(Hartford, OH)…After a successful “Lou Blaney Memorial” on Saturday night, the stage was set for Justin Snyder’s “Salute to the Troops” event presented by Self Made Racing LLC on Sunday night featuring the FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions Sprint Cars presented by Mobil 1 and the Terry Bowser Excavating RUSH Sprint Cars; however, Mother Nature had other plans. Rain began mid-morning and with thunderstorms forecasted throughout the day and night, the decision was made to call off the event. Track and Series officials are working together to find a possible makeup date.
