WEEDSPORT, NY (October 15, 2017) – For the second time this season, Weedsport Speedway’s Empire State Challenge, featuring the Craftsman World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series, has been defeated by mother nature.
Due to forecasted high winds and heavy rains at race time, the difficult decision was made to cancel the night’s activities which were also set to include the finale of the Beyea Custom Headers Sportsman Shootout Series as well as the Sportsman Premium Dash for Cash presented by Senior Services Insurance Agency.
Those with ticket stubs or wristbands are asked to mail them to the Weedsport Speedway ticket office at PO Box 415 in Weedsport, NY 13166 within 14 days of tonight’s cancelled event for a full refund.
Advance sale tickets will also be refunded either electronically or via check.
The final event of the season at Weedsport Speedway will be the 5th annual Racer’s Swap Meet on Saturday, October 28.
