Pontoon Beach, Illinois (April 5, 2023) – Already saturated grounds, coupled with over an inch of rain on Wednesday morning at the Tri-City Speedway has forced track and series officials to cancel this weekends Lucas Oil MLRA "Winter Meltdown".
Track promotors Kevin and Tammy Gundaker along with their staff have been hard at work preparing the racing surface for this weekends season opener at Tri-City. However, with the currently saturated condition of the racing surface and infield along with the facility grounds, they felt it best to make what was a clear decision early enough in the week so that fans and race teams could make alternative plans.
