(Mercer, PA June 1, 2019): Heavy rains hit Michaels Mercer Raceway just as practice sessions were wrapping up for Saturday evening’s racing program. “We tried to get the show in,” said track owner Ed Michaels. “But, we knew when the rain started that it was going to outlast us, so we had no choice but to cancel the program.” It was the second time this season that Michaels had to cancel with racers and fans on the grounds and ready to go.
The entire program is being pushed back a week. The Fast Five divisions will be in competition, as usual, on June 8. Joining with the kiddos bicycle races and bike give aways.. The bike races are being presented courtesy of Ray’s Racing Collectibles of Grove City and Jerry Schaffer of Ellwood City. Junior Sprints will return June 15th..
