York Triathlon Series season opener at Raceway 7 rained out
Conneaut, OH (May 11) - The York Triathlon Racing Series Modified event scheduled at Raceway 7 on Friday, May 11 was canceled due to rain. Rain started to fall during the third of four qualifying heats, forcing the postponement of the event.
At this time, there has been no decision made as to whether the event will be rescheduled.
A field of 49 cars had been assembled for the opening race of the Triathlon Modified season. By York Series rules, each car that was on hand earns their 40 attendance points. As a result, this could be the first time in racing history that there has been a 49-way tie for first place in the points. Each driver that attended this program can indeed say that they are the point leader for the York Triathlon Series.
Unless the Raceway 7 event is rescheduled before then, the next event in the Triathlon Series season will take place on June 9 at Tyler County Speedway in Middlebourne, WV. It will be the first event in Triathlon Series history held in the state of West Virginia. The Tyler County program of racing called "Border Wars" will feature the Triathlon Series running of the First Annual "Mountaineer Challenge." The top finishers in the main event from the York Series will compete in a challenge race against drivers from neighboring sanctioning body AMRA. Tyler County Speedway is located on Route 18 in Middlebourne, WV, at the Fairgrounds.
