Action resumes next Sunday night as Paul’s Auto Body will present a complete race program along with the first visit of the TUSA Mod-Lite Series, it will also be photo and autograph night so bring your camera! Please note that the double features announced for Semi-Pro and Mini-Stock will be removed from the schedule for next Sunday, with 3 cancellations, this left no choice for management.

Again, Ron Morin and his management team would like to express their regrets for all the difficult decisions taken over the last few weeks.
