Rain canceled the Cabin Fever event and now it’s caused the cancellation of the first race of the season. The start of the season has been pushed back to Saturday, April 27.
The track is simply too wet and will not provide an ideal racing surface for the drivers. Track owner, Ed Kennedy, also kept the fans in the forefront of this decision as he wants to ensure the fans a good opening night.
Matt Schwartz, Director of Racing at Plymouth Speedway, stated that the staff has been working hard during the off-season to make the transition from asphalt to dirt on the local track and Mother Nature has not cooperated.
Several tons of clay were brought in to transform the asphalt track to a state-of-the-art dirt surface. Drivers have expressed their excitement to race on the more competitive dirt track and provide the best entertainment in northern Indiana.
Mark April 27 at 7:00 p.m. ET as the official start to the dirt track racing season at Plymouth Speedway.
There are several other big events at the Plymouth Speedway this season including the Earl Gaerte Classic and the Bob Newton Classic, sponsored by Fel-Pro Performance Gaskets, the MOD Squad Night featuring NASCAR drivers Ken Schrader and David Stremme, and the USAC Race4Life.
