Afton Motorsports Park recap for July 14, 2017

Rained Out

Afton, NY — Saturated grounds and a racing surface submerged under water was all that was needed to postpone the racing program at the Afton Motorsports Park on Friday night. This marks the fourth consecutive week that no racing will take place as three weeks were lost due to rain and last week due to the Afton Fair.

Track crews went to work early Friday morning in an attempt to get the racing surface into a raceable condition. The more water that was pumped off the race track resulted in even more water coming up from the saturated ground underneath. The decision to postpone was made just after Noon on Friday.

It was a difficult decision to postpone as the sun shined brightly a majority of the afternoon. But a heavy line of rain hit the speedway at 5 pm Friday and completely flooded the race track again.

Next Friday night Mirabito Energy Products and Nu-Look Collision present a five star show of Modifieds, Open Sportsman, Crate Sportsman, Street Stocks, Four Cylinder Trucks and Kiddie Rides. Gates open at 4pm, hot laps are at 6:15 pm, with the first heat starting at 7 pm sharp. Adult Admission is $12, Senior Citizen (ages 62 and up) $10, Youth (ages 9 to 14) $8 and under the age of 8 with an paid adult admission are free. The Modifieds and Street Stocks will try for the fourth time to get their Mid Season Championship races in the books.
