McKean County Raceway hosted a rare Saturday night event, but mother nature came into nearly halfway through the program to end the evening. The big night of racing featuring 8 divisions plus autograph night saw six of the 8 divisions get their qualifying heats in the program before a drizzling rain set in.
“We tried to hold out as we the track was still useable but the persistent rain wouldn’t leave us, stated MCR promoter, Chris Zuver.” “All day it was predicted to rain, but we had very little rain and we tried to beat mother nature at her own game but she got the last laugh on us again.”
This puts MCR into two nights of racing this coming week with the 30th annual Lee Anderson Memorial for the street stocks on the program for Thursday night along with their normal card for RUSH Late Models, RUSH Pro Mods, Pure Stocks, Mini Stocks and Mandy’s Young Guns. Thursday’s program starts at 730pm. Then on Sunday, the same six divisions will run again on the 3/8 mile oval in East Smethport with a 6pm start time.
Race fans that were at MCR, Saturday night can use their wristbands from Saturday night postponed event for admission on Thursday or Sunday night races. The wristbands are also good for Night number 1 of the 11th annual MCR Fall Classic on Thursday, September 28 when the conclusion o Saturday rain out event will be completed to kick off the Fall Classic weekend.
