Lawrenceburg, Indiana (July 24, 2022)………Mother Nature captured victory in the second round of USAC NOS Energy Drink Indiana Sprint Week on Sunday night at Lawrenceburg Speedway.
Rain hit the 3/8-mile speedway just after 8pm Eastern time when the 23-car field was being pushed away for the start of the 30-lap feature event.
Unfortunately, despite waiting out the weather front for well over an hour, the rain and the lightning never relented once it started, forcing cancellation of the feature event just before 9:30pm.
The event is considered a complete show. The feature payout and points were shared among the main event starters. Competitors earned standard qualifying and preliminary race points. With the rain out, slated feature starters were issued 23 points while non-feature starters received 10 points toward the Indiana Sprint Week and USAC National Sprint Car standings.
Indiana Sprint Week continues on Monday night, July 25, at Circle City Raceway in Indianapolis. The event features the USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship presented by Mastin & Cain along with the Sherley Unlimited Snow Company UMP Modifieds.
Pits open at 3pm Eastern at Circle City with the front gates opening at 5:30pm, the drivers meeting at 6pm and hot laps at 6:30pm with qualifying and racing immediately following.
