Highland Speedway raced against Mother Nature Saturday Night, Mother Nature took home the Checkered Flag!

HIGHLAND, IL (JUNE 18, 2013) Saturday started out as awesome weather quickly turned into a race against Mother Nature. It was an action packed night with 110 cars ready to race. The Highland Speedway drivers, teams, and crew did a great job of completing the Grapperhaus Night of Destruction Rollover Contest, UMP Sammie’s KidModz, and UMP Hamel Coop Street Features. Mother Nature took over during the UMP Steve Schmitt Modified Feature and forced her hand, causing the feature to end early due to the rain. We had to call the rainout and will run the Late Model, Micro, and SportMod Features on upcoming nights. We have had great car counts so far this year, Saturday night included, with 110 cars ready to race. All of us at Highland Speedway would like to send out a huge thank you to all the teams, drivers, and crews that supported Highland Speedway on Saturday nights! We could not make it happen without all of your hard work and dedication, thank you! Grapperhaus Night of Destruction Rollover Contest ran during intermission with Shaun Horstmann, Brett Eilerman, and Brett Heinz taking center stage. Shaun came out on top rolling his ride and then taking off and rolling it all over again. These crazy guys put on an awesome show. The Pick 3 will be announced after we complete the Micro feature on August 10th.
