(Hartford, OH)…The combination of heavy overnight and morning rain on top of already saturated grounds from days of rain and flooding has forced Sharon Speedway to unfortunately cancel Tuesday’s Ohio Speedweek event for the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions Sprint Cars along with the non-wing RUSH Sprint Cars. The rainout marks the fourth in the last five events at Sharon and sixth overall of the season including the second time the All Star & RUSH Sprint doubleheader has been rained out.
Those that purchased advanced and reserved tickets for Tuesday will be refunded to the credit card used to purchase. Those that are holding rain checks from the May 4 rained out All Star and RUSH Sprint show can use them for the “Lou Blaney Memorial” featuring the All Stars on July 6 or send in for a refund to Sharon Speedway, PO Box 159, Hartford, OH 44424.
Coming up this Saturday night is the “Bickerstaff Cup” Series “John C. Rebhan Memorial” for the Outlaw E-Mods paying $1,200 to-win along with the RUSH Sprint Cars and HTMA/Precise Racing Products RUSH Sportsman Modifieds. It’s Warren Fab and AMG Jet Night. Race time is 7 p.m.
