VERNON, NY- Heavy thunderstorms on Mother's Day has forced Utica-Rome Speedway management to use their raindate of Thursday, June 19, but not without some changes. On June 19, the event's program sponsored by FX Caprara Car Companies, will consist of the Turning Stone Casino DIRT 358-Modified Super DIRT Series, a regular points show for the DIRT Pro Stocks, and Four Cylinder Stocks. Gates will open at 4 p.m., with time trials at 6:30 p.m., and racing at 7 p.m.
Originally scheduled to accompany the Turning Stone Casino DIRT 358-Modifieds Super DIRT Series, was the Sunoco Race Fuels Super DIRT Series for the DIRT Sportsman which will not be run on this evening to avoid conflict with the Sportsman event at Can-Am Motorsports Park and will be rescheduled at a later date. Instead, the DIRT Pro Stocks will compete in a regular points event instead. Also added to the night's events will be the Four Cylinder Stocks, which normally compete at the New Afton Speedway, Thunder Mountain Speedway, Skyline Raceway, and Brewerton Speedway.
This coming Sunday, May 18, Canastota Kartway presents Turning Stone Casino Employees Night featuring a regular show of DIRT 358-Modifieds, Sportsman, and Pure Stocks. The Pro Stocks will compete in a non-point event to allow Utica-Rome Speedway competitors to compete in an Empire Sports Network Super DIRT Series event at Rolling Wheels Raceway. The ever popular ono-on-one spectator race is also scheduled for this Sunday.
Utica-Rome Speedway is located on Route 5 in Vernon, NY and normally operates every Sunday night from May to September. A normal program consists of the DIRT 358-Modifieds, DIRT Sportsman, DIRT Pro Stocks, and Pure Stocks.
