PHOENIX – Officials of the National Dirt Racing League and Batesville (Ark.) Motor Speedway announced today that the Bad Boy 98 event slated for late June has been postponed.
After conversations between BMS Promoter Mooney Starr and NDRL owner John Kennedy about events which were now conflicting, the conclusion was to postpone the current weekend and look for dates which make more sense and better serves the interests of fans and racers.
“Right now when you look around at schedules there is just too much going on that would take away from the Bad Boy,” said NDRL owner John Kennedy. “We want this to be a successful event and we just felt we needed to do something different. We really hate to make a change like this but after talking with Mooney I came to realize that it made the most sense for everyone involved to look at different dates going forward to grow the event. Our hope is to always do what is best for our drivers and fans. Mooney is one of the most successful promoters in the mid-south and he obviously understands his market better than anyone else. So we will look forward to working toward the future and growing with Batesville and the Bad Boy 98 event.”
Batesville Motor Speedway will be refunding all money for ticket purchases that came through Batesville Motor Speedway. Please contact NDRL for any tickets that were purchased through their organization.
