Wintry weather cancels Spring Nationals at Attica

ATTICA — Though it’s called the Core & Main Spring Nationals at Attica Raceway Park, Mother Nature surely isn’t paying attention.

The forecast for Attica Friday — opening night of the 29th annual spring nationals — is calling for windy and cold conditions with snow flurries. The forecast for Saturday’s racing at “Ohio’s Finest Racing” venue shows a high of 38 degrees with a low of 23. 

That has led to the cancellation of racing at Attica Raceway Park for the weekend.

The season-opening night for the All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads FAST 410 Championship Series scheduled for Friday will not be rescheduled. However, the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions race planned for Saturday is to be rescheduled for April 20.
