MARS Pulls Plug On Weekend Races


PADUCAH, Ky. — This weekend’s MARS vs UMP Challenge races at Paducah Inte’l Raceway in Paducah, Ky., and Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 in Pevely, Mo., have been canceled.

The Meramac River that feeds the creek that runs over the entrance to Federated Auto Parts Raceway is already high and the forecasted rain (currently at 70%) for Saturday June 1st is forcing officials to cancel this race.

Additionally, MARS and track officials at Paducah International Raceway have taken into consideration the travel time and diesel fuel expense faced by series drivers and the forecasted rain (currently at 50%) for Friday May 31 and are canceling Friday’s race as well.
