RAIN STOPS RoC AT WYOMING COUNTY
50TH ANNIVERSARY SHOW AT DUNN TIRE NEXT UP ON JUNE 28TH
Early afternoon thunderstorms that rolled through
the Perry, NY area on Saturday afternoon left enough moisture behind
which made the task of running the races on Saturday impossible.
Officials of the Wyoming County International Speedway waited as
long as they could to make a decision due to the quality field of
Race of Champions Dart Asphalt Modifieds that had already assembled.
Unfortunately the decision to cancel the show was made a couple of
hours ahead of the scheduled starting time due to saturated grounds
from the rain.
At this time no make – up date has been announced.
Up next for the Race of Champions Dart Asphalt Modified Tour is
their first of two visits this year to the Dunn Tire Raceway Park.
The track formerly known as the Lancaster Speedway holds a special
place in the history of not only asphalt Modified racing but also in
the history of the Race of Champions Dart Asphalt Modified Tour.
On June 28th at Dunn Tire is the 50th Anniversary Show for the
track and a 100 lap Modified feature will take place. A stellar
field of asphalt Modifieds is expected to be in competition on this
night as the RoC Tour regulars will be hooking up with the local
favorites who call Dunn Tire home.
