SPRINGFIELD's "TONY BETTENHAUSEN 100" POSTPONED
Springfield, IL........Saturday's "Tony Bettenhausen 100" USAC Silver Crown Championship race at the Illinois State Fairgrounds has been postponed due to extremely wet grounds and race track. Heavy rains overnight created conditions not conducive to racing at the one-mile dirt oval. Officials of Track Enterprises and USAC are working to secure a replacement date for the event later in the year. An announcement will be made regarding a new date when firm. The next USAC Silver Crown race is the "Ted Horn 100" September 5 at the DuQuoin (Ill.) State Fairgrounds.
