The highly-anticipated return of the Southern Super Series to Mobile International Speedway will have to wait one more year. Southern Super Series officials announced Saturday at Montgomery Motor Speedway that the event scheduled for June 26 at the Mobile, AL oval has been canceled.
According to a post on the series’ Facebook page on Wednesday night, the decision was made jointly between track promoter Gina Knowles and Southern Super Series management. The series has not competed at the track since October 2018.
The statement released by SSS officials attributed a few factors for the cancelation, with the current tire shortage being the most important factor.
“This was a tough decision, given the anticipation of a return to Mobile,” stated SSS Series Director Tim Bryant. ” Simply put, the timing was just not right. Tire shortages being the main issue, we just didn’t think we could deliver the type of event the MIS fans deserve. We look forward to a return in the future.”
With the race at Mobile being canceled, the Southern Super Series will next be in action July 23-24 for a Blizzard Series doubleheader weekend. Both races will be streamed live on Speed51.TV for those unable to attend.
