Continued Wet Forecast Forces 81-Speedway Officials to Call Off Park City Cup/Air Capital Shootout

PARK CITY, Kan. (April 19, 2017) Officials at 81-Speedway have made the decision to call off this weekend’s rescheduled Park City Cup/Air Capital Shootout as this weekend’s forecast has not come below a 90 percent chance of rain on during Friday’s, April 21 opener, only to give way to a 50 percent chance on Saturday, April 22.

The race will not be rescheduled for a third time, but the dates for next year’s event have been announced for March 30-31, 2018.

“It’s hard to have to call of a race, but with the rain chances as high as they are, we’d rather have the race called early so the teams can find other options to fill their weekend,” said ASCS Red River Region director, Terry Mattox. “We’re already looking at the dates for next year and making sure we can co-sanction again.”

ASCS Mid-South and Red River Regions Face Off at I-30 Speedway this Saturday

TULSA, Okla. (March 27, 2017) The race may be on April Fool’s Day, but that just means you’d have to be a fool to miss the rebirth of the ASCS Mid-South Region as the best of the “Razorback State” take on the American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Red River Region presented by Smiley’s Racing Products at the famed I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark. on Saturday, April 1.

Looking at this Saturday’s event at the I-30 Speedway, it conjures a bit of déjà vu as the inaugural Mid-South Regional event in 2006 was also slated for April 1 at I-30 Speedway. Unfortunately, the event fell to rain and was rescheduled to June 3, 2006. Paired with the ASCS Sooner Region, the top spot that night went to Tim Crawley.

Seeing a single season of competition in 2006, Oklahoma’s Darren Stewart ultimately picked up the crown in the Bobby Sparks owned No. 91 machine by 127 markers over Tennessee’s Bryce Vowan. With the chance to bring the region back in 2017, the series will play inside Arkansas boundaries with dates at five tracks and includes the 30th annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals.
