WHEELERSBURG, OH-A day that started off under sunny skies quickly turned into a bad evening of racing as a big line of thunderstorms was seen on the radar approaching the speedway in the late afternoon. At approximately 7:00 pm with the storms right on the speedway, track officials made the call to go ahead and cancel the races to give people time to clear the facility before the storms hit. About 15-20 minutes after the cancelation, the skies opened up as rain began pouring onto the facility and did so for about an hour.
