Rain Puts Halt To Tuscarora 50


PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Despite an attempt to outrun incoming wet weather by starting approximately 90 minutes earlier than previously scheduled, Mother Nature prevailed and made an appearance just after the first Tuscarora 50 heat race was called to staging.

With rain saturating the Port Royal Speedway surface, mixed with a forecast predicting heavy amounts of precipitation throughout the overnight hours, Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 and Port Royal Speedway officials were left with no choice but to postpone the 51st running of the Tuscarora 50 until Sunday, Sept. 9. The program will start from scratch with hot laps beginning at 5 p.m.

Trey Starks set the evening’s overall fast time before the rain took over. There were 53 cars entered for action.
