Once again mother nature crashed the party at Wiscasset Raceway. Track officials were hopeful to get in the scheduled program at "Maine's Center of Speed", but for the fourth time this season were forced to pull the plug due to a heavy blanket of drizzle and fog moving through the midcoast region. The full pre-race practice schedule was run leading up to the start of the show, but the decision was made to stop the program just prior to the 5:00pm start time with the intensity of the drizzle increasing. As a result fans missed out on their opportunity to see the True Value Modified Series in its first ever appearance at the states fastest track. The Wiscasset Ford 100 will now be rescheduled as part of the Saturday August 9th program. Plans for makeup races for track's weekly racing series divisions have not been announced. Wiscasset Raceway will next return to action Saturday July 5th at 5:00pm with action in all six weekly racing series divisions plus a huge fireworks show to celebrate the Independence Day holiday. For more information, call the Wiscasset Raceway office at (207) 882-4271 or check the track website at www.wiscassetraceway.info.
