Orr Heating & AC June 15th Canceled
Over three inches of rain have fallen on the speedway in last twenty-four hours leaving a large portion of the infield under water and all hopes for racing washed down the drain. With five rain-outs in the first nine weeks of racing 2013 is proving to be one of the most difficult seasons in recent history.
Chat Mobility will sponsor their annual Kids Money Grab on June 15th with over $700 in change spread on the track for the kids to pick up during intermission. All kids age 12 and under are invited to come on down and participate. The Helmet Pass for Curtis Gaunt will be rescheduled for a later date.
The late models will be running under the posted rules for restricted cone sizes as our one week test period is over.
Cooper First Time Winner - 8 Hall of Famers
Justin Cooper claimed his first career feature win on a night when the cold and wet relented just enough to let the cars take to the track. Jeremy Auten used a last lap pass to capture the crown in the Chat Mobility hobby stocks while Jerod Weston got win number two in four starts this season in the Stalker Chevrolet b-mods.
Kevin Sharp's win in the Northland Oil pro-stocks brought the crowd to their feet and Jeff Wiggins got his first win of the season in the Poet Biorefining modifieds.
The inaugural class of the ACS Hall of Fame was inducted. Gail and Karen Hampel went in as promoters, while Dave Chase, Dusty Whitehead, and the late Varel Schmidt were inducted as drivers. Outstanding contributors to the track were Harry Wiechman and Lawrence Peterson. Inducted as fans were Wendell Bell and the late C.R. "Dick" Miller.
