Legal fight could stall Black Hills race season

RAPID CITY (AP) -- A money dispute could delay the race season at the Black Hills Speedway.

Shane Liebig operates the half-mile oval track. He is suing the speedway's former owners.

Liebig says Ed and Lori Kirchoff of Gillette, Wyo., provided the money for him to buy the track at auction two years ago.

The Kirchoffs say Liebig is behind in his payments, but Liebig's lawsuit disputes that.

Ed Kirchoff tells the media that the track's racing season will start on time under new management. The track's website says the first races are May 4.

The Kirchoffs also operate the Gillette Thunder Speedway in Wyoming.
