St. Croix Valley Raceway fell victim to Mother Nature for an unprecedented fourth consecutive week, further delaying the track’s season opener. With threatening weather hovering, track officials prepared the facility for the belated season opener throughout the day until a cloud burst at 4:30 p.m. washed away all hopes racing for the evening.
Attention now turns to May 24 and the second annual Davey Tabor Memorial, The Valley’s tribute to a dear friend and sprint enthusiast. Defending champion Brooke Tatnell will return to defend his title along with the rest of the UMSS winged sprint series racers. Also part of the Thunder in the Valley series will be SCVR regular classes, the Future Fours, Pure Stocks, WISSOTA Midwest Modifieds, and UMSS Traditional and Micro Sprints.
First green flag is set to fly at 7:05 p.m. For more information on this or other scheduled events this summer at SCVR, visit the track’s website, SCVraceway.com.
