ARCA Re/Max Canceled Race at Cayuga

David PhillipsAnalyst IMay 28, 2009

ARCA racing officials announced Tuesday that the June 28 race that was to be held at Cayuga has been cancelled and will not be rescheduled.

A little info about this almost un-known track. Cayuga is located in Hagersville, Ontario, Canada. It is a .625-mile track with 12 degrees of banking in the turns and five on the straightaways.

There has been only one ARCA Re/Max race at the track, which was held in 2008. Justin Lofton won the pole and Justin Allgaier won the race.

No real reason was given for the decision, but ARCA President Ron Drager said: "We looked forward to building on the 2008 RE/MAX Series event we established at Cayuga, but we've determined that pressing on for 2009 is not in the best interests of the series. We wish Jerry Santucci and Cayuga well going forward." 

Santucci responded with: "We at Cayuga Motor Speedway accept responsibility for this unfortunate circumstance. ARCA is a first class racing organization and we regret the inconvenience this causes the series, its teams, sponsors, and fans.

"We worked diligently, but as deadlines approached it became increasingly apparent we would not be able to promote and conduct the event successfully due to issues within our ownership group."

Still not sure exactly what that means but that means one less ARCA race this season .
