Rain interrupts Coalcracker 72 night at Big Diamond  

With the Crate Sportsman consolation race on the track, Mother Nature decided to throw a wrench into everyone’s party. After one lap was complete, the rains hit the track and hit it hard resulting in the cars being told to head to the pits to wait out the rain. Once the rain stopped, the track crew tried to dry out the track, but the damage had been done. With the high humidity and more rain on the horizon, the hard decision was made to postpone the remainder of the show. With Monday’s forecast not favorable, promoter Jake Smulley made the ultimate decision to have the remainder of the Coalcracker show run next Friday night September 9th. Details to follow.   Read More..
