Race fans this has not been a good weekend for racing!
As far I can see it is mother nature 5 and the race fans 0 in
this game of trying to dodge mother nature and esscape being
rained out. Gas City IIN) Speedway did get there Friday racing
in as well as Bloomington Speedway. Anderson,Mt. Lawn and Shady
Hill Speedways were all rained out Saturday Night. the JEGS All
Star Tour Late Models have rescheduled for Saturday July 9th at
Union Couny (IN) Speedway a 3/8 mile high banked dirt
oval as far as I know has not raced this season. The Health
Department stated Union County will not reopen until the
restrooms are improved. If you want information on this track

Street Stocks,Thundercars and IOFS FWD Figure 8's. This is the
second visit for the IOFS at Anderson this season. Check out

feel to it when you walk in the main gates. They have great food
at reasonable prices and they do not drop any classes when they
bring in the HOSS Sprints or Must See Sprints. If you get a
chance please chewck out Baer Field Speedway in FT.
Sunday June 12th Lucas Oil Raceway Park will feature the

are allowed into this speedway and I urge you to check out this
show if yo get the chance.
Gas City I 69 Speedway will host the USAC National
Midgets on Wednesday June 8th along with Non Wing Sprints and

of dirt! There is no racing Friday June 10th at Gas City.
Bloomington Speedway hosts USAC National Midgets and
Non Wing Sprints as Indiana Midget Week continues Friday June
10th. I have not made it to Bloomington yet this season.
