Frozen forecast forces Fall Futurity cancellation

October 24, 2017

Sorry folks, but this weekend’s Fall Futurity event at the Hamilton County Speedway is canceled due to impending frigid cold and the real possibility of sleet and snow.

Not exactly prime racing conditions. A Zamboni would be more useful than a sheep’s foot it appears. Might we suggest a new pair of winter boots or a space heater in lieu of your ticket or pit pass?

Unfortunately, Mother Nature—and her pal Old Man Winter—are refusing to cooperate. Weather services are calling for real-feel temperatures in the single digits with storng winds both days. The event will not be rescheduled.

This also brings a premature end to this year’s Iron Man Challenge campaign. Congratulations to our 2017 champions Derek Green of Granada, Minn. (Holley USRA Stock Cars) and Dan Hovden of Decoah, Iowa (Out-Pace USRA B-Mods).
