ORRVILLE, Ohio – Monday’s Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek event at Wayne County Speedway has been canceled because of rain.
Affecting an already saturated facility, a downpour just before the 2 o’clock hour, followed by a second downpour just before the 3 o’clock hour, left series and track officials with no choice but to cancel the program.
The Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will continue Ohio Sprint Speedweek on Tuesday at Sharon Speedway in Hartford, Ohio.
With unfavorable conditions a factor over the next 12 hours, All Star Circuit of Champions and Sharon Speedway officials will monitor the situation closely. If additional precipitation falls on the already-saturated Sharon Speedway facility, track officials will be forced to cancel the event. A final decision will be made by 9 a.m. on Tuesday.
In the event that Sharon Speedway should cancel their Ohio Sprint Speedweek program by 9 a.m., Wayne County Speedway will then step in and proceed with a Tuesday night program. Track and series officials will make a coordinated effort in spreading word of the venue change in a timely and efficient manner.
“We certainly appreciate everyone’s patience as we continue to work around Mother Nature. I think we can all agree that we are hungry to race. We are doing everything in our power to make those efforts a reality,” Eric Walls explained, All Star Circuit of Champions Race Director. “With Mother Nature impacting much of our schedule, we’ve taken it upon ourselves to do whatever it takes to give our teams an opportunity to compete. I greatly appreciate the cooperation put forth by the tracks, especially in helping us organize a potential last minute change in Tuesday’s schedule.”
