Londontown Weather Forces Cancellation of New Egypt Speedway’s May 7th Eventerik158@gmail.com
New Egypt, NJ – Mother Nature takes the victory again this weekend as New Egypt Speedway was forced to cancel their Mother’s Day race on Saturday, May 7th. A week of rain capped off with early morning showers made it impossible to get the track in racing condition.
“We’ve had a lot of early season rain outs which has really put a damper on the start of the 2016 point races,” said General Manager Allyse Wolfinger. “But we have a lot of great racing still left over the next 5 months and hopefully Mother Nature will relent so we can get those shows in.”
Next Saturday, May 14th is Legends Night sponsored by Premio Foods. Racing will be the 358 Modifieds, NEWS Sprints presented by Burlington Overhead Door, and the TSRS Sprints.
