BLOOMINGTON, IN (May 17, 2002) - Mike Miles and his Bloomington Speedway staff had the famous red clay oval prepared for the competition. He had two dry days to get the track prepared to perfection and ready for the wheel to wheel racing for which Bloomington Speedway is famous. However, the rains moved back in overnight; and it has rained continuously all day. There is simply no way to race on famous red clay tonight.

In keeping with the rules under which the KISS Series is run, this event will not be rescheduled.

It is said that it is indeed an ill wind that brings no good; and this rainout is not an exception to this rule. This rainout gives Rookie of the Year candidate Tim Spindler another week to get his beautiful #31 sprinter back together. He crashed hard at Tri-State Speedway a couple of weeks ago; and he would have been unable to race tonight. He should have it repaired by next Friday and be ready to resume his drive for the Bloomington Speedway Rookie of the Year title.

The KISS Series will continue June 1 at Paragon Speedway, June 15 at Lincoln Park Speedway at Putnamville, June 18 at the Terre Haute Action Track, and conclude July 14 at Kokomo Speedway. Plan to see as many of these as you can.

The next racing program at Bloomington Speedway will be held on May 24 (next Friday night) and will feature non winged sprint cars, O'Neal Wood Products Open Wheel Modifieds, and Indiana Super Stocks. This will be Karton King night. Pick up a discount coupon at your Karton King store and redeem it for reduced admission to the grandstand.
