While weather has cancelled racing at a handful of tracks, many others plan to push through the cold and run races.
While there is plenty of great racing still on schedule tonight, the highlight is probably Toledo Speedway in Toledo, OH. The ARCA / CRA Super Series and Midwest Tour will both hit the track for the 7-UP 150 tonight at 5 PM. Sharon Speedway features its first Super Late Model Showdown night of the year, while Hilltop Speedway hosts EDGE Modifieds. Also, a pair of FAST series compete at Fremont and Columbus. Drivers battling for the Fremont Attica Sprint Title hit up Fremont Speedway for the first time of 2013, while FAST Series Legend Cars take to Columbus Speedway.
Weather was cold and damp enough to cancel racing at Attica Raceway Park last night, and also led to the cancellations of four other races. Midvale Speedway and Lorain County Speedway were both scheduled to start their seasons tonight, but have pushed things back to the 27th now. Eldora and Deerfield also cancelled events due to weather conditions.

Sharon Speedway has cancelled its “Springduro 150” scheduled for March 30th due to weather.
For a second week, the track has had to scrap plans for the event because of Mother Nature intervening with cold temperatures, rain, and snow melt. Officials were concerned with both the 3/8-mile dirt track surface and surrounding parking areas.
“Nothing has changed since last Wednesday when we had to postpone the event, in fact with the additional rounds of wet snow and cold conditions things are worse,” explained General Manager Dave Willoughby in a statement from the track. Continue reading “Springduro” Cancelled by Weather
Sharon Speedway has been forced to postpone Saturday’s (March 23) scheduled open practice and “Springduro 150” Enduro until next Saturday, March 30. An unseasonably cold and wet March hasn’t enabled track crews to be able to get on the 3/8-mile surface to date in addition to the parking areas being unusable left track officials with no choice but to postpone. March 30 will utilize the same event times with the open practice from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. followed by the Enduro at 2:30 p.m.
“Between the continual rain, snow and cold conditions this month, it just hasn’t allowed us to get the track ready,” explained General Manager Dave Willoughby. “This week’s weather was really the nail in the coffin and with more snow on the way there’s just no way to get the track and grounds ready even though Saturday’s weather doesn’t look too bad. We obviously need to provide safe conditions for both the racers and fans. Hopefully we’ll get some dry, warmer weather next week.” Continue reading Sharon Speedway: “Springduro” Delayed to March 30th
