HAMMETT, PA, (May 27, 2012)- For the second straight Memorial Day Weekend, the Patriot Sprint Tour scheduled a doubleheader at Stateline and Eriez Speedways.  For the second straight year, Stateline’s event was completed, while Eriez was not.


Heavy thunderstorms pounded the grounds of the Eriez Speedway shortly after noon on Sunday, leaving track owners Bobby and Kathy Rohrer no choice but to pull the plug on a Memorial Weekend tradition. Over 20 sprint cars were already in the pits at the 1/3-mile oval, and more were on the way when a second deluge hit just before 3:00 P.M.


The Patriot Sprint Tour will return to the Eriez Speedway later in the season, with the replacement date to be confirmed later this week.  Before that point, PST regulars will have a rare mid-season hiatus, with the next sanctioned event Saturday June 16 at Mercer Raceway Park.
