Since last Thursday, when Amercian Canadian Tour (ACT) and LEE USA (Lee, NH) Officials announced the postponement of the season opener, scheduled for April 11 and 12, last Thursday, several comments have been heard.
"There is still 15 days before the race. Its going to melt" was heard. "With 42-44F degree days, it will not take long."
Not one to rely on rumours, I contacted Bill Callen, Lee's Track Manager, to understand the decision.
"The site is covered in a couple of feet of snow and in some places, a foot of ice. I'm not even talking about the parking areas which will need to get lots of heat and sunlight to dry out. We will need a couple of weeks before we can even start the work" he told us.
Pictures taken by Callen, on March 27, corroborate what he said.
Will Oxford Plains Speedway (OPS in Oxford, ME) be able to present the ACT / PASS (Pro All Star Series) double header the week after, scheduled for April 18/19?
The images of OPS where taken by Bobby Therrien (5VT ACT driver) on Saturday, March 28th.
