Kalamazoo Speedway was set to finally get their season under way Friday night with the Intimidator 100 after local officials shut the event down last week. Track officials were forced to scrap the show planned for tonight once again, this time for persistent rain throughout the day in Southwest Michigan.
“We have made the call to cancel tonight’s show (July 10) due to impending weather,” Kalamazoo Speedway said in a statement. “We thank you all for your support! This was not a decision taken lightly. Enjoy yet another weekend with your family, and we can’t wait until we can be together again as a racing family!!”
The Intimidator 100 traditionally serves as the first major event for the region’s Outlaw Super Late Model competitors. Last year, Adam Terry scored his first career victory in the event on his way to the track championship, outdueling Tyler Roahrig in the closing laps.
