Rain Forces Chemung To Cancel
by Carol Houssock
Persistent showers forced Chemung Speedrome management to
pull the plug on the Saturday program early in the day,
saving travelers from unnecessary travel to the track.
Race teams and fans are reminded that there will be no racing at the
track this Saturday, July 8th.
But, we will roar back into action the next Saturday (July 15th) with a
night of special tributes to Ed McGuire. A longtime racer
and car owner, Ed has been a fixture in the twin tiers of
northern PA and southern NY. The 'Tribute to Ed McGuire'
will include a 51-lap feature for the headline Sunoco
Modifieds, paying $1,500 to win. Ed sported the number 51 on
his many cars over the years. Many special bonuses and
awards will be presented on this night when the Speedrome
gives Ed a 'thank you' for all he has done and meant to
countless racers. The track's other regular divisions (Super
Stocks, 4 Cylinders, INEX Legends, and the Bowen Racecars
Bandoleros) will all be in action. Pits open at 4,
Grandstand gate opens and practice begins at 5, and the
first heat race hits the track at 6 PM. Admission is $13 for
adults, $11 for seniors ages 65+, $5 for kids ages 6-12, and
free for kids ages 5 and under.
Chemung Speedrome is a home track under the NASCAR sanction.
