MECHANICSBURG, Pa. – As a result of afternoon rains coupled with a tornado watch, Williams Grove Speedway has been forced to cancel its Friday night racing program.
Track management was hopeful that the rains would pass in time to still allow for action on Friday night and made a great effort to keep the surface raceable, but the amount of rain reached an intolerable level shortly after 4:30 p.m.
The rain out means the track has now lost the entire moth of April to weather.
With hopes that May will bring more favorable conditions for racing, the oval expects to be in action next Friday night, May 3 when it hosts the ASCS/URC Battle At The Groves for 360 sprints, along with the 410 sprints, at 8 p.m.
National stars on the 360 circuit will compete in the event, slated to be carried on MAVTV.
Originally slated for Easter weekend, May 3 will again find the oval hosting the Hoseheads Hoppers Giveaway At The Gate for kids.
