Wet Saturday Leads to Busy Sunday
Saturday’s portion of Winchester 400 weekend was rained out, pushing all four of Saturday’s races to Sunday morning at 10:00am. Qualifying for the ASA STARS National Tour was canceled and times were based off of second practice results, which gave Ty Majeski his second Go Fas Racing Pole Award of the season. The CRA Late Model Sportsman and Street Stocks, Midwest Modifieds Tour, and Crown Vics all put on a show to open up Winchester 400 race day.
