RAINS HALT MAY 3 WILLIAMS GROVE ASCS/URC BATTLE AT THE GROVES

5/3/19 - Holding out hope that the forecast would change, Williams Grove Speedway and ASCS officials held out on making a decision regarding the May 3 racing program until after 3 pm Friday afternoon, at which time the joint decision to pull the plug on the ASCS/URC Battle At The Groves event was made.

With the area forecast predicting heavy storms and the chance for rain at over 70% beginning at 6 pm through the midnight hour along with a severe thunderstorm watch being issued for surrounding counties, officials made the call in an effort to prevent any undue hardship on teams and fans that may have traveled to the show only to face rain upon arriving.

Numerous teams contacted the oval expressing unease over a decision to race in the face of the seeming imminent evening rains.

Thus, Williams Grove Speedway now shifts its focus to next Friday, May 10 when Brooks PowerSports will present a World of Outlaws Tune Up event at 8 pm featuring the 410 sprints and the 358 sprint cars.

Gates will open at 6 pm.

The 410 sprints will be tuning up for the following weekend’s invasion by the traveling NOS Energy Drink World of Outlaws Sprint Cars Series. The 358 sprints will be making their season debut.
