After reeling off 22 straight racing programs, Lincoln Speedway was forced to bow to the weather Saturday night, August 22nd. With the threat of rain all around the Central Pennsylvania area, Lincoln Speedway promoters Bob and Don Leiby, along with Alan Kreitzer, were hopeful as the a light drizzle began to fall just 15 minutes before the gates were scheduled to open.
With no significant change in the radar after two hours of watching and waiting, the promoters were forced to cancel the racing program.
"Kids Night" has been rescheduled for next Saturday, August 29th. It was also the second of two York County Racing Club Nights on the season, and promoters will check with the club before rescheduling the next club night before season’s end.The 358 sprint cars now have just one event remaining on the season, the 358 Sprint Car Championship to be held on Saturday, September 12th. That puts Dale Hammaker in the driver’s seat for the 2009 "358" sprint point championship. He has a 165 point lead on Glenndon Forsythe heading into the final event. The only other driver who has a mathematical shot at the point title is defending champ Jeff Rohrbaugh, who is 180 points behind Hammaker.
