WET GROUNDS FORCE SHARON TO POSTPONE OPEN PRACTICE & “SPRINGDURO 150” ENDURO TO A POSSIBLE LATER DATE
By Mike Leone
Hartford, OH April 4, 2014 Sharon Speedway has once again been forced to cancel this weekend’s open practice and “Springduro 150” Enduro that was scheduled for Saturday (April 5) with a make-up of Sunday. The event was originally scheduled for March 22, and was also lost to the weather last year. Stay tuned for a possible make-up date later this season.
“We made progress earlier in the week with the warm and dry weather, but the last two days of rain on top of the saturated grounds from the harsh winter was just too much,” explained GM Dave Willoughby. “CNB Raceway in Clearfield, Pa. has an enduro next Saturday (April 12) that many of the racers will be participating in so we’ll just analyze everything and hope to bring the event back later in the season.”
Up next will be the 85th anniversary season opener on Saturday, April 19 at 7 p.m. featuring the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply DIRTcar Big-Block Modifieds, Barris Supply RUSH Late Models, Summit Racing Equipment Modifieds, Gibson Insurance Agency Stock Cars, HTMA/Precise Racing Products Econo Mods, and the Deforest Used Parts Mini Stocks.
Fans don’t forget that coming up on Saturday, May 17 will be Fan Appreciation Night with FREE grandstand admission! The event was a huge success last summer and has been moved up earlier in the season this year.
