Wet Grounds Force Lincoln Speedway Cancellation

(Lincoln, IL) Saturated grounds from several days of rain have forced the cancellation of the Sunday, June 16 event at Lincoln Speedway, in Lincoln, IL.  On tap were the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midgets in addition to Micros, Pro Late Models, Modifieds, and the Nutech Seed DII Midgets. Heavy rains throughout the day on Saturday, in addition to another wave of overnight rain into Sunday proved to be too much for the ¼-mile facility.  Pit parking in addition to the horse track that surrounds the ¼-mile track are overly saturated, forcing the cancellation.
