(WOODHULL, N.Y.) - Mother Nature has taken her first checkered flag of 2016.
Her "April Fool's" joke this past weekend, dumping several inches of snow on the Southern Tier has forced owners Ted and Brandi White to cancel the open practice session scheduled for Saturday.
"Obviously, we didn't need this snowfall," White said. "We were ready to go for practice this week but that snow changed things quite a bit."
Saturday April 16th will be opening night to start the 52nd consecutive season of racing on the third-mile Steuben County oval sponsored by Ted White Trucking. The Insinger Performance 370 Modifieds will have April 16th and 23rd off with their opening show taking place on April 30th.
This night will put all support divisions on center stage including the SLW Awards 360 Late Models, NAPA Crate Sportsman, Joe Willcox Performance Automatics Street Stocks, Daugherty Auto Sales Mini Stocks, Woodhull Auto Supply Front Wheel Drives and Daugherty Auto Sales Warriors.
Gates will swing open on Opening Night at 4:30PM with Scott Lyon’s first green flag of 2016 waving promptly at 6:30PM.
