US 131 Motorsports Park Super Chevy Show / Night of Thunder
Postponed by Rain Threat
The Super Chevy Show & Night of Thunder event, which was to
have been contested this weekend at US 131 Motorsports Park on May
30-31, has been postponed - not by rain or severe weather, but by
the threat thereof. And therein lies the source of track
manager Jason Peterson's frustration. "People are more than
ever making plans based on weather forecasts. It is
unfortunate that our business is so reliant on not only the "real"
weather, but also the forecasted weather. With such a nice
show planned and so many people traveling a good distance to attend
this weekend, we feel that it is in the best interest for all to
reschedule this event for later in the year."

Annual Mopars at Martin had gorgeous show cars, great drag racing
and there were some unique parts to be bought from the swap meet
sellers who came out. The day was met with beautiful weather
and a great day to be at The Fastest Track in Michigan!

winning the Street class. Thurston defeated Kyle Wanamaker of
Martin. Top/Mod combo class winner Jeff Weets from Morrison,
