Rain Forces Change of Schedule at Two Southeast Iowa Tracks

Persistent rain, cloudy skies and cool temperatures have a forced two southeast Iowa tracks to postpone their events that were scheduled for tonight, Friday May 21st.

The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt series event at 34 Raceway near Burlington has been postponed until Sunday night May 23rd. The pit gates will open at 2 p.m., grandstands open at 3 p.m. with qualifying set for 6 p.m. and races to follow. The 305 c.i. Sprint Cars will run in support of the national touring series Late Models.

The music concert that is scheduled for Saturday night at 34 is still on but will be moved to the parking area so fans are reminded to bring a lawn chair. For more info visit

Tonight's weekly racing action at the Lee County Speedway in Donnellson has been cancelled one again by inclement weather. With this being the fourth time in five attempts to run a Friday night show at Donnellson this year, promoters Terry and Jenni Hoenig have decided to go racing tomorrow night instead. The racing on Saturday night May 22nd will be a draw/redraw format for the Modifieds, Sport Mods, Stock Cars, Hobby Stocks and Wild things with gates opening at 5 p.m., hot laps at 6:30 and racing at 7 p.m. Since there will be no track or IMCA points awarded there will be no track or entry fees required and no IMCA license needed. Weekly rules will apply to all five classes. For more information go to

Forecasts call for sunny skies and much warmer weather for the weekend so get on out and enjoy the fun!
