Rain Stops Summer Nationals Opener


MECHANICSBURG, Pa. – Rain has forced World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series and Williams Grove Speedway officials to cancel the opening night of the two-day Summer Nationals event.

Showers moved into the area mid-afternoon yet the track crew was able to get the surface ready for racing on-time before another round of showers drenched the track, bringing an end to any attempt to race Friday night on the historic half-mile in central Pennsylvania.

The Outlaws return to Williams Grove on Saturday night for the previously rain-delayed Morgan Cup event. The Morgan Cup is a sterling silver traveling trophy that resides each year with the organization represented by the driver who wins the A-main. In the first two years, the trophy was won in a dash on behalf of the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series by Steve Kinser and Jason Sides.
