  • Beckley WV Cancels due to Good weather

    Not kidding. Great Lakes Sprints called off their show because of rocks earlier in the year. Now they’re cancelling a race to screen the surface. Right move to try to get rid of the rocks. Bad move cancelling a race when there are 6 other days.

    Racing canceled for tonight. We have decided to take advantage of the good weather opportunity to continue to work on the track surface. We have purchased a screening machine from Whythe Raceway and will work through the weekend to improve the track condition. We will resume racing next Friday night. Thank you all for your cooperation and understanding. We look forward to seeing you all next Friday night!!!

    Maybe they can rent the machine to Mansfield when they are done!

      At least they understand they have a problem and are trying to rectify it. Most tracks would have just left it as is.

        Good point, and true. There have been some serious eye injuries to drivers over the decades from rocks, as well as to spectators. I’ve been to numerous events when this has happpened. Looks like this track has made a decision based on safety, which I applaud.

          Yes exactly, I can appreciate that fact. Just odd to cancel an event in order to do it.

            Paragon cancelled last night “due to the heat.” That place needs to become a specials only track.

              I was in Indianapolis last night ( not that far from Paragon ) and they had over 11,000 for a minor league baseball game, with 91 degrees at game time. Perhaps they were worried about dust rather than attendance.
