(Hartford, OH)…For the seventh time this season, Mother Nature has chalked up a victory at Sharon Speedway. Overnight rains that continued throughout the morning hours forced management to cancel Saturday night’s racing activities.

Friday’s program will get underway at 6:30 p.m. with the May 27 Open Stock Car make-up feature and the event will also include the September 8 rained out FASTRAK Northeast Futures Cup “Trifecta” race.

The Barris Supply FASTRAK Late Models will be in action both nights featuring $1,000 to-win on Friday night and a complete program for the Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC Pace Performance Northeast Touring Series on Saturday for $1,200 to-win. The normal FT400 right rear tire rule will be waived for the entire weekend.
The UEMS E-Mods will compete both nights with two complete shows paying $1,000 each! Besides the May 27 Open Stock make-up, the Open Stock Cars will battle for $500 on Friday night and $1,000 for Saturday night in preparation for the $1,500 to-win October 6 event. Also on the card with complete shows each night are the HTMA/Precise Racing Products Econo Mods and the Deforest Used Parts Mini Stocks.
