For Immediate Release
By Mike Swanger
Rain that began on Friday along with below normal temps and windy conditions continued into early Saturday morning forcing the Flory’s to cancel the race action at Wayne County Speedway for Saturday night. It is the second time this season that rain has interfered with the racing and both nights had a double header action with the Sprint Cars as this was to be a NRA 360 Sprint race along with the Pine Tree Towing & Recovery Sprints. The McKenzie Concrete Super Stocks and the CORBON Ammunition Modifieds were on the race card. At this time, there is no make up date for the NRA 360 Sprints. The other rain out came when the Great Lakes Sprint Series (GLSS) 360 Sprints were in town but rain started after the gates were open and cancelled that event also.
Race action is scheduled for next Saturday, June 5th with round two of the King of the County Sprint series that will pay $3,500 to win. Back on April 17th, Dean Jacobs scored the 1st King of the County series win. Along with points for the King of the County points, the Pine Tree Towing & Recovery Sprints, the Malcuit Tavern Super Late Models, the McKenzie Concrete Super Stocks, the CORBON Ammunition Modifieds and the JOYRIDE Transport Mini Stocks will all be chasing the O’Reilly’s Auto Parts ‘Race to the Championship’ points.
On Monday June 14th, the FloRacing All Star Sprints will return to ‘Orrville’s Historic Oval’ for the annual Ohio Sprint Speedweek show and the Duffy Smith Memorial paying $6,000 to win. Cap Henry was the winner last season with other winners in the past including Sheldon Haudenschild twice, Rico Abreu, Kyle Larson and Aaron Reutzel. The 305 Race Saver Sprints will make their 1st appearance ever at WCS on that evening also.
Gates will open at 3 pm with hot laps and qualifying at 6 pm and racing at 7 pm for both shows
