I am truly sorry to inform you that the NORRCA World Sedan Cup is CANCELLED. The race will not be put on due to lack of entries by race dead line and other NORRCA asst. I am sure that we will have many entries coming in and sign ups at race week, but as a promoter and owner of SpeedWorld Raceway I cannot take the chance financially to invest in trophies and other cost to host a race and not have more than we need to cover cost. At this time we only have 8 entries and that is just not enough to host the race. I have already spent a few hundred dollars and time promoting with fliers, phone calls and fax’s, but that is part of promoting and money was well spent even if the race is not put on.
I am canceling because if I do not cancel this NORRCA event now and 1 month ahead off race date, there will be racers purchasing plane tickets, planning on traveling and planning on taking time off work it would not be fair to them and their families. I also do not want this race to turn into a local club race with 40 local drivers at this event. Because of repercussions in the long run following after the race is over, if I do not step up and make the decision to cancel, this race will be on the internet sites being slammed about the race was a joke, how the race was not supported and many other reasons I am sure that will come up to destroy the race and the facility who ran the race. I feel that SpeedWorld Raceway has host some great races in the past and I will not be part of being slammed and be blamed for a decision I could off made early. I am sure not to many owners have cancelled a race at this caliber in the past, but this is decision that I must make and feel that it is the right one for the racers and families.
I am truly sorry and I surely hope you understand.
All entries will be returned in full payment and mailed out on Aug 27 this coming Wed.
