This will also postpone the “Life In The Past Lane” book signing event with Joe Verdegan as well, this for the second time this year.
Everything is pretty much under water right now and the hot, humid, cloudy weather will not be good for any drying to take place.
This is the fourth rain out this season.
SRP and Badger officials are looking for an available date to reschedule. Also working with Joe Verdegan to re schedule the book signing event.
Next week will bring in the Budweiser Summer Holiday Classic series which will feature the 50th Anniversary tour for the IRA Sprints along with the first appearance for the IMCA Modifieds. Rounding out the night will be the IMCA Sport Mods.
