Thunderstorms Wash Out Chemung; Championships on the Line This Saturday Night by Carol Houssock
TA forecast of thunderstorms in the afternoon and evening was enough to pull the plug on Chemung Speedrome’s scheduled program Saturday night.

Unfortunately for some competing in the three NASCAR divisions, that is how 2017 will shake out. Things are looking pretty good for.... Full Story
