JEFFERSON, S.D. (April 25) – A strong, unexpected Thursday morning rainstorm coupled with rain forecast for Friday evening has forced the cancellation of the South Dakota Sprint Car Nationals.
Park Jefferson Speedway track officials made the call this morning after reviewing the track conditions and the forecast.
“With drivers coming from great distances, we felt that we had to make the call early enough for the race teams. In addition, the forecast for Friday evening has been getting worse with every new forecast and it looked nearly impossible to race Saturday even if we got the Friday portion in,” said track owner Adam Adamson.
Fans will receive a complete refund for their advance tickets and drivers will receive a complete refund on their registration fees back to the credit card that the fees were charged to in six to 10 days.
Park Jefferson Speedway hopes to kick off the 2019 IMCA Speedway Motors Weekly Racing season next Saturday, May 4 with Z98 Night, featuring IMCA Modifieds, IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Cars, IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars, IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks, Karl Kustoms Northern SportMods and Mach-1 Sport Compacts.
