Poor Weather Causes Saturday Cancellation, Track Announces Rain Date

June 1, 2013 (12:00 pm)
Delaware Speedway PR

Tonight’s racing at Delaware Speedway has been cancelled due to the weather.  The GAW Recycling Enduro and Bone Stock Chaos Cars were initially scheduled to run at 7:00 pm.  Although both series are technically capable of running in the rain, with poor weather moving into the region the speedway does not believe the event will be successful.  In response to the rainout the track is activating its September 14 rain date which will feature the same race lineup that was scheduled for today.

Weather has been having a significant impact on the track’s fans and drivers especially with cold temperatures at the opening events of the year and, most recently, Friday night’s rain delay.  Delaware Speedway would like to extend its thanks to drivers and fans for their continued dedicated support of local racing.

Today’s race was set to debut a fresh format for the Saturday program which included a tighter distance for the Enduro series, a fifty-lap race for the Bone Stocks, and the Ladies Bone Stock event being run as part of the regular program starting at 7:00 pm.  The event also was set to feature a number of new Bone Stocks which will see some of Delaware’s top drivers behind the wheel in vehicles prepared by students at local high schools.

The refreshed lineup and High School Challenge will have to wait for the next Enduro & Bone Stock event on Saturday, June 22.  The event is an evening race with a 7:00 pm start time.  South End Truck Centre, which was originally the sponsor of tonight’s event, will be holding their night on this date.
The next racing at Delaware Speedway is Friday, June 7.  The racing lineup features the FT Garage Late Models, Demar Aggregates Trucks, and Open-Ontario Four Cylinder Championships.  The track is also gearing up for the upcoming NASCAR Canadian Tire Series weekend featuring the EMCO 200 (June 14-15).  Early bird tickets are available at a discount until next week.
