Weekend Notebook – June 14th – 16th, 2013
Rain last weekend in the region made most tracks damp, with the exception of Scotia Speedworld, who got their racing in on Friday evening. Two of those tracks will attempt to run last Saturday’s cards this Saturday, while two tracks will attempt to see action for the first time this weekend.
It’s a busy Saturday once again, with four major area tracks in action. Where to go this weekend? Help make your choice easier with our Weekend Notebook.
