Rain Stops Featherlite Fall Jamboree Opener


SPRING VALLEY, Minn. – The program scheduled for Thursday at Deer Creek Speedway as part of the 20th annual Featherlite Fall Jamboree┬áhas been canceled.

Rain throughout the night and into Thursday morning forced track officials to pull the plug on Thursday’s action.

Event organizers said that the weather forecast looks favorable after tonight so Friday and Saturday programs are on as scheduled.

“We will see what this weather this afternoon brings and make a final decision in regards to the Thursday race,” said Deer Creek Speedway’s Cole Queensland. “The rest of the weekend looks great.”

With dozens of campers and race teams already on site, entertainment in the beer garden will go on as scheduled Thursday night from 7-10 p.m. with Bob Schlief Music playing live music.

The Annual Club Car Jamboree Open golf tournament on Friday morning has also been canceled.

All other events for Friday and Saturday are on as scheduled with opening ceremonies and the first night of racing on Friday, followed by another night of marquee dirt modified madness on Saturday with USMTS Modifieds and the Iron Man Challenge featuring Out-Pace USRA B-Mods on the card.
