Rain cancels MLRA Ron Jenkins Memorial at Lucas Oil Speedway; Diamond Drag Boat Nationals still on

The Lucas Oil MLRA Ron Jenkins Memorial, scheduled for Saturday night at Lucas Oil Speedway, has been canceled due to rain.
WHEATLAND, MO. (Sept. 4, 2021) - The Lucas Oil MLRA Ron Jenkins Memorial, scheduled for Saturday night at Lucas Oil Speedway, has been canceled due to heavy overnight rain and forecast of more rain later in the day.
 
Lucas Oil MLRA Series Director Ernie Leftwich said the heavy rain has left track conditions extremely soggy any any more rain on top of what already has fallen would made conditions unsafe for drivers.
 
"We hate to cancel, but with many drivers and planning on making long drives we wanted to make the decision as early in the day as possible," Leftwich said.
 
The Lucas Oil MLRA is scheduled to return to action Oct. 1 with the Harvest Hustle at Sycamore Speedway in Maple Park, Illinois.
