We tried to get them to come to Tennessee, but said they don't come this far south. They have a good product.

Well they do currently go farther (Florida), though February Speedweeks is a unique different deal. They have ran at Screven GA in the fairly recent past I believe and they have their inaugural race at Virginia Motor Speedway very soon. I guess they find that the sprints generally don't draw very well in the south? Its super late model country i guess! Lucas and the WoO Late models race there plenty, but even the WoO sprints don't really race at all in the south except during speedweeks, at Charlotte and at a track in Arkansas. (Though they do have their inagural Nashville race coming up soon)
Too bad....
Which track were you guys hoping they would race at in TN?

I'd love to see the All Star Circuit come out west to a decent track for a weekend or something.

Yeah the south seems more like an asphalt late model / dirt late model type setting for most fans. I think there is the United Sprint Car Series though.

I don't think they run for points in Florida.


Smoke will be in the field too.

Good, I plan on being 12 miles from Attica this weekend and can go to the race. Bad, there is a 100% chance of rain Friday and Saturday.

You are right. All along they didn't run for points there, though a year or 2 ago they did do points there i think, but it looks like in 2019 they went back to non-points. I assumed they had continued running for points there. I think its good that its back to non-points... Thats a long trip for some of the lower budget ohio teams.

This is getting to be a challenge, Attica rained out again tonight. Hoping the silver crown cars run tomorrow at Toledo...but not looking good.

Just can't get a break for All Stars at Attica!
The USAC race at Toledo has a rain date! 1pm on Sunday. Flat Rock also has a CRA Jegs All Star Tour late models 100 lap race as well as ICAR Modifeds on Sunday.

Thanks for the info.
This might be a first for me, I now hope Toledo gets moved to Sunday. Then I can take my brother and he can see the silver crown cars for the first time.

It did in fact get moved to sunday. They cancelled the CRA race at Flat Rock, so the only show going on in the region is the USAC show at Toledo. The Auto Value Super Sprints are also running their race after the USAC Silver Crown race. Should be a good show!

I saw one clear the fence easily, land on the top of a hauler and continue to the last fence in the pits. Broke an ankle and had a back injury. Out for awhile but he came back racing. hard to explain, but they had a guardrail that angled down to the ground at the beginning of turn three. It made a natural ramp/launching pad. He said he throttle stuck.

I think last night at Muskingum was the only night not being show on live online pay per view, because MAV TV was there taping it i guess.
I assume the rest will be on speed shift.

Rain is completely ruining Ohio Speedway... 3 out of 5 races rained out. Sunday at muskingum was a miracle that they got it in. Maybe they tried harder because mav tv was taping that night.

Ohio Speedweek seems kinda badass to attend one of these years

Well, lucky you didn’t come decide to do it this year! They did finally get their third night of racing in tonight (out of 6 scheduled so far), and it came with a last minute venue change . As of yesterday night today’s race was supposed to be at Atomic Speedway in Chillicothe Ohio, they changed it this morning over to Wayne County Speedway due to the forecasts! Have never heard of such last second changes, good to see them so determined to get some races in!
They look like they are in for another sure rainout at Mansfield tomorrow...
I’m hoping to make it to Limaland on Friday , it’s the only track on the speed week schedule that I’ve not been to. Weather looks ok so far.
No Chris Bell or Kyle Larson at Wayne county tonight, I guess they bailed on speedweek due to the crap weather !

^ Hilarious.

They are trying really damn hard to get some races in this week. This is the second venue switch due to the deluge of rain.

Well, I guess we can officially say that 2019 Ohio Speedweek is cursed?
We are on night 8 of 9 with 3 shows completed, tonights show (moved from Limaland to Atomic) was on heat race #3 when a sprint car went into the turn 3 grandstands (it landed in the lower rows of the grand stands).
Sounds like nobody (driver or fans) was injured. They have obviously canceled for the night..
Speedweek moves on to night #9 tomorrow to attempt to get race #4 in of the week, at Wayne County Speedway...

That's terrible. The reports on the potential fan injury are inconclusive, but suggest that any injuries are not severe.

For those who do not know at that track they put a concrete block wall in. Turned into absolutely wreck city with some violent wrecks cancelling the event

Good run for Smoke. I wish they wouldn't have thrown the yellow on the first lap, Franek in the 28F pulled off a good spin move. 10 style points at least

Stewart is running strong this year. Reutzel is good enough that he'd be top five in WoO if he ran it full-time.
