SELINSGROVE, PA – Aug. 26, 2012 – Late-afternoon thunderstorms drenched Selinsgrove Speedway on Sunday, forcing the cancelation of the historic central Pennsylvania track’s highly anticipated World of Outlaws Late Model Series event.
Forty-two cars were unloaded in the pit area and ready for action when the skies darkened and ultimately unloaded on the sprawling half-mile oval, prompting Selinsgrove promoter Charlie Paige to call off the evening’s Jeff’s Auto Body & Recycling 50.
With no suitable date available on the WoO LMS schedule for a return to Selinsgrove this season, Paige and WoO LMS officials will look to the 2013 season to present the national tour’s first-ever race at the speedway.
The rainout was the second in as many nights for the WoO LMS, which had its Saturday-night event at Winchester (Va.) Speedway canceled due to wet weather.
The WoO LMS will be back in action on Wednesday night (Aug. 29) at Little Valley (N.Y.) Speedway.
