Broken record: Rain cancel Salina Speedway races for tonight

By Dusty Wiegert

SALINA, Kan. (June 5) — What was an optimistic outlook for the week on Monday has turned into another humble Friday as heavy overnight rains will force Salina Speedway to remain silent yet again tonight (Friday).

More than three inches of precipitation has fallen since midnight with more in the forecast. Promoter Tommy Hendrickson surveyed the damage early Friday morning to find the pit area looking like the Everglades, while the track and infield probably didn’t look much better.

Racing is scheduled to resume next Friday, June 12. The Auto House Mod Lite division will highlight the evening with a makeup feature for the May 22 rainout first, along with a complete show. Also in action will be the 1st Class Chassis IMCA Modifieds, Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Northern SportMods, Budweiser IMCA Hobby Stocks, and M&H Motors IMCA Sport Compacts.
