Mother Nature has been downright mean to racing this year. That’s no big secret.
Rainouts have played havoc with schedules across North America. This has left tracks and series left scrambling. One such entity is the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions (ASCoC). Despite being thrown multiple curve balls by the weather, the Tony Stewart-owned series is being resilient. They’ve announced that five of their rain-impended events have now been rescheduled.
Leading the reschedule slate is Pennsylvania’s Lernerville Speedway. After losing their May 3 to a late-afternoon downpour, the facility has rescheduled their stop for Friday, July 5. The program proceeds Sharon Speedway’s (Hartford, Ohio) annual Lou Blaney Memorial, which will be held the next night.
Meanwhile the Plymouth Dirt Track (Plymouth, Wisconsin) has rescheduled their May 18 postponement for Thursday, July 25. The date will be part of a quadruple header weekend with Minnesota’s Jackson Motorplex as well as Iowa’s Knoxville Raceway and 34 Raceway.
On May 25, a pair of downpours, just before hot laps, sacked the program at Wayne County Speedway (Orrville, Ohio). Alas, the date is back on the docket for September 2. It will now be part of a four-race weekend that includes an already scheduled event at the facility on September 1 as well as a doubleheader at Attica Raceway Park (Attica, Ohio) on August 30-31.
Back on April 14 the sprawling confines of Pennsylvania’s Bedford Speedway fell victim to rain. The race reappears on the schedule on September 5 as a preamble to the must-see Tuscarora 50 at Port Royal Speedway (Port Royal, Pennsylvania), which will be held September 6-7.
Last but not least the famed Williams Grove Speedway (Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania) finds its Tommy Hinnershitz Memorial rescheduled for September 20. The event is paired for the weekend with the annual Dirt Classic at Pennsylvania’s Lincoln Speedway.
Defending ASCoC Champion, Aaron Reutzel leads the current standings over Paul McMahan, Dale Blaney, Spencer Bayston and Tim Shaffer.
