles


West Salem, WISCONSIN (WXOW)  It is one of the most prestigious small track racing events in the Midwest.

The 43rd annual Okotberfest Races return to the La Crosse Speedway starting Thursday.

On Wednesday, drivers put some final preparations on the final practice day before the 4-day event begins.

One of highlights will be tomorrow's 40-lap Nascar Late Models feature.

Shawn Pfaff leads Todd Korish by two measly points.

Thursday night's feature will decide the season points champ.

"The pressure is off me. All the pressure is on Shawn. I get to go run as hard as a I want. He's got to worry about what I'm doing. I don't have that pressure anymore. If we win it, we win it," Korish said.

500 racers in 18 divisions will entertain fans through Sunday.
