Rain Washes Out Buxton Races
The track conducted its second Hall of Fame inductions in a pre-race ceremony but only one race was complete when rain began falling.
The infield crew used several tow trucks and maintenance vehicles in an attempt to try to save the racing surface but to no avail as rain was still falling at 8 p.m. when track officials made the cancellation call.
It was the first complete rain out since August 2013.
Racing will resume this Saturday, May 16 with half-price admission and racing in all five classes, beginning at 7 p.m.
