Empire Super Sprints falls to rain again; washout #5 comes at Merrittville.
THOROLD, ONT. - After a good field of 29 sprinters unloaded at the Merrittville Speedway, Mother Nature decided to claim the checkered flag once again on the Empire Super Sprints (ESS) Tour 2002. The VSM Abrasives Canadian Invasion Tour event has been re-scheduled for Saturday night June 29th. The rain-out marked the fifth cancellation in ten events.
This weekend finds four consecutive nights of winged sprint car action as the ESS Tour 2002 makes a Thursday night stop at the Can-Am Motorsports Park followed by visits to Auotdrome Granby, Drummond and the Cornwall Motor Speedway.
