Sprints On Dirt At Hartford Motor Speedway Postponed Due To Rain


The Engine Pro Sprints on Dirt presented by ARP were scheduled to take on the newly reconfigured 3/8s (0.375) mile high-banked dirt oval of Hartford Speedway on Friday, May 19th. Unfortunately, Mother Nature would have a say as Rain Showers and a forecast for more of the same throughout the afternoon and into the evening have forced Series & Track Officials to postpone King Engine Bearings King of Michigan Race #1.

Both Series & Track Officials are diligently working on a suitable makeup date for the track located west of Kalamazoo in Hartford, Michigan and when that is determined, it will be announced.

SOD now shifts focus to the next event on the schedule on Saturday, May 20th, the MAHLE/Clevite Beyond Limits Challenge Race #1 at Baer Field Motorsports Park in Fort Wayne, Indiana. The last time SOD raced in the Summit City was back in 1994 during the days of the SOD Schedule consisting of both dirt and pavement facilities. Denny England went to victory lane back on September 10th, 1994.
