Smoky Mountain Speedway Ultimate Race cancelled July 6th due to inclement weather


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. A rain date between both parties wasn’t immediately determined but will be released upon completion of securing a suitable date which will hopefully be made by this coming Monday.


The next event for Smoky Mountain Speedway will be Friday Night July 26th as Ray Cook’s Schaeffer’s Oil Southern Nationals invades Smoky Mountain Speedway for the second-time for a 53-lap $5,300 to win event. Last year saw an exciting battle brew between Chris Madden and Mike Marlar with Marlar coming out on top and claiming the event win after passing race leader Chris Madden in lapped traffic. Sure to be another can’t miss event coming up in just a few short weeks.
