Wet Grounds Do In Racing At Spencer For Second Time In 2017
by Gary Spaid
It’s been an extremely wet
Spring this year. Heavy rains poured down around the Rochester
area on Thursday afternoon and evening causing flooding around
the flat half mile Spencer Speedway oval.
“We waited as long as possible but we can not get all of the water off
the front stretch,” stated race director Dave Johnston. “The
area between the wall and the track just seems to have more
water flowing up all the time.”
Due to this situation NASCAR racing for June 16th has been canceled. This
is the second time in five weeks of racing that Spencer has been
forced to cancel their racing program.
SPENCER SHORTS: The kids club is kicking into high gear offering a
coloring contest in the near future… …Efforts have started to
bring electronic scoring in the NASCAR Sunoco Modified division
at the track. Electronic scoring will be used this coming week
in the Lighthouse Lanes Small Block Supermodifieds.
This coming Friday, June 23, sees the first and only appearance of the
Oswego Speedway’s Lighthouse Lanes Small Block Supermodifieds at
Spencer Speedway in 2017. The NY SuperStocks have also been
added to the race card, along with the three main NASCAR
divisions at Spencer; the NASCAR Sunoco Modifieds, Super Sixes
and Grandpa Dog 4-cylinder Scorpions. Race time starts at 7:00
Spencer Speedway is located just fifteen minutes east of Rochester, NY,
along Route 104 in the Town of Williamson. Spencer Speedway is
the local “NASCAR Place to Race” for Central New York in 2017.
Points earned each week at Spencer are counted as part of the
national NASCAR Whelen All-American Point Chase.
