Weather Alters Schedule at Mercer Raceway Park Again

Mercer, PA (March 25, 2015): Wet grounds and colder temperatures prevailing through race day forced Mercer Raceway Park to adjust its schedule once again. The Chiller Thriller, set for Saturday, March 28, has been pushed back a week, to April 4. Point racing for the six classes making up a Saturday Night Live program will begin April 11, weather permitting, of course. The Jack Frost Enduro will take place on Sunday, April 12, along with the Snowflake 25.

“We are disappointed to lose another week of racing,” said track manager Frank Benic. “But, we had no choice. The grounds are too wet to do the work necessary to race, and the weekend temperatures could lead to freezing track conditions.”

So, the full-fendered fury will take place on April 4. The ULMS Late Models, unsanctioned Crate Late Models, UEMS Modifieds, and Open Stocks will be on tap tat day. Gates will open at 4 p.m., with racing starting at 6 p.m.
