Milan IHRA event postponed

Cayuga next stop for Spiering

MARTIN, MICHIGAN (August 25, 2007) – Heavy rain in Southeast Michigan has forced the postponement of The Fifth Annual IHRA Motor City Nationals.

The region has experienced nearly 12 inches of rain in the past six days and has completely saturated the track surface.

“The real issue is not the weather, the issue is the fact that there has been so much rain over the last few days that there was nowhere for the runoff to go,” IHRA vice president of operations Skooter Peaco said. “The storm sewers and drains in the area were full. The water sitting beneath the race track was just percolating up when the sun came out, causing unsafe racing conditions. Racer safety is always our primary concern and we could not guarantee our racers a safe race track."

IHRA officials have tentatively rescheduled the event for September 21-23.

Carl Spiering’s next stop on the Eaton Ultimate Power Trip will be the IHRA Canadian Nationals presented by PartSource, the ninth of 11 events on the $19.5 million Knoll-Gas Nitro Jam™ Drag Racing Series on September 7-9 at Toronto Motorsports Park in Cayuga, Ontario.
