(Hartford, OH)…After a week of off and on heavy rain, and with more rain imminent throughout the afternoon and evening, Sharon Speedway has made the decision to cancel the “Steel Valley Thunder” program scheduled for tonight (May 3).

Next Saturday (May 10) will feature the “Mother’s Day Celebration” with just $7 admission for ladies for the “Steel Valley Thunder” program featuring the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply DIRTcar Big-Block Modifieds, Barris Supply RUSH Late Models, Summit Racing Equipment Modifieds, Gibson Insurance Agency Stock Cars, HTMA/Precise Racing Products Econo Mods, and the Deforest Used Parts Mini Stocks. Race time is 7 p.m.

Fans don’t forget that coming up on Saturday, May 17 will be Fan Appreciation Night with FREE grandstand admission! The event was a huge success last summer and has been moved up earlier in the season this year. This will be a full six-division program as well!
