Various Circumstances Lead Super Cup Stock Car Series to Cancel July Salem Speedway Appearance
Thursday, July 22, 2021
Statesville, North Carolina (July 22, 2021) – A number of contributing factors, not fully foreseen prior to the week of the event, has led to the Super Cup Stock Car Series choosing to cancel their part of the program for Saturday night’s festivities at Salem Speedway.
“There’s not one thing to point a finger at, but in the end, the car count did not support this race to happen,” series director Joe Schmaling stated. “There are people within our series family who have fallen under the weather and have communicated their uncertainty with us in recent days. When it comes to the cost for us, the cost for our teams, and the cost for the track, the numbers just didn’t add up for a limited car count show. We have to do what’s best for the most and we can’t force it to happen.”
While this Saturday’s races will not be held, the Super Cup Stock Car Series does have every intention to return to Salem Speedway on Saturday, September 11th for leg number one of the Kentuckiana Dual Weekend.
“The stars did not align for this race and I am optimistically disappointed, but we’ll do the best we can do with what we’ve got and we’ll go from there,” Schmaling added.
The series will press on with its next event on Friday, August 6th, the inaugural appearance at Motor Mile Speedway in Radford, Virginia.
