Weather Plans: RACE!!!! First and foremost we intend to race. “The Show Must Go On” mentality will be displayed by track employees and race officials. We will do everything in our power to see that all events go off as they are scheduled. In the event of a rain out that night will be scratched and we will continue on with the program as scheduled. The forecast is showing a chance of pop up showers early in the weekend with little accumulation and sunny skies for the finale night on Saturday so we hope that everyone will support us and have a great weekend. Many times in our tenure as promoters of the Tyler County Speedway we have ‘hung in there’ and not canceled including last Sunday. This will be no different as we want to provide you with as much racing as we can during your ‘racing vacation’ to “The Bullring!”
