Sharon Speedway/Wayne County Speedway plans for Tuesday canceled; Atomic Speedway on as scheduled with Wayne County as back-up plan
HARTFORD, Ohio (June 18, 2019) - Despite Sharon Speedway and Wayne County Speedway officials doing everything they could to make Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Indy Metal Finishing competition on Tuesday, June 18, a reality, the amount of precipitation received overnight proved to be too much, forcing both facilities to cancel their respective plans.
Ohio Sprint Speedweek will continue Wednesday evening, June 19, at the highbanks of Atomic Speedway in Chillicothe, Ohio.
Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 and Atomic Speedway officials will monitor the weather through Wednesday morning. In the event that Atomic Speedway is forced to cancel their respective Speedweek program, Wayne County Speedway will host Speedweek action on Wednesday evening. An update will be provided by 10 a.m. Wednesday.
