BETHEL, NY – Dreary conditions and intermittent heavy rainfall greeted Bethel Motor Speedway management and track crew this morning, scheduled to be the final track points event of the 2015 season. The track crew made a valiant effort to dry the track surface well in advance of the gate opening time, only to be met with persistent showers, cold temperatures, and cloud cover that made that effort futile. As a result, track management was forced to postpone the events scheduled for Saturday night, October 3rd.
The gates at Bethel Motor Speedway will still swing open for the scheduled Sunday races October 4th. INEX Legends and Bandoleros will run two feature events. The first feature will be for track points, INEX points, trophies, and payout (for Legends). The second feature will be for INEX points and trophies only. Each feature will have separate qualifying – time trials for the Legends and a B-main if needed, and heat races for the Bandoleros. Gates open at 12 noon, with practice at 2 pm and racing set to go green at 3 pm.
On Saturday, October 10th, the speedway will make up the twin 25-lap races for the BMS Modified, 358/Sportsman, Pro Stock, Street Stock, and 4 Cylinder Advanced and Novice classes. Time permitting, an officials’ race will be run at the conclusion of the night. Gates will open at 2:30 pm, with hot laps at 4:30 pm, and racing beginning at 6 pm.
