Friday’s show falls to rain, USMTS Casey’s Cup Series battle for $3,000 to win Saturday at Junction Motor Speedway
June 1, 2012
McCOOL JUNCTION, Neb. -- Rain drops began to fall with two laps remaining in the first heat race Friday night at the Junction Motor Speedway, and by the time the checkered flag waved the rain was coming down hard enough to force officials to cancel the remainder of the program for the USMTS Casey’s Cup Series powered by Swan Energy.
The 9th Annual Nebraska Shootout will now be a one-day show on Saturday paying $3,000 to win.
Two-time event winner Jon Tesch won the heat race with 2010 winner and defending USMTS National Champion Ryan Gustin finishing second ahead of Stormy Scott.
The first heat race on Saturday takes the green flag at 7:00 while the ticket window opens at 5:00 for spectators. Saturday’s racing card will be rounded out with NASCAR Late Models, B-Mods and Hobby Stocks.
Admission is just $15 for adults, $4 for kids ages 6 to 12 and children ages 5 and under get in for free. Pit passes are $30, but NASCAR members get in for $20 on Saturday.
Race fans can pick up discount coupons good for $2 off adult admission at Casey’s General Stores locations in Aurora, Geneva and York. For more information or to find the location nearest you, visit www.caseys.com online.
