Posted May 12, 2013, at 7:11 p.m.

HERMON, Maine —- Racing scheduled for Saturday night at Speedway 95 was postponed due to inclement weather.

Racing action at the one-third mile asphalt oval will continue next Saturday with the Dysart’s Late Models scheduled to compete in a regular 40-lap feature event.

The Darling’s Ford Sportsman will race a 25-lap feature, while the Strictly Streets and Sport-Fours will each have extended length features in their series events.

The Strictly Streets will race 35 laps in the Pepsi Beverage Co. series race No. 1, and the Sport-Fours will race 35 laps in the Coca-Cola series No. 1 event. Also on the schedule are the Speedway 95 Bombers for a 20-lap feature and the Wicked Good Vintage Racing Association will compete in their feature events.

All divisions will also have qualifying races starting at 5 p.m.

Wiscasset Speedway Rained Out

An overcast rainy day at the Speedway Saturday caused the races to be postponed. Racers were on hand and the track had been dried, but another round of rainfall began.

“We wanted to give the guys who came here an opportunity to race, and we thought we had a small window to get the show in, but we were rained out,” said Ken Minott, track promoter.

The Strictly Streets and Late Model Sportsman classes are rescheduled to next Saturday.

They will join the group one lineup of racing divisions: Prostock, Super Stock, New England 4-Cylinder Prostock, and Thunder 4’s.

The featured race of the week will be a North East Mini Stock Tour 50-lap event, the only appearance the NE Mini Stock Tour will make in Maine this season.

Racing begins at 5:30 p.m.
