Dirt Late Model Mini Series Returns to Action May 25 at Tri City Speedway
AUSTIN, Texas (May 17, 2021) — Officials with the Castrol® FloRacing Night in America and Marshalltown Speedway have made the decision to postpone the series event that was scheduled for this Wednesday, May 19.
Saturated facilities along with a wet forecast for this week prompted the postponement.
“We’ve had over an inch of rain since Friday, and we have a 50%-80% chance of rain every day through the end of the week. With no drying and more rain on the way, we were left with no choice but to postpone,” said Marshalltown Speedway promoter, Toby Kruse. “This is a bummer, and we hope to find a date to reschedule the event later this year.”
While anticipation was at a high for a rare Super Late Model event at the famed Iowa oval, officials with the Castrol® FloRacing Night in America agreed that a postponement was the right call.
“Given the fact that the facility is already wet, and more rain is to come this is the right decision. Add in the fact that some teams were towing over 12 hours to be there, we didn’t want to waste anybody’s time or money,” series general manager, Ben Shelton noted. “We greatly appreciate everyone’s support of the series and now we are getting geared up for next Tuesday at Tri City Speedway.”
Anyone, who purchased tickets for this Wednesday’s event at Marshalltown Speedway will be refunded via MyRacePass.
Castrol® FloRacing Night in America now turns its attention to Tri City Speedway (Pontoon Beach, Ill.), where the series will resume action on Tuesday, May 25.
