Mother Nature Forces Postponement of Weekend Activities; Reset for April 29th

(March 22, 2011) – The forecast for blustery conditions and precipitation this weekend has forced Anderson Speedway officials to postpone this Saturday’s races featuring the Enduro 200. All weather stations and websites have predicted temperatures to fall throughout the 40’s all day Saturday with high winds and a likely chance of rain. Frigid nighttime temperatures will make it difficult for fans and competitors to endure. The practice set for Friday night has also been postponed.

“This is one of our big events of the season and I want the fans and competitors to be treated to the best possible conditions for it”, said Rick Dawson, President of Anderson Speedway. “We have a long season with many better weather days coming, consequently, I think postponing this event to a later date is in everyone’s best interest. This winter has been especially cold and wet and I’m not sure I am convinced yet that Global Warming is an issue, at least for Anderson Indiana”.

The entire event has been rescheduled for Friday, April 29th. The event will include the Enduro 200 for ThunderCars, Legends and Thunder Roadsters. “Adding this event to this date will be a special treat for the fans” said Dawson, “This will be a big weekend at the Speedway with the Enduro 200 on Friday followed by a big Night of Thrills on Saturday, April 30th.”

Racing resumes on Saturday, April 2nd and Sunday April 3rd with the first appearance of the new Anderson Late Model division, Figure 8's, Front Wheel Drive oval and the WMDH ThunderCars on Saturday night.

The USAC Sprints and Kenyon Midgets will headline racing action on Sunday, April 3rd.. Gates will open at 3:30 with racing beginning at 7 on Saturday, April 2nd with gates opening at 11:30 on Sunday, April 3rd and racing at 2:00..
