Lima, OH — (June 26, 2015) — Due to steady rains moving into the area overnight and additional wet weather forecasted for later today, round eight of the 33rd Annual Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Cometic Gasket scheduled at Limaland Motorsports Park has been canceled. UNOH All Star Circuit of Champions officials and track officials alike were forced to make the decision after rainfall moved into the Lima, Ohio area during the overnight hours. There will be no rain date.
“Unfortunately, with the grounds getting saturated and more inclement weather moving into the area later this evening, we are forced to cancel tonight’s program.” said All Star series director Don Grabey, “Everything is extremely saturated, it will be almost impossible to get rigs in and out of the facility. Mother Nature has been good to us leading into today, hopefully things improve and we can get the last night in uninterrupted.”
Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Cometic Gasket will now move ahead to the finale at the Fremont Speedway in Fremont, Ohio on Saturday, June 27th. The 3/8’s mile semi-banked dirt oval will showcase round nine of Ohio Sprint Speedweek for the UNOH All Star Circuit of Champions.
