Adverse track conditions forced cancellation of Friday night’s “Coca-Cola Spring Classic” USAC AMSOIL National Sprint car race at the Eldora Speedway despite extensive and lengthy track preparation efforts. Saturday night’s “Coca Cola Spring Classic” USAC race remains on the schedule.
“In the interest of driver and fan safety, we decided to cancel tonight’s events,” said Eldora Speedway track director Larry Boos.”
Practice sessions were conducted but track conditions did not improve and it became evident that racing could not be conducted safely. “We regret the cancellation of tonight’s program,” said USAC Competition Director Jason McCord, “but feel it was the best decision for all involved. We are dedicated to working with Eldora Speedway and their staff to be able to conduct events on Saturday and beyond and we thank them for their tireless efforts.”
Saturday’s program gets under way with practice at 6 pm and racing at 7:30.
