TowForce Posted August 1, 2022 Share Posted August 1, 2022 Castrol® FloRacing Night in America at 34 Raceway Canceled Tire Shortage Leads to Cancellation of August 2 event This is not how we saw this week going unfortunately. We were informed yesterday morning that the tire shortage is indeed now impacting the Castrol FloRacing Night in America event and has flowed down to our track. Unfortunately, the decision was made to cancel the event on Tuesday, August 2nd. Ben & the series team talked to several drivers who would have been there an many are simply out of tires and cannot make the trip meaning we cannot give the fans the show they deserve when drivers can't get the essentials. To say we're heartbroken is an understatement. We don't have a lot of words to express the sadness and frustration we feel having to make this post to our fans. Never in our lives would we imagine cancelling a race for tires... What a scary world we're living in. Ticket refunds have been processed and should be back in your accounts in 5-7 business days. - - - - - - - - - - - - AUSTIN, Texas (July 31, 2022) — The Castrol® FloRacing Night in America event scheduled for Tuesday, August 2 at Iowa’s 34 Raceway has been canceled due to the ongoing tire supply shortage. “We were looking forward to making our debut at 34 Raceway on Tuesday, however after talking with teams and area tire distributors over the past few days we’ve made the decision to cancel the event. Right now, most teams are low on tires or completely out, and distributors are waiting to receive more. It’s an unfortunate situation,” said series general manager Ben Shelton. “Brad (Stevens) and Jessi (Mynatt) at 34 Raceway have gone above and beyond to prepare for this big event, and I truly hate to not be able to have the race this week. It’s just one of those deals that is currently out of everyone’s control. “The event won’t be rescheduled for the 2022 season, but we are already looking ahead to making our debut at the track in 2023.” Castrol® FloRacing Night in America now returns to action on Tuesday, September 13 at Fairbury (Ill.) Speedway with the third annual One For The Road. The event will pay $22,022 to win and $1,000 to start. Joining the night’s program will be DIRTcar Modifieds.
