The JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour gave it one last try at Ohio’s Columbus Motor Speedway, but Mother Nature refused to cooperate once again. The Memorial 100 was postponed to Saturday from its original Memorial Day weekend date because of rain, and then on Saturday the rains came once again but this time led to it being cancelled.
Qualifying was already completed back in May, so all that was scheduled this weekend was a one-hour practice session and the 100-lap race.
The track was eventually dried and local divisions began their practice and qualifying sessions.
However, the rain came back a little after 6 p.m. ET, and this time the storm was much stronger. It last just 10 minutes, but it completely soaked the 1/3-mile oval and left lakes in the pit area.
Shortly after the rain ended, the decision was made to cancel the night’s racing card.
The JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour Memorial 100 will not be rescheduled. The series will not return to Columbus as the race track is closing at the end of the season.
