Arnie Knepper Memorial Washed Out


BELLEVILLE, Ill. – Friday’s 28th annual Arnie Knepper Memorial featuring the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League and POWRi Engler Machine & Tool 600cc Outlaw Micro League has been cancelled due to rainfall.

POWRi and Belle-Clair Speedway officials are actively seeking a date for rescheduling.

“The rain gauge at the track shows three inches of rain,” said Brian Thompson of Belle-Clair Speedway. “This spring hasn’t been kind to racing in the Midwest.”

Saturday’s race at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 and Sunday’s race at Jacksonville Speedway are both still on.
