Summer Nationals Feature Called Complete

Posted 21 Jun 2017 in Featured, Front Page, Uncategorized

It has been determined that the Late Model portion for our Summer Nationals race this past Saturday is now a complete show. With the drivers having other commitments on Monday, June 19th, which is their only free day on the relentless Hell Tour schedule, making up the race tonight was not possible. The drivers will be scored the way they ran on lap 20 when the rain came.
After the Late Model B-Main, we have to allow some time for those drivers to get ready for the A-Main, so we did a very quick intermission with some track prep to try and make for the best races possible for everybody. We then did a quick run through of the pits because we wanted to send the Late Models out first, and it was clear we would have a staging delay if we did that. Most of the cars were still sitting on their lifts getting ready. Whether we waited on them to get to staging, or sent out the crate modifieds and cut their race short as we did, the result likely would have been nearly the same.
Peoria Speedway policy is as most, once a feature is complete, it’s considered a complete show. We would then have double features on another night with a full show on top of that, and charge a new admission price.
With that being said, we will be making up the Modified and Hornet features missed this Wednesday, June 21st, your armbands and tickets will be honored from Saturday night to get in on Wednesday. We are just trying to make the best of a very unfortunate situation, therefore we are changing the policy to try and get the fans as much racing as we can, that they paid to see without incurring any more costs.
