SOMERSET, Ky. — Officials with the Schaeffer’s Oil MARS Racing Series and Windy Hollow Speedway in Owensboro, Ky., have mutually agreed to cancel the event scheduled for Aug. 2.
After consideration regarding the possibility of a low car count, track promoter Jimmy Westerfield and series promoter Chris Tilley have mutually agreed that it wouldn’t be best to have the event in 2019.
“When Jimmy and I spoke we felt it best to cancel the event. There’s just not any Super Late Models in the Owensboro area anymore and we didn’t feel that it was fair to the race fans in that area if we couldn’t get enough cars to put on a good show,” said Tilley. “Jimmy and his crew are battling weather and other variables that several other promoters have faced this season and we wish him nothing but the best and we really look forward to the opportunity of working with them in the years to come.”
The next Schaeffer’s Oil MARS Racing Series event will be Aug. 3 at Brownstown (Ind.) Speedway, paying $10,000-to-win during the 15th annual Hall of Fame Classic.
