Lancaster National Speedway & Dragway has canceled the Franco's Pizza Friday Night IHRA Drag Racing Program for Friday, May 26 after afternoon rains dampened the facility. Track officials had planned on proceeding as scheduled with Jet Funny Car Night earlier in the day, but the late-arriving showers put an end to those plans.
"All weather indications earlier said we were in the clear, however, a new system popped up now and it started to rain at the track again," said Tim Packman, Track President. "It would have been unsafe to race down the strip, and probably miserable for any dedicated fans that showed up."
Lancaster National Speedway & Dragway has a full slate of events planned for next week. It starts Tuesday, May 30 with Test n' Tune, Junior Dragsters and Senior Nostalgia drag racing. Friday night's Franco's Pizza IHRA Drag Racing program will feature the Buffalo Street Outlaws plus all weekly classes. Saturday, June 3 is Double Wing Night for the X-Press Signs Stock Car Series with the ISMA Supermodifieds and Can-Am TQ Midgets. Keep up with the action at www.lancasternationalspeedway.com.
