Superior may have canceled their city fireworks, but Northlanders were still able to celebrate the Fourth of July.  


Saturday evening Gondik Law Speedway hosted the final day of the Great Lakes Border Battle.

Crash Carlson, director of the Gondik Law Speedway, said the fourth annual event is a big one for drivers.

"This one pays a lot more money to the drivers. It's a big payday for them. They race three days and you've got awards that you give them for the three days and a bigger purse at the end," said Carlson.

The dirt track race offered a complete show with six different series.

Drivers took off in modifieds, super stocks, midwest modifieds, mod-fours, pure stocks or hornets.

Carlson said it's an event fit for the whole family, "we've got kids as low as twelve years old racing here. The whole family is racing, there's like five people in the family that are racing and they cover every class."
