Sidewinder Sprints – Susquehanna - Rain takes it 2nd for the year

With the colder winter temps seemingly behind us, the Sidewinder teams were eager to get back to the high speed Susquehanna and try out the two feature format on the Susky red clay. Without warning a small pop up rain cell appeared at the critical track preparation time. Unfortunately, despite the best efforts of the track team, the high humidity and lower temperatures put a stop to their efforts. All Sidewinder teams that signed in received their 50 “rainout points”.

Next week we make our debut at Linda’s Speedway. With some of the regular Linda’s 600 teams already expressing their intent to defend their home turf and challenge the Sidewinders ( just remember 825lbs and a hard tires ( see our website rules for details), the stage looks set for a fantastic Friday night of short track action. The twin feature /passing points format allows everyone an equal chance for success.

As an incentive, those 600 teams will not have to pay an additional fee this week. (however you are not eligible for contingencies or year end point fund monies).

This week’s questions;

Q. With the return to Susquehanna, will we see a first time Susky winner ?

A. Rain took it’s 2nd for the year. We regroup and try again next month.

Next Weeks Question;

Q. With the Sidewinders making their Linda’s Speedway debut and a few of the regular 600cc teams already expressing their interest in taking them on, will a Linda’s regular take a win ?
