ASA Late Model Series officials notified Salem Speedway management on Thursday morning that the ASA Late Model Series Summer Shootout, scheduled for Saturday, July 10th, has been cancelled due to what was expected to be a low late model car count.

The ASA Late Model Series was the promoter of the planned Summer Shootout through a track lease agreement with Salem Speedway.

The USARacing Pro Cup Series was originally scheduled to promote the event before pulling out of their lease agreement with the track earlier this year.  The ASA Late Model Series then stepped in as promoter of the race before cancelling the weekend event on Thursday.

We’re certainly disappointed with the cancellation of the planned Summer Shootout,” said Salem Speedway general manager Richard Deaton.  “Unfortunately this is a sign of the times as many traveling race teams continue to struggle with expenses.”

The Lucas Oil Super Stock and Dave & Deb’s Winner’s Circle Street Stock races originally scheduled for Saturday will be rescheduled for later in the season.

Racing returns to the high banks of Salem Speedway on Saturday night, July 31st, as nationally known stunt man “Tricky” Travelstead headlines the Night of Thrills, presented by Paoli Pizzaria.

The Lucas Oil Super Stocks, Dave & Deb’s Winner’s Circle Street Stocks, Salem Speedway Pure Stocks and Front Wheel Drive Stocks will provide the racing action and Travelstead will thrill the fans with an array of death defying car crashes and explosions.
