Pete Abell Memorial at Ponderosa Speedway Postponed to Friday September 2
SOMERSET, KENTUCKY (August 4, 2022)- The 24th Annual Pete Abell Memorial that was scheduled for Friday August 5 at Ponderosa Speedway in Junction City, KY has been postponed to Friday September 2.
With the unfavorable weather forecast of rain showers predicted throughout the day on Friday August 5, track officials at Ponderosa Speedway and officials with the Valvoline Iron-Man Late Model Series and Brucebilt Performance Parts Iron-Man Open Wheel Modified Southern Series felt it was in the best interest of the race teams and race fans to postpone the event with the hope of a more favorable weather outlook at a future time.
