Season Opener RallyCross Cancelled

Due to unseasonably warm and rainy weather conditions, we have been forced to cancel our Season Opener RallyCross at Crystal Motor Speedway.

Good afternoon everyone. Unfortunately, another abnormally warm January has rendered the field and bowl at Crystal unusable for this event. Last year when we ran this event in slightly cooler temperatures, we ended up damaging the field at Crystal badly enough that we were unable to use it for the rest of the year. To avoid that issue this year, speedway owner Ron Flinn requested that we only use his site if it was frozen. Obviously, that has not happened. Making matters worse was the copious amounts of rain we received over the last two days across the state. That combined with the warm weather has left every site available to us unusable. 

All registrations for this event will be refunded and we will have the registration page up for the February RallyCross at Crystal Motor Speedway up on Thursday with registration set to open the following Monday. Hopefully mother nature is more cooperative over the next month.
