Opening Night once again washed out at Muskingum County SpeedwayMuskingum County Speedway

(May, 21 2016) DRESDEN, OHIO (5/21/16) – Heavy overnight rains and a relentless mist have forced officials at Muskingum County Speedway to postpone Saturday’s event. The first race of the year will now be the Jim Dunn Memorial qualifier on Friday, June 17.

Track promoter Donnie Moran and his staff are considering futWure dates to possibly reschedule tonight’s show dubbed “The Memorial”, which pays tribute to several friends and drivers of the track who have passed away over the years.

“It’s just been an unforgiving Spring,” Moran said. “We worked hard to get everything ready for tonight, but the heavy overnight rains, constant mist, and lack of sun to dry things out gives us no choice but to postpone tonight’s show.”

The next event on the schedule will be the Jim Dunn Memorial qualifier/ Busch 30 on Friday, June 17. The winner of that night’s Late Model feature will be guaranteed a starting spot in the prestigious $12,000 to win Jim Dunn Memorial the following night at Ohio Valley Speedway in Lubeck, WV. The other divisions racing on Friday, June 17 will be announced soon.

Opening Night at Muskingum County Speedway Washed Out

(April, 29th 2016) With a gloomy forecast and a near 100% chance of rain on the horizon, officials at Muskingum County Speedway have elected to cancel Saturday’s season opener. The first race of the year will now be Saturday, May 21.

With all the weather models predicting long, steady showers beginning Saturday afternoon and not diminishing until late Sunday, promoter Donnie Moran and his staff have cancelled the event early as a courtesy to the fans and drivers in an effort to save some a long voyage to the speedway.

“We really hate having to cancel,” Moran said, “but with the dismal forecast, we have no choice. The last thing we want to do is get all of our fans and drivers in the gate and then have the rains hit.”

The rained out event will not be rescheduled and the season opener will now take place on Saturday, May 21. The divisions racing on that night will be announced shortly. On May 21, the Pit Gates will open at 4:00pm, General Admissions gates will open at 5:00pm, and Racing is slated to get underway at 7:00pm.
