Spring Spectacular postponed due to dangerous weather conditions.

FREDERICKTOWN, MO. -- (April 24, 2002) The Spring Spectacular scheduled for the Fredericktown Raceway tonight (Wednesday night) was cancelled due to torrential rain, hail and dangerous lightning. Two tornados reportedly touched down in the area near the track (Marquand and near Cherokee Pass as well as numerous other sitings in the area).

The event will be made-up on Wednesday, May 1st, at the Fredericktown Raceway and will once again be featuring the UMP Late Models, RAMS Mini Stocks, IMCA style Modifieds and the 600cc Multis.

In addition to this make-up, track promoter Denny Keith has announced that if the Friday night show at the Fredericktown Raceway is cancelled it will be run Sunday afternoon. Gates will open at 1 p.m. Sunday (if needed) with racing starting around 3.

For more information about any of these shows phone (573) 78DRIVE.
