“We hope that we can reschedule the event for later in the season.”

August 20, 2005, Clarence, NY - The Pro Modified Racing Association (PMRA), www.promodifiedracing.com event was rained out at Lancaster Motorsports Park presented by: G-Force Race Cars, Jan-Cen Racing Engines and Oddy's Racing Inc. The teams now move on to Skyview Drags for what was hoped to be the series first double-header.
“It’s really unfortunate when Mother Nature does this to you, but it is what it is and the teams next stop will be at the new Skyview Drags in Tioga Center, New York Saturday night,” explained Bruce F. Mehlenbacher, PMRA Director of Operations. “I really think we had a chance for a good one tonight. I saw fans at Lancaster tonight that I haven’t seen for years and they were very excited about the Pro Modified and Can-Am Stock Super Stock combo we had planned.”
“We had a great field of cars and it was raining all around us throughout the day and it was killing the event,” said Jim Reid, Promoter of Lancaster Motorsports Park. “We had the cars in the lanes and tried to run them twice before we got dumped on and we hope that we can reschedule the event for later in the season.”
There are 13 Pro Modified Teams pre-entered for the Skyview Drags PMRA event located on Highway 17C halfway between Elmira and Binghamton, NY, just north of the Pennsylvania border.
The Skyview Drags eighth-mile track was built only last year, and those who have raced on it are pleased with the surface of the IHRA-sanctioned strip.
Qualifying is scheduled to start at 4:00 p.m. Saturday, with eliminations at 8:30 p.m. for the quickest four teams. The Chicago-style shootout and finals are to take place at 10:00 p.m.
