FREMONT, Ohio – Heavy thunderstorms,
saturated grounds and an unfavorable weather forecast have forced Fremont
Speedway officials to cancel Saturday’s (April 16) season opener.
“We got hit with a lot of
rain late in the morning and the track was just too wet to work on and
there isn’t any good drying weather in the forecast so we are forced to
cancel for the entire weekend,” said Fremont Speedway Promoter Rich Farmer.
“The Track That Action Built”
will open for its 60th anniversary season on Saturday, April 23. Eagle
99 Night will feature the first of 10 scheduled races in the Kistler Racing
Products Fremont Attica Sprint Title (FAST) Championship series at the
track. It’s a big weekend, as on Friday, April 22, Attica will also host
a FAST event paying $3,000 to win for the 410 sprints with Fremont Speedway
following the next night with another $3,000-to-win showcase.
Also competing at Fremont
Speedway with the Fort Ball Pizza Palace 410 Sprints will be the Fremont
Federal Credit Union 305 Sprints and the Fremont Fence Dirt Trucks.
Gates will open at 4 p.m.
with racing underway at 7 p.m.
