Ocala Speedway Succumbs to Heavy Rains

. Posted in Racing News

While racers and fans might think that a rainout on a beautiful weather night is some sort of April Fools joke, the unfortunate truth is that the Friday, April 1st program at Ocala Speedway was washed out by torrential rains that fell through much of the week, resulting in a muddy track that could not be dried out in time for racing.  So on a day where the sun shined brightly and temperatures were in the 70's, things will be dark and quiet at Florida's oldest speedway tonight. Some estimates show that up to 5 inches of rain fell on Ocala Speedway over Wednesday and Thursday, which led to the Friday cancellation.

While this week's races fell victim to the wet conditions, the Mini Stocks will get a reprieve and will be added to the schedule for Friday, April 8th.  In addition to the Mini Stocks, fans will see action from the Late Models, Hobby Stocks, Amsoil V8 Thunder Stocks, and the Gladiators.  Other than the Mini Stocks being added to the schedule for next week, there are no plans to make up any of the other canceled races.

And April 8th will be the final night of regular racing at Ocala Speedway before the Monster Jam Summer Tour returns with the top monster trucks in the nation live, up close, and in person, performing on the infield at America's Dirt Track.  For ticket information, or to see the complete racing schedule, please visit us online at www.OcalaSpeedway.com.
