Rain forces cancellation in New Mexico

LAS CRUCES, New Mexico -- Intermittent rain throughout the afternoon and evening have cancelled the Saturday, Oct. 7 National Sprint Tour action at Southern New Mexico Speedway.

NST and track officials worked diligently for hours to get the facility ready for the many dedicated race fans that patiently sat in the stands much of the evening, but a final rain storm around 8:30 p.m. local time forced the cancellation.

Sunday's forecast calls for more rain. The race will not be made up this season. The inaugural NST season concludes Oct. 13-14 at Tulare Thunderbowl Raceway in Tulare, Calif.

Tonight's racing was a make-up for the March 11 NST show in Las Cruces, which was postponed due to high wind.
