Moderate to heavy rains, which began soaking the Rockford Speedway around 3 PM, have continued into the late afternoon and cancelled July 5th’s ‘Wild Wednesday’ racing program.
Heavy rains have saturated all of Rockford Speedway’s parking lots and pit area and have currently flooded the infield. These factors, coupled with a newly issued Flood Advisory for the immediate area, have forced officials to cancel tonight’s program.
Races for the Original Sixers and Hornets will be added to future racing programs thanks to this and other rainouts in 2017.
