Rain fouls Fallen Heroes race

From staff reports

Port Royal – Miserable rains hit Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night right in the middle of the 25-lap Fallen Heroes Championship for 410 sprints, forcing postponement of the event and the balance of the features to be completed for super late models and 305 sprints.

The track will complete Saturday’s show and another that was rained out earlier in the month on June 14, and will offer free general admission to the features-only event.

Seven mains will be raced that night, including the final 16 laps of the May 24 Fallen Heroes race for 410 sprints along with the entire super late model and sprint features from Saturday, both 25 laps.

Also on the card will be rained out 410 sprint, super late model and 305 sprints mains held over from May 3. An Xtreme stock feature also will be run.

Mike Erdley was leading the way in the Fallen Heroes Championship when a red flag unfurled with nine laps down for a vicious flip in the third turn by New York’s Justin Barger. Dylan Cisney also piled into the wreckage.

Erdley was leading the sprint main over Rick Lafferty, Dave Ely, Lucas Wolfe and Blane Heimbach before the stoppage.

While under the red flag conditions the rain began falling, forcing postponement of the balance of the night’s action.
