Cowtown Speedway was a winter wonderland.
From Darin Short out at Cowtown Speedway:
Cowtown Speedway (Kennedale)
Feb. 12 (Friday)
Twenty-four hours ago, “1 to 3 inches of snow” was predicted for the DFW area, and Cowtown Speedway was prepared to accommodate by shuffling the weekend schedule to Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 13-14. But the reality turned into an all-time DFW record 24-hour snowfall total – in excess of 11 inches.
So, instead of fighting Mother Nature on Valentine’s Day weekend, Cowtown Speedway is rescheduling and moving the entire Cowtown Midget Championships, Fast 50 and ASCS2 series events ahead three weeks, to the first weekend in March. The exact weekend schedule will be announced early next week.
Track promoter Bo Rawdon comments: “We have equipment to move the snow, but many of our teams and fans don’t and can’t even get out of their driveway, so in the interest of safety, we’ll just postpone this event and hopefully the next all-time record weather event won’t happen on that weekend too.”
A field of 177 drivers from 11 states have entered the event in advance. For those teams returning in March, they are still entered and there is nothing additional those teams need to do. If you are one of those teams that cannot return the first weekend in March, simply e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with your intent to withdraw from the event by Feb. 28. New entries will be accepted at the track Web site, and registration is up and running.
To those fans that purchased advanced two-day passes, the same applies. If you are coming the first weekend in March, then there is nothing further you need to do. If you cannot make it, please e-mail email@example.com by Feb. 28.
Again, no one predicted a ‘historic’ weather event in the DFW area, but now that it has happened, we’ll clean up the mess and try it again in March. Click www.cowtownspeedway.com for the latest in event news.
