SALINA, Kan. – This week’s barrage of heavy rains and severe weather has forced officials to call off the Friday, May 8 races at Salina, Kan., Speedway.
More than four inches of rain has fallen at the speedway through Wednesday night with even more forecast through the rest of the week. With grounds already saturated there just isn’t an opportunity to get the track prep down and make sure everyone is comfortable before tomorrow night’s event.
The May 15 event will be run as scheduled and include the BSB Manufacturing NeSmith Late Models, 1st Class Chassis IMCA Modifieds, Coors Light IMCA Stock Cars, Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Northern SportMods, and M&H Motor IMCA Sport Compacts.
Glass Masters and Will Electric will once again be the night’s presenting sponsors.
This makes three rainouts on the schedule so far in 2015, a number that already eclipses all of 2014. To make up for this, an event has been added to the schedule on Aug. 28 and will feature Late Models, IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Northern SportMods, Auto House Mod Lites, and IMCA Hobby Stocks.
