DUNDEE, NY — official speedway release — Yates County Speedway has cancelled tonight’s Northeast Showdown for the Race of Champions Modifieds and Crate Sportsman.
The race has been rescheduled for Tuesday, June 3rd at 7:30 p.m. With showers and thunderstorms in the area and more forecasted for this evening, the decision was made early to avoid unnecessary travel for the race teams and fans.
“We made the decision early based on all available weather information we could look at”, said Promoter Dan Harpell. “We have teams travelling from as far away as New Jersey and in this day and age of high fuel prices, it makes the most sense to make an early decision and save everyone a bunch of travel expenses.”
“It’s never and easy decision on days like today. If you cancel and the weather clears out you’re wrong. If you try to run and it rains, you’re wrong. It’s a no win situation so you can only do what you think is right and move on to the next event.”
The race has been rescheduled for Tuesday, June 3rd at 7:30 p.m., which is three weeks from today. There is nothing else on the schedule on that date.
This has been one of the worst Spring’s in recent memory and many tracks have only had one or two events up to this point. Yates County is no exception as only one event has been contested thus far in 2014. The weather has not been good for anyone. Hopefully things will begin to straighten out as we move closer to Summer.
After weeks of anticipation, we will have to wait just three more weeks to feel the rumble of the Modifieds at the all new Yates County Speedway. Make plans now to attend the Northeast Showdown for the Race of Champions Modifieds on Tuesday, June 3rd. Once again they will be joined by the Crate Sportsman. Race time is 7:30 p.m.
Yates County Speedway will return to action this Friday night with a full show of all classes on the card. Weekly action includes the Crate Sportsman, 602 Sportsman Spirits, 305 Sprints, Crate/BRP/RUSH Late Models, IMCA Modifieds, Street Stocks, 4-Cylinder Stocks, Bandits and the Front Wheel Drive division. Heats will kick off on Friday May 16th at 7:00pm.
