Petty USMTS Show Scrapped By Wet Forecast


PETTY, Texas – Wednesday’s Summit USMTS Southern Series event at 82 Speedway has been canceled due to unfavorable weather in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

“It’s just not in the cards for us to host this event tonight with this forecast,” an official from the track noted. “Mother Nature has not been kind to the racing world this season. Hopefully things will snap back to a more reasonable status soon.”

The USMTS visited the former East Texas Speedway on June 25, 2015, with Philip Houston picking up the win. For now, he will remain undefeated at the sweeping 1/3-mile high-banked dirt oval.

On Thursday, the Monarch Motor Speedway in Wichita Falls hosts the Summit USMTS Southern Series. After two weather delays in 2019 already, officials are hoping the third time’s the charm for the USMTS return to the former Red River Speedway.
