SPRING VALLEY, MINN -- Mother Nature has intervened once again, washing out the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series, NAPA North Star Nationals scheduled for Saturday at Deer Creek Speedway.
A forecast for heavy rain and severe thunderstorms throughout the region over the next 24 hours has forced track and series officials to cancel the event.
"This is really disappointing for us, our fans and our drivers," said Series Director Rick Schwallie. "The safety of everyone is our first priority. After closely monitoring the forecast and the high probability of severe storms, it's in the best interest for everyone involved. We look forward to returning to Deer Creek Speedway in 2020."
The tickets for the 2019 NAPA North Star Nationals at Deer Creek Speedway can be refunded by calling the track office at (507) 754-6107. No refunds will be issued after June 28, 2019.
