VERNON — Utica-Rome Speedway canceled its Sunday night, May 20 show due to rain.

“We were hoping to get the race in,” commented promoter Bill Shea “but the last round of rain late this morning and the mist made it impossible to dry the facility out enough to continue today.”

It was the fourth time in five weeks, weather has interfered with the weekly DIRTCar racing.

Racing is set to return to the Speedway on Sunday, May 27 at 6 p.m. with a Memorial Day Weekend program featuring an appearance by the Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints.

Gates open at 3.
