WILD WEATHER CUTS NIGHT SHORT

by Tommy Goudge (July 19, 2013) –  97 drivers signed in to race on Autograph Night presented by Jones Brown Insurance and Evers Financial at Ohsweken Speedway on Friday, but severe weather caused 3 of the 4 scheduled feature races to be postponed. A brief rain shower at the end of the Gale’s Auto Aftermarket Bomber feature caused a brief delay. While work on the track surface was successful, it was ultimately decided that the safety of the fans and competitors was most important. Due to lightning and impending heavy rain, track management decided to cancel the remainder of the event. A storm did indeed hit the speedway minutes later, bringing heavy rain and lightning, and causing a power outage.

The autograph session planned for intermission has been rescheduled to next Friday night (July 26, while the incomplete features will be run at later dates: The Affordable Towing and Recovery Thunder Stocks will run their 20 lap feature on August 9, while the Corr/Pak Merchandising Sprint Cars will run their rescheduled feature on August 23, and the HRW Automotive Mini Stocks will complete their 15 lap feature on August 30. Each division will run both their rescheduled race and their regularly scheduled feature on the same night.

According to the Ohsweken Speedway rain out policy 7 races were completed, and the event is considered official, therefore no rain checks will be issued.

The 50/50 number has been drawn. The winning ticket number is 227555 on a yellow ticket. The prize of $427.50 can be claimed at Styres Gas Bar.
