Round 4 of AMA Pro Flat Track presented by J&P Cycles at the Allen County Fairgrounds has been cancelled. For the second time this weekend, weather has been at the forefront of problems and has resulted in the cancellation of the Lima Half-Mile. Following another heavy overnight storm, the gravel track at the Allen County Fairgrounds was left in such condition that it was deemed unsafe to race on.
"The moisture on the track simply could not be safely prepared for racing," said Dan Johnsen, Director of AMA Pro Flat Track. "We just caught some bad luck this weekend, it's very unfortunate but that's really all it comes down to."
AMA Pro Flat Track heads to Hagerstown, Md. for the Hagerstown Half-Mile on July 6, 2013. For tickets and information regarding the event, please visit www.hagerstownspeedway.com
