LIGHTS OUT AT AFTON SPEEDWAY!
Afton, NY... The skies were clear, the weather was warm, but the
racing action at Afton Speedway came to an early end last Friday night as the
track lights went out during qualifying.
The track's generator itself was working fine, but there was a short
circuit somewhere in the on-track lights. Track crews worked vigorously for
about an hour or so, but could not correct the problem, and the whole show
had to be scrapped, as all the qualifying events were not completed.
We appreciate all the fans that stood by us as we tried to fix the
problem. Rain checks will be good for next Friday's program, so bring your
ticket stubs or wrist bands.
This Friday night will be 358 Modified Fan appreciation night at the
Afton Action Attraction, with a Syracuse Qualifyer on the line for the 358
Mods. A full program of DIRT Sportsman, Pro Stocks, Pure Stocks, Four
Cylinder Stocks, and Dwarf Cars will also be on hand.
As always, gates open at 5pm, with racing set to start at 7:30pm sharp.
Afton Speedway is located just off exit 7 from Interstate 88, just East of
Binghamton. See you at the races!
