GEORGETOWN, DE – Late morning rain and the forecast of showers throughout the afternoon forced the postponement of Thursday night’s ‘Tri-State Challenge’ at Georgetown Speedway.
A postponement date for the $4,000-to-win Super Late Model event will be announced in the near future as part of the Tri-State Challenge with Potomac Speedway in Budd’s Creek, Md., and Winchester Speedway in Winchester, Va.
