Once again last Friday the weather refused to cooperate with Big Diamond Speedway allowing the 2019 to get underway. Arriving at the track last Friday, bright sunshine covered the area. However, the sunshine quickly turned to clouds just as race time approached with rain following shortly thereafter.
With a great field of 32 modifieds on hand along with 25 sportsman, the track was forced to postpone the nights racing after the completion of two Road Runner heats and one Street Stock heat when the rain started to fall.
The drivers did have a chance to take to the track for warmups and sample the new clay surface that was put down over the winter and from all reports the drivers were very positive and upbeat and are looking forward to getting the chance to race on it.
All wristbands from the May 3rd event can be used for free admission at the point of purchase for this Friday May 10th when the track once again will attempt to get the season underway with No Sweat Service Group Night along with Little League Night.
The action on the track will feature a 30-lap feature event for the Insigner Performance 358 Modifieds paying a cool $4000 to the winner along with a 20-lap, $1000 to win feature race for the USS Achey Sportsman The Savage 61 Road Runners and the Eash’s Towing & Recovery Street Stocks will once again be in action to complete the program.
