The Race Car Test & Tune scheduled for Sunday, April 10 has been canceled for continuing unseasonable weather.
A number of variables have led up to making this decision. Most importantly, the Sunday weather forecast remains questionable. Forecasts show an overnight freeze warning into Sunday morning carrying with it a chance of rain showers. Forecasts indicate low temperatures, 90% cloud coverage, steady winds with occasional gusts and a chance of rain that dramatically increases in the afternoon.
Additionally, the lingering winter weather and overnight freezing temperatures have delayed un-winterizing all parts of the track. Should the weather have cooperated, west side restrooms and concessions for racers will not yet be in service for this Sunday.
For these reasons, Sunday’s Race Car Test & Tune has been canceled. The next opportunity for testing will be Wednesday, April 13. Gates open at 5:00 PM with time trials beginning at 5:30 PM. Racer car and driver entry fee is $20, spectators are $5 and kids 12 & younger are free.
The 2016 Sunoco Race Fuels ET Bracket Series then kicks off on Sunday, April 17.
