W. SILOAM SPRINGS, Okla. (May 2, 2017) Hit hard with flooding this past weekend, officials with Flint Creek Speedway in West Siloam Springs, Okla. have made the tough call to cancel this Friday’s events with the American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Red River Region presented by Smiley’s Racing Products.


According to track owner/promoter, Jacob Frese, the heavy rains from this past weekend caused considerable damage to the track surface along with other aspects of the property. Hoping Wednesday’s forecast for more rain would ease so as to allow crews enough time to get the facility back in order, it is apparent that will not be the case and for the safety of the teams and fans, Frese made the call to cancel.
At this time, Frese and ASCS Red River Competition Director, Terry Mattox, are looking at rescheduling the race. Any updates will posted
The series now turns its attention to Saturday night at Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Mo. for the Impact Open Wheel Showdown. The event is co-sanctioned with the Speedway Motors ASCS Warrior Region presented by Impact Signs, Awnings, and Wraps.
