FREMONT, Ohio – Dangerous heat conditions have forced Fremont Speedway officials to cancel the races on Saturday, July 23.
“They are calling for temperatures in the mid to upper 90s with a heat index of around 105 to 110 degrees. Health officials are telling area residents to stay inside. The last time we tried to race in conditions like this we had people hauled out in the EMS for heat exhaustion. Our goal is always to provide a safe, fun and entertaining event,” said Rich Farmer, Promoter of Fremont Speedway.
Besides the Saturday night racing being cancelled so is the Johnny Auxter Day events on Sunday. Farmer said the classic car show scheduled for 9 a.m. Saturday at the fairgrounds is still on as the event will be over before the extreme heat of the day hits.
