(Orrville, OH)…After a season high 43 cars jammed the pit area Saturday night at McKean County Raceway’s “Manufacturers Night”, part two of the “$50,000 End of Summer Blowout” presented by Sunoco Race Fuels for the Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC RUSH Dirt Late Model Touring Series succumbed to Mother Nature on Sunday at Wayne County Speedway.
After a late morning and midday break, showers resumed late afternoon and with the threat of more in the forecast, the decision was made to cancel the event that was also to include the All Star Circuit of Champions Sprint Cars. Several teams were already on the grounds with many more on the way for what was going to be the first ever Crate Late Model event in the history of the renowned Ohio speedway. Stay tuned for a possible make-up date.
The Sweeney Tour will be off this coming weekend, but will return for a doubleheader on September 12-13. Sharon Speedway will host the “Gary Knollinger Memorial” on Friday the 12th as part of the “Apple Festival Nationals” followed by Pittsburgh’s PA Motor Speedway on Saturday the 13th as part of the annual “Pittsburgher”. The Pittsburgh event will also include the rescheduled “Steel City Roulette” drawing that was rained out on June 8 for the “Steel City 100”.
