Lima Half-Mile, AMA Pro Flat Track Round 4, Canceled Due to Inclement Weather

LIMA, Ohio (June 30, 2013) - Round 4 of AMA Pro Flat Track presented by J&P Cycles at the Allen County Fairgrounds has been cancelled.  For the second time this weekend, weather has been at the forefront of problems and has resulted in the cancellation of the Lima Half-Mile.  Following another heavy overnight storm, the gravel track at the Allen County Fairgrounds was left in such condition that it was deemed unsafe to race on.
Persistent rains in the Allen County, Ohio area over the weekend has forced AMA Pro Flat Track officials and promoter Dean Gallup to cancel round 4 of the 2013 AMA Pro Flat Track presented by J&P Cycles Grand National Championship season at the Lima Half-Mile.  Gallup stated on Flat Track Live on Facebook that ticket holders can contact the track for a refund.  AMA Pro Flat Track heads to the Hagerstown Half-Mile on Saturday, July 6 hoping for much better weather then what has been seen now for the last two scheduled rounds of the season.  AMA Pro Flat Track photo by Dave Hoenig.
"The moisture on the track simply could not be safely prepared for racing," said Dan Johnsen, Director of AMA Pro Flat Track.  "We just caught some bad luck this weekend, it's very unfortunate but that's really all it comes down to."
