Mercer, PA (March 26, 2013):  Due to wet conditions after the last snowfall, the Chiller Thriller has been postponed until Saturday, April 6, at Mercer Raceway Park. Gates will open at 4 p.m. An autograph session will take place at 6, with racing at 7.

“We are hoping that the weather will break, and start to warm up, and have some nice warm sunny days to help in drying the grounds. Right now all of the grounds – pits, track, and parking areas are a swampy muddy mess,” said track manager Frank Benic. “This is always one of our most anticipated races of the season.”
