Rain Forecast Forces Cancellation for New Egypt Speedway
All Star Cup Shootout Next Event on the Schedule
New Egypt, NJ– With a rain forecast of 70% for the evening hours, New Egypt Speedway was forced to cancel their Football Night event scheduled for Saturday, September 13, 2014.
“After looking at the radar and seeing the threat of rain not just possible showers, we had no choice but to cancel for tonight,” said General Manager Allyse Wolfinger. “We would have loved to have had another point show for the Crates and the Street Stocks who have incredibly close point battles going on, but Mother Nature didn’t seem to agree with us.”
