March Madness Rescheduled For March 29th
With the high potential of
inclement weather moving in today, and more this weekend March Madness at
Cherokee Speedway has been rescheduled. The event has been moved to a ONE DAY
EVENT on Sunday March 29th. The speedway will release all details, including a
new format once we have it all worked out. "Ultimately, we must make the best
decision we can based on the information that we are given along with keeping
our teams and fans in mind. We (SAS, SECA, Cherokee) watched the forecast change
very minimal over the past few days and we really have no option without asking
the teams and the fans to jump into a bad situation with us. That is not how
anyone involved wants to kick off the season." stated Lennie Buff.
