KANSAS CITY, Kan. – USAC’s AMSOIL National Sprint Car Series doubleheader at Lakeside Speedway, scheduled for May 21-22, has been rained out.
Word from track owner Pete Howey and event promoter Track Enterprises is that due to the extensive precipitation that has accumulated throughout the week at the four-tenths-mile dirt oval, and with a forecast calling for thunderstorms later Thursday and through the night into Friday, the track and the facility grounds would be too saturated to conduct the weekend’s scheduled events.
The pair of races were to be the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car Series’ first visit to Lakeside since 2017, and the first co-sanctioned event between three of USAC’s sprint car series: the AMSOIL National Sprint Car Series, the Wholesale Batteries Midwest Wingless Racing Ass’n and Wingless Sprints Oklahoma.
The USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car season continues May 26 with the 51st running of the Tony Hulman Classic at Indiana’s Terre Haute Action Track.
USAC Wingless Sprints Oklahoma travel next to The New Tulsa Speedway in Oklahoma on May 28, while the USAC Midwest Wingless Racing Ass’n heads to Double X Speedway in California, Mo., on May 30.
