Waterbury, VT — The American-Canadian Tour (ACT) Lee’s Family Trailer Sales & Service 150 and Flying Tiger Oxford Open at Maine’s Oxford Plains Speedway has been postponed to Sunday, October 18 at 1:00pm.
The decision to postpone was made by track and series officials due to the weather outlook for the original Saturday, October 17 race date. The forecast calls for rain from now until early-to-mid Saturday afternoon. Furthermore, temperatures are expected to be below 50 degrees throughout the day on Saturday, making track-drying a difficult proposition.
With these things in mind, officials elected to push the ACT season finale back one more day. The Sunday outlook is for sunny weather and a high of 60 degrees, meaning much more favorable conditions in which to crown the 2020 ACT champion.
The pits will open at 7:00am on Sunday with practice beginning at 9:30am. A full schedule of events will be announced shortly.
“Given the circumstances, both us and Oxford this is the best decision,” ACT managing partner Cris Michaud said. “Both the ACT Late Model Your season-ender and the Tiger Open are big events for the teams involved, and you want the best racing conditions possible. We clearly weren’t going to get those on Saturday. Sunday looks a lot better, so we look forward to seeing everyone then either at the track or live on Speed51.TV.”
General admission is $25 with limited fan attendance. A live pay-per-view of the event will also be available for $25 on Speed51.TV. Visit www.speed51.TV to learn more or sign-up.
