Kawartha Speedway Cancels Friday, September 3rd Racing

In most cases, the colour green is a good thing - especially in the world of motorsports.  The only problem occurs when you're a track promoter, looking at the radar for the latest weather forecast.  Kawartha Speedway's Derek Lynch saw nothing but green when he checked the satellites for the latest update.  On a weather radar, green means rain and Lynch was forced to cancel the night of racing for Friday, September 3rd.

"We have drivers, teams and fans who travel a great distance to be here," said Lynch.  "If I thought there'd be even the slightest chance we'd manage to get the full show in the books, we'd be going full speed ahead.  With a 50 lap mini stock invitational and the Ontario Legends in addition to a regular show for our other classes, it just wasn't worth taking the chance."

Kawartha Speedway's 10th Anniversary season will continue with the late model Summer Sizzler - Friday, September 10th.  The 150 lap event will be run in 3 fifty lap segments and pay $3,000.00 to the overall winner.  The night of racing will have some revised start times as well.  Gates will open at 2:00, with racing getting underway at 6:00.  For all the details, see
