A winter’s grip that doesn’t want to let go has caused the first cancellation of the 2014 local racing season.
Thompson Speedway officials announced Wednesday that the open practice session scheduled for Saturday on the facility’s oval has been cancelled due to weather concerns compounded by construction issues.
Thompson Speedway is in the midst of major renovations for the development of the soon to be open road course at the facility.
The open practice will not be rescheduled.
Thompson officials did announce that NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour and Whelen All-American Series inspectors will be on hand at the track from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. to perform courtesy inspections and sell NASCAR licenses.
Thompson Speedway opens its oval track for competition with the running of the Icebreaker April 5-6, with optional practice for specified divisions on April 4.
