Story By: STEVEN OVENS / CRSA – SODUS, NY – Mother Nature 2, CRSA Sprints 0. At least this time we aren’t talking about over a foot of snow.
An impending poor forecast for Friday evening and one of the longest tows of the series for most of the CRSA teams put Penn Can Speedway officials in a position to reschedule the Series Opening event. The new date for Penn Can Speedway will be Friday July 8. That will join a second date at “The Can” on September 17.
“We never want to see Mother Nature intervene, but we know it puts our track partners in a tough position,” said CRSA Sprints owner and promoter Mike Emhof.
“What we do appreciate is that Penn Can Speedway was considerate of our teams in this tough economic climate and that we have a non-conflicting date to work with to go back on July 8. We have to do everything we can to keep unnecessary costs down for our teams.”
This now sets up a ‘Legendary’ Series Opener on Saturday May 21 at Paul Cole’s Land of Legends Raceway. Home to weekly CRSA-sanctioned racing with the 305 Sprint contingent every Saturday night. Their events are also broadcast for free, giving the CRSA opener a massive audience viewing from all over the world.
