Woodhull, NY- After a successful Jim Williams Memorial Event last Saturday which featured absolutely perfect summer weather, this past week was anything but perfect as numerous heavy rain and thunderstorms pelted the Twin Tiers Region of Upstate New York dousing the area with several inches of rain including a severe storm Friday afternoon which completely flooded the track and infield of the facility.
The track ownership knew late day Friday that they were going to need a miracle to get the track ready for Saturday’s action. The entire place was saturated including all the parking lots and pit area and even with a much better forecast showing improvement throughout the day it was just to wet.
It has not yet been determined when the NAPA Sponsored Sportsman King of the Ring will be made up. The participating NAPA Auto Parts Store representatives from Addison, Bath, Corning, Hornell, Wellsville and Lawrenceville, Pa. will return to Woodhull along with Two Rivers Timber to co-sponsor the Short Track Super Series Modified Event on Tuesday, August 10, 2021.
The Addison Eagles Club who was scheduled to be onboard with the July 3 show will be back at Woodhull in two weeks along with the New York State Stock Car Association to help celebrate the Annual Christmas in July Bicycle Give Away on July 17.
S and D Pools of Avoca who was included in as a nightly sponsor on July 3 will be back at Woodhull on August 21 to join Southern Tier Logistics and Larry’s Latrines to welcome the Patriot Sprint Tour to the facility.
Up next at Woodhull it will be a Regular Great 8 program with all of Woodhull’s weekly divisions seeing race action with Hatfield Real Estate of Elmira as the nightly event sponsor.
Gates for the July 10 show for both pit and grandstand entry is at 4:30 pm with the first qualifying heat of the night going green at 6:30 pm.
