Dirt Track Nationals Event Cancelled
For Immediate Release – St. Cloud, Minnesota– July 23rd, 2015
St. Cloud, Minnesota based FYE Motorsports Promotions has decided to cancel the Dirt Track Nationals event that was scheduled to be held at the Granite City Speedway in Sauk Rapids, Minnesota on August 6th-8th. The event was scheduled to be the largest paying event in the WISSOTA’s Midwest Modified division history, but due to a much smaller number of pre entered drivers than expected and other concerns of the timing of the event, event promoter Chris Stepan has decided to put it on hold.
Stepan said ‘the buzz around the event when we originally announced it back in March was outstanding and the event format and payout was also awesome, but many racers that I have spoken to recently have expressed concern with the timing of the event as well as other circumstances that were potentially going to keep them from attending, so we felt that the right thing to do was to cancel the event for now before getting everyone here and having a less than ideal event. Maybe we can re-think the timing and hold this event at a time that is better suited for most people and can still bring this event to the drivers and fans of WISSOTA-country.’
Any drivers that pre-entered will be receiving their pre entry fee back. Thank you for your understanding, thanks for the support, sorry for any inconvenience this may cause and good luck the remainder of 2015.
It should be noted that the Granite City Speedway will still hold racing action on both Friday and Saturday nights (August 7th & 8th) with complete WISSOTA-sanctioned programs for Modifieds, Super Stocks, Midwest Modifieds, Mod Fours and Hornets. The Street Stocks and Pure Stocks will have the weekend off. Feature winner bonuses have been added to each night by Granite City sponsor Wild Country 99 increasing the winning payouts for each class each night. Modifieds will be racing for $750 to win each night. Super Stocks will be racing for $600 to win each night. Midwest Modifieds will be running for $500 to win nightly. Mod Fours will be racing for $400 to win a night and the Hornets will be racing for $150 to win each night.
