Afton Motorsports Park recap for June 23, 2017

Rained Out

Afton, NY— The racing action at the Afton Motorsports Park was cancelled on Friday night due to a strong line of heavy thunderstorms, which were caused by humid conditions. All of these weather factors when added up made the decision to cancel an easy one for track co-promoters Ron Ford and Leon Andrus.

"When you only are limited to how many races you can have it is tough to lose a show" stated Ron late Friday afternoon. "We have had a solid season to date and we were coming off an excellent Afton Action 50 two days earlier. I hated to make the call to cancel but I was a racer too and that is the worst thing spending money hauling to the track on a very shaky weather day and then get rained out without racing."

The sponsors of the night Nu - Look Collison and the New York State Stock Car Association will have their nights re-scheduled, Nu-Look Collison will now have their night on July 21st.
