  • Lancaster National Speedway could only get two heat races in before thunderstorms rolled in and rained out the remainder of the X-Press Signs Stock Series program on Saturday night. The Roaming Buffalo 4-Cylinders ran their two heat races, with Bobby Woch and Dan Dressel earning wins in their respective heats. An attempt was made to dry the track, but the amount of moisture combined with high humidity and the threat of more rain forced track officials to postpone the show. The Ken Heckler Tribute 51 Street Stock race as well as the Kids Night festivities will now take place on Saturday, August 26 as part of Big Rig Night. Rain checks from the event will be honored on August 26 or on September 9 for Season Championship Night. They will not be good for the Saturday, August 19, which is the 28th annual Tommy Druar/Tony Jankowiak Memorial 110 Race of Champions Modified Series event. The Advance Auto Parts Street Stocks, Roaming Buffalo 4-Cylinders and NYPA TQ Midgets will also be in action. Find out more at
