MARYVILLE, TN (July 6, 2013)—Due to lots of heavy rain that has pounced the 4/10 Mile facility of Smoky Mountain Speedway over the last three days and more looming skies and rain showers forecasted for the rest of the day and into the rest of the weekend, the Management Team of Smoky Mountain Speedway along with Ultimate Series officials have decided to cancel tonight’s racing program.
