SRP WET....AGAIN

SRP WET....AGAIN 

 

Seymour June 26-  9:25 AM – The weather continued is nasty ways by dumping over 1 ½ inches of rain early Sunday morning and along with a strong storm cell  made a general mess of things at Seymour Raceway Park.   The result is cancelling the weekly racing program along with the Badger Midgets / Micro 600 Sprints for tonight, Sunday June 26.  

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.

Next week, Sunday June 26,the Badger Midgets and Micro 600 Sprints will join the regular program.     The Badger midgets are one of the oldest sanctioning bodies in the country and will be making a rare trek away from their home track in Sun Prairie.  This will be a full point event for both divisions.

The Month of July will be a busy one with the kick off being the Budweiser Summer Holiday Classic series on Sunday, July 3rd.    With the first race of the series rained out on Memorial Day, the IMCA Modifieds will be running here for the first time in 2016.         The event will see the Modifieds running a 30 lap feature with a $2000 pay day.  The event will be IMCA sanctioned.

Joining the big event. The IRA Outlaw Sprint Cars will be bringing their 50th Anniversary tour to Seymour Raceway Park for their only appearance in 2016.    Their main event will also see 30 of the quickest laps run during the season here.   Their last visit back in 2014 saw the feature go flag to flag in just under 8 minutes.

Filling out the evening will be our regular IMCA Sport Mod division running a regular point night.

 

The July 10th program will see the Grand National Stock Cars join the regular SRP weekly program.  It has been a couple years since the division has run here, and should be an exciting night.

 

The Vintage Milwaukee Stock Car Racing Association will return to SRP on Sunday July 17th.

 

The WDLMA Late Models will invade the banked 1/3 mile clay oval at SRP on Sunday July 24.    Their first appearance was supposed to be on the rained out Memorial Day event as well.   This event usually blends the best late model pilots in the area for a great night of racing along with our regular program.

 

Both the July 3 and 24th programs are part of the Kim Parsons Memorial Trophy Tour to help promote organ and tissue donations, so the BIG trophies will be up for grabs once again.    We THANK the tour for their continued support.

The end of July will see the NO racing due to the Annual Outagamie County Fair.

 

Mark your calendars for all of the excitement every Sunday night at Seymour Raceway Park.      We appreciate you choosing to spend part of your weekend racing with us.
