Speedway Takes Week Off Due To Power Outages

Circle Track Management Group, promoters of the Tyler County Speedway, regretfully has decided to reschedule the Monster Truck show and mud bog scheduled for July 7 to a later date.

With thousands of West Virginia residents still suffering from last Friday's storm that left Tyler County and many West Virginia residents without power, officials felt it would be in the best interest of the local community to reschedule Michael Vaters' Monster Truck show to a later date.

As local businesses strive to get reopened and everyone feeling the heatwave, CTMG will look to a future date that would be more fan friendly.

"With the forecasted heat on Saturday expected to reach record highs of over 100 degrees and with several thousand nearby residents still without power, we just didn't feel right about trying to have an event this weekend," stated CTMG spokesman Frank Wilson Jr.

"We are still negotiating with Michael Vaters about bringing his Monster Truck Show to Tyler County Speedway in 2012, but are unsure about a date. Fans can look for an announcement very soon."

Race fans can be sure to get their racing fix on Saturday, July 14, as the Tyler County Speedway will come back with a vengeance as they will welcome back the Renegades of Dirt Modified Tour for the eighth running of the Dickson Classic.

The $2,000 to win, $200 to start event is expected to attract the region's best modified hot shoes.

Fans will see Bart Hartman, Bobby Kitchens, Lance Elson, Deanna Groves, Mark and Travis Dickson, Jess Hartman, and many more stars of the TSMA Modified division. Also on the card will be a $1,000 to win show for the STARS Modlite Grassroots series, plus racing in all other classes.
