SOD at Butler over the falls without a barrel, race rescheduled

From Sprints on Dirt
Fort Wayne, IN (May 12, 2019) – With rain percentages looking better and better as the day went on Saturday, the first 2019 Lane Automotive Sprints On Dirt powered by King Engine Bearings / MSD Ignition / Motul race at Butler Motor Speedway looked good. Unfortunately, Mother Nature apparently wasn’t watching the percentages.

As pit gates opened and the pits filled with cars, intermittent sprinkles started. Just as SOD sign in was winding down, rain increased, and it soon became clear to everyone watching weather radar on their phones that we wouldn’t get the show in. After having put in a long week prepping for the race, Promoters Denny Donaldson and Bob Garrett had to pull the plug and cancel the show.

Butler and SOD officials went to work to replace the date, and within a short time, it was agreed to reschedule the race for Saturday, May 25. It will be a two-day weekend for SOD competitors with Hartford Motor Speedway on the schedule for Friday, May 24.
