COLUMBUS JUNCTION, Iowa (April 18, 2024) – The 2024 racing season at CJ Speedway, located on the Louisa County Fairgrounds in Columbus Junction is about to see the first official green flag of the season.

The Louisa County Fair Board has hired Dan Keltner to be the track manager for the 2024 season.

He brings a lengthy background in racing not only as a driver but also as a track official to the post.

“I would like to thank the Louisa County Fair Board for this opportunity and I would really like to thank all the sponsors that have come on board for the 24 season.” Keltner stated. “We have put together a great schedule and we are excited to get the season underway.”
