GRANBY, QC, CAN – August 11, 2017 – The night started great for the initial DIRTcar Sportsman tour North Region, but rain during the DIRTcar 358 Modified tour race washed away the track and forced officials to cancel the remainder of the night’s races.
DIRTcar officials are working with track officials at Autodrome Granby to find a date for the completion of the 50-lap event in the coming weeks.
The DIRTcar Sportsman tour North Region returns to action on September 3rd at Cornwall Motor Speedway in Cornwall, Ontario. For additional event information, visit www.cornwallspeedway. Race time is 6:30pm.
