Spencer And "Mother Nature" Are Even; Three Races, Three
by Gary Spaid
For the third time in 2017
Spencer Speedway officials have been forced to cancel racing at
the famed half mile oval. The first two occurrences were due to
wet grounds and flooded pit area. Last week the pits were
flooded and water kept running across the front stretch. This
week the rains keep falling.
“Persistent afternoon rains have done us in again,” stated track promoter
John White. “We were really looking forward to the five division
program we had scheduled for tonight.”
This will be the fourth year, since 2011, that Spencer lost three racing
programs to the weather prior to the July 4th weekend.
On the schedule were the Lighthouse Lanes Small Block Supermodifieds and
the NYS Superstocks as added classes to the regular NASCAR
Sunoco Modifieds, Super Sixes and Grandpa Dog 4-cylinder
Officials are getting together with Lighthouse Lanes Small Block
Supermodified officials to see if a date can be set to
reschedule their appearance at Spencer Speedway. As for the NY
SuperStocks, they are scheduled to appear again at Spencer on
