THUNDERSHOWERS AND HEAVY RAIN POSTPONE RACE
OF CHAMPIONS DART ASPHALT MODIFIED TOUR EVENT AT DUNN TIRE UNTIL AUGUST 9TH
morning thundershowers that featured heavy rain and dangerous
lightning on Saturday morning in the Lancaster, NY area was enough
to force officials at Dunn Tire Motorsports Park to postpone their
highly anticipated 50th Anniversary Show until Saturday August 9th.
Its shame that the show had to be postponed stated RoC
Administrative Director Andrew Harpell. Because the entire staff
at Dunn Tire really worked overtime in getting everything set for
this very special show. But its the sign of the times unfortunately
in racing today with high traveling costs due to the cost of fuel.
We already had one situation earlier this month when Wyoming County
rained out and everyone towed there and spent huge sums of money
traveling. In this situation Dunn Tire management made the decision
early enough in the day to save some of the teams money.
The next show on the Race of Champions Dart Asphalt Modified Tour
is a Saturday July 19th race at the Oswego Speedway. That will be
followed up by a show at the Mahoning Valley Speedway on Saturday
