Change in Speedway lineup



The Mel Kenyon Midget Series will not be a part of Saturday’s Casey’s General Store Salute To Fathers Classic race program at Salem Speedway due to a lack of entries, reports Speedway officials.

Salem Speedway track management was informed on Wednesday morning by Kenyon Midget officials that only four cars were expected for what was going to be the first Salem visit by the Kenyon Series.

“We’re certainly disappointed by this unexpected turn of events,” said a Salem Speedway track spokesperson.  “We apologize to our fans and those that were looking forward to seeing the midgets return to Salem.”

The Lucas Oil Great American Stocks and Towzone Kentuckiana Legends Series are still slated to race at Salem on Saturday. Spectator gates open at 4 p.m., with practice at 4:15, qualifications at 6 p.m. and the first race at 7:15 p.m. (EDT)
