(Hartford, OH)…Mother Nature scored a clean sweep of racing activities scheduled for the month of April at Sharon Speedway; first washing out both open practices then postponing the April 20 Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series event to July 2, and now forcing the cancellation of tonight’s first Menards “Super Series” event due to rain and unseasonably cold temperatures. Those with tickets for the April 28 event can use them at any upcoming Menards “Super Series” events with the exception of the “Lou Blaney Memorial”
