Rain gets Raceway 7
Conneaut, OH (May 11) - The Friday night racing program at Raceway 7 was canceled due to rain. Thundershowers moved in during qualifying Heat races for the visiting York Triathlon Series. While the rain did not last long, it dumped enough to force the cancellation. More rain returned later in the evening, which would have made attempts to try to complete the program a losing proposition.
There has been no decision made on whether the Applebee Motorsports sponsored event by the Triathlon Series event will be rescheduled. In addition, anybody holding rain checks from this program may use them for the next two regular programs of racing on May 18 and June 1.
Car counts before the rains came were 31 Maloney Tool and Mold Super Late Models, 22 Jay's Auto Wrecking Steel Block Late Models, 49 York Triathlon Series E-Mods, and 31 Fame Manufacturing Street Stocks.
Raceway 7 will be back in action on Friday, May 18. There will be a four-division program of racing, and it will be Dale Earnhardt Memorial Night featuring a multitude of prizes of memorabilia of the fallen NASCAR hero. It will also be Twin State Auto Racing Club Night.
The first special event of the season goes on Friday, May 25. The Renegade STARS Racing Series Late Models will visit for the running of The Bolt Place 100, with $10,000 going to the winner. All divisions will be in action that night.
The June 1 racing program will feature four divisions of racing, with The Gas House sponsoring the evening's Street Stock main event. There will be bike races for the kids that evening.
The gates for all racing programs open at 5:30, with racing action starting at 7:30. Raceway 7 is located six miles south of Interstate 90 on Ohio Route 7. For more information, please call 814-967-4230 for the office, or 440-594-2222 for the track.
