Bad Weather Stops AMA In Springfield

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. – It just wasn’t in the cards. For the second time this weekend, weather has forced the rescheduling of this weekend’s AMA Pro Flat Track races at the Illinois State Fairgrounds.

Following another heavy overnight storm, both the Springfield Short Track and Springfield Mile track surfaces were left in such condition that they were deemed unsafe to race on.

Despite valiant efforts by the IMDA as they continued to work hard on getting the tracks up to par, the force of nature was too great on this Labor Day weekend.

All hope for the fans getting another opportunity to catch the AMA Pro Harley-Davidson Insurance Grand National Championship presented by Motorcycle-Superstore.com and Lucas Oil racing action in Springfield isn’t lost however, as the two races have been rescheduled for a later date.

The Short Track race will be held Sept. 15 with opening ceremonies beginning at 7 p.m. The Springfield Mile is now slated to race on the following day, Sept. 16, with opening ceremonies beginning at 1 p.m.

Next up, AMA Pro Flat Track heads to Knoxville, Iowa for the Knoxville Half-Mile on Sept. 8.
