HANOVER, PA, 4/18/03 - The stage was set, but Mother Nature just wouldn't co-operate!

With nearby speedways canceling earlier in the day, Trail-Way Speedway officials were hoping for nothing short of a miracle. With phone calls pouring into the speedway office from as far as New York and New Jersey, Trail-Way Speedway's debut of the new Coors Light 358 Sprint Series with the 30-lap $1,200-to-win Auto Locator 358 Sprint Spring Championship was going to be the only show in town.

But it just wasn't to be.

Rain, which began in the morning, continued into the afternoon and showed no signs of stopping, forcing Trail-Way officials to postpone the Friday night, April 18th show until Friday night, May 9th. On that night, the Coors Light 358 Sprints will once again go after the $1,200 top prize with the thundercars and scramble cars rounding out the evening's activities.

So now the Coors Light 358 Sprint Series will have to wait one more week to make there debut at the lightning-fast Adams County 1/3rd-mile oval. Next Friday night, April 25th, the Coors Light 358 Sprints will again try to make there debut and share the spotlight with the highly competitive Thundercars as they race in a special Thundercar Championship event which will pay $500-to-win the 25 lap event. Rounding out the racing program will be the street stocks. Gates will open at 5:30 PM with the first heat set to take the green flag at 7:30 PM.

But the weekend action at Trail-Way Speedway isn't over yet!

The regularly scheduled Saturday night, April 19th show of 250cc & 600cc Micro-Sprints, 4-Cylinder Stock Cars, Scramble Cars & Figure 8's is still on. The weather forecast for Saturday is for clearing skies in the morning with temps reaching the low 60's.

Stay tuned as additional news and notes and the unveiling of a new website will highlight the action from Trail-Way Speedway over the next several weeks as they usher in a new era of racing action at the lightning-fast one-third mile oval in 2003. Those interested in season tickets, reserved pit spaces, or need help with any other aspect of racing at Trail-Way Speedway are urged to call the speedway office at (717) 359- 4310.
