Bloomington Speedway rained out again.

BLOOMINGTON, IN (May 24, 2002) - The Bloomington Speedway red clay was ready for competition again. The pits were full; and everyone was ready to race. The sprint cars were qualified with two time Bloomington Speedway track champion Derek Scheffel setting quick time. Rookie Tim Spindler was second quick followed by Kenny Carmichael, Jason Knoke, Kevin Chambers, and Kevin Briscoe.

A light rain fell during O'Neal Wood Products modified hot laps; but it was very light. The track was ready for competition again without undue delay. The hot laps were completed; and it looked like we might get the program in.

Wil Newlin started the first heat on the pole; while Scheffel lined up sixth. Scheffel worked his way through traffic but narrowly lost to Newlin. Shawn Krockenberger won the second heat; however, the real show was Rookie Spindler and Briscoe battling for the final transfer spot. Briscoe won; but he didn't win by much. Kenny Lacey narrowly edged Justin Marvel in the third heat.

The fourth heat was on the track when the rain began to fall again. It began to rain lightly; and it looked like we might dodge the bullet again. However, before long it started to rain harder; and it was obvious that there would be no more racing tonight. The rains ended before too long; but it was too late. The track had taken too much water; and the show was over.

The rain checks can be used at either the May 31 or June 7 races.
