Rained Out 9/11

Oakshade Raceway officials made a valiant effort to get the track run in for racing tonight, but due to the persistent light drizzle on top of the mess left from earlier rains officials eventully made the call to cancel the night’s racing program. Rain checks will be valid for any of the remaining racing events this season.

Since tonight’s racing program was cancelled, next week’s show (September 18) will be packed full of racing excitement. It will be Season Championship Night for the Bombers and Hornets. The Sportsman Twin 25’s will be run as scheduled, but will not be an Oakshade point event. The Season Championship Night for Sportsmen will now be September 25. The Little Guy 33 for the UMP Late Models will also be added to next week’s schedule as well. Gates open at 4pm with racing at 7pm.
