Humberstone Speedway canceled its scheduled Super Mario’s Pizza Sunday Night racing program due to rain. So far this season, Humberstone Speedway has just raced two full nights of action.

“We canceled to due to the heavy and severe thunderstorms that were in the forecast during the scheduled race time and for the thunderstorms that were in the area throughout the afternoon and early evening,” said Humberstone Speedway General Manager Bob Davidson. “We canceled early enough to give our drivers, fans, and officials a chance to celebrate Father’s Day with their family and also we did not want to open the gates just to cancel prior to race time. We want to get the races in, no one wants to more than we do. But with the severe weather, we wanted our drivers, crews, officials, and fans safe and out of harm's way when it comes to the weather.”

Humberstone will be back in action on Sunday, June 25 as J N’E Towing and Country 89 presents the first appearance of the season by the Crate Sprint Cars. The PC Works DIRTcar Sportsman, Maple Leaf Foods RUSH Late Models, Cosco Haulage Mini Stocks, and the Mike Knapp Ford Pro 4 Trucks will all be in action as well as round two of the Cooper Motorsports Minivans of Mayhem Series. Pit gates will open at 4:30 p.m., followed by grandstands at 5 p.m. and racing at 6:30 p.m. Keep up with the action at
