PONTOON BEACH SPRINT RACE POSTPONED;
A RESCHEDULE DATE WILL BE ANNOUNCED IN THE NEAR FUTURE!
Tonight’s (Friday) USAC AMSOIL National Sprint race at Tri-City Speedway in Pontoon Beach, Ill. has been postponed due to impending weather as a result of Tropical Storm Isaac. The race will be rescheduled in October.
The USAC Mopar National Midgets are slated at Tri-City Thursday through Saturday October 4-6 and Sprint racing will accompany all three nights at the 3/8-mile dirt oval.
“The rains have already reached the Tri-City area,” says USAC’s Jason McCord, “and the anticipated heavy rains throughout the day and night are expected to create unraceable conditions. We are pleased that USAC and race organizers Kevin and Tammy Gundaker are able to reschedule this important race in October, watch for all the details in the near future!
The AMSOIL USAC National Sprint cars are scheduled to compete tomorrow night (Saturday) at the Terre Haute (Ind.) Action Track in the annual “Jim Hurtubise Classic.”
