LINCOLN, Ill. – Saturated grounds from several days of rain have forced the cancellation of the Sunday’s POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League Illinois Speedweek event.

Rains throughout the day on Saturday, in addition to another wave of overnight rain into Sunday proved to be too much for the quarter-mile facility.

Pit parking in addition to the horse track that surrounds the quarter-mile track are overly saturated, forcing the cancellation.

The race at Lincoln was slated to be the finale of Illinois Speedweek. Only one race scheduled as part of Illinois Speedweek took place, with Logan Seavey winning at Fayette County Speedway in Brownstown, Ill., on June 13.

Seavey also won a make-up feature at Jacksonville (Ill.) Speedway on June 14 before rain washed out the Illinois Speedweek feature the same night.
