Severe Weather Forces Postponement Of Saturday’s Firecracker 100 Finale At Lernerville Speedway
Final Night of Crown Jewel Event to Run As Labor Day Weekend Doubleheader With Lernerville's Working Man 50 Sept. 4-5
SARVER, Pa. - June 27, 2015 - Bands of evening showers and severe weather forced the postponement of Saturday's final night of the ninth annual Firecracker 100 presented by GottaRace.com at Lernerville Speedway. The event has been rescheduled for Saturday, September 5, setting up a Labor Day Weekend doubleheader with Lernerville's Working Man 50 on Friday, September 4.
With the postponement, the Late Model National Open weekend originally scheduled as a two-race event September 5-6 at Selinsgrove (Pa.) Speedway will now be a single event only on Sunday, September 6.
"We really appreciate all of the fans and drivers that stuck around in hopes of completing this event," expressed Lernerville Speedway General Manager Gary Risch Jr. "We did everything in our power to get all three days in, but could not overcome all of the rain this evening, and tomorrow's forecast doesn't look much more promising. As such, we decided to move the third night of the Firecracker to create a two-day show along with the Working Man 50 on Labor Day Weekend."
Fans need to keep their tickets and wristbands to exchange for admission to the makeup event. New ticket purchases for the rescheduled date will be the same posted price of $40 for Adult Reserved or General Admission. Tickets for the Working Man 50 will remain $29. A two-day package for the Working Man 50 and the Firecracker 100 makeup event will also be available. The price of the package will be announced at a later date.
"We are as frustrated as anyone that we couldn't complete the Firecracker 100 weekend as planned," said WoO LMS Director Tim Christman. "We would like to thank Charlie Paige at Selinsgrove Speedway for accommodating the postponement. We look forward to a great Labor Day Weekend between the two tracks."
