Hartford, OH June 23, 2018 Continual rain in recent days that have saturated the grounds along with more rain in the forecast throughout the afternoon and evening has forced Sharon Speedway to cancel the June 23 racing program. The rainout marks the fifth in the past seven Saturdays, the seventh in 11 scheduled race events, and ninth overall in 13 nights if you count the two lost open practices to open the month of April.
Coming up on next Saturday (June 30) will be a Menards “Super Series” event featuring the “410” Sprint Cars for $3,000 to-win plus the RUSH Sportsman Modifieds, Stock Cars, and Econo Mods on Thompson Fab Night. It will be Armed Forces Night.
Then on Monday, July 2 will be the rescheduled “Steel Valley 50″ featuring the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series in a $12,000 to-win event along with the HTMA/Precise Racing Products RUSH Sportsman Modifieds. The event is presented by Barris Truck Service and Performance Bodies. Reserved tickets are on sale by going to SharonSpeedway.com and clicking on ‘buy tickets” at the top left of the home page.
