PHOENIX – Officials of the National Dirt Racing League and Ohio’s Atomic Speedway have announced that the rained out Atomic Blast will be moved to July 25-26 utilizing the same format and pay structures.
The Roaring Knob Motorsports Complex event scheduled for July 25 has been postponed. The series also hopes that the July 26 date originally belonging to Tyler County Speedway can be moved to another date.
“This is the last thing that we wanted to do. But after looking at both schedules and seeing what was available we didn’t have really any options,” said NDRL Series Director Kelley Carlton. “We love Tyler County and what those guys are doing but economics and our business model dictates that we needed to make a change and get this event at Atomic in. The schedule is just so tight until the end of the year. We are going to work with Tyler to try and find them a suitable date that will fit into both of our schedules.”
Atomic Speedway owner and promoter Brad McCown is happy about the make-up date.
“The weather stuff is hard on us. Last weekend was really trying. But we have some great fans and drivers that supported us so we are very happy to be able to work it out to bring the NDRL back and have the race. We appreciate everyone’s cooperation in getting this make-up date worked out.”
