This marks the third straight Friday night speedway officials have been forced to call off on-track activity due to weather.
So far in 2019, the only laps run at the "Big R" were during a midweek practice session after the originally scheduled “Test, Tune & Time Night” was canceled. Speedway officials said they hope the third time's the charm to get the first race of the 2019 season in the books next Friday.
Fantasy Island, United Materials and Bailey Brothers Landscaping will present “Autograph Night” on May 17. Fans can meet their favorite drivers during an on-track autograph session.
