AKRON – Akron Speedway has announced a postponement for the 2016 Brady Houck Memorial Race originally scheduled for Saturday night.
Per track coordinator Sue Barton, the track took on a lot of water from rain in the early part of the week, and with the forecast predicting the possibility of more rain between tonight and Sunday, Barton decided to move the event to Saturday, Sept. 10.
On the 10th, Akron will host a series of different class races, including Flathead, Lo206 and 360# with all three races featuring trophies for top three finishes.
All other races feature trophies for the top two excluding kid karts.
The night will also include a four-man team race, with ladies and gentlemen comprising the teams for a 20-lap showcase.
Pit passes for the day are $15, under 5 are $5. Admission is $5, under 5 is free. Races are 100 percent payout.
Houck, who died in a 2007 car accident coming home from his senior prom, raced at Akron among several places around the area. Houck started racing in 1997, and with his father, George, made it a family event.
Events will begin with a “Salute To Brady” lap. Trophies for the Lo206 race will be donated by Boggs Automotive in Warsaw where Brady worked.
