SAPULPA, Okla. (October 26, 2018) – Heavy rains to start off Thursday, followed by a non-stop mist throughout day and into the night have left the grounds at Creek County Speedway impassable, forcing officials with the Oklahoma oval to call off Friday’s portion of the John Christner Trucking Fall Fling to get the Track and Pits ready for Saturday night.
“If it had just rained and moved on yesterday, we wouldn’t have an issue, but the mist went all day and that soaked everything worse than the rain,” explained Creek County Speedway Promoter, Steve Hahn.
“The weather for Friday is good, but we can’t get anyone into the Pits and most of the Parking Lot without everyone getting stuck so right now we’re working to get everything dried out to race Saturday.”
Saturday, October 27 gets underway with Hot Laps at 6:00 P.M. and racing at 7:00 P.M. (CT). Admission for Saturday is $25 with youth 11-14 admitted into the grandstands for $6. Kids 10 and under free.
Creek County Speedway is located at 18450 West Hwy. 66 between Sapulpa and Kellyville.
