Sycamore, Ill. Aug. 31—Rain showers have forced cancellation of Saturday Night’s “Franklin B. Alexander Memorial” Zimbrick Chevrolet of Sun Prairie Badger Midget Series event at Sycamore Speedway. The event which pays $5,000 to win has been rescheduled to Saturday Night Sept. 28 at the track, and will now serve as the Badger season finale.
Twenty-four cars were at the track, and about to begin practice, when a surprise rain cloud hit the track, resulting in the postponement.

Grandstand gates open at 4:30 pm, with practice beginning at 5:30 pm, racing to follow.
