Northern Lights Raceway cancels season finale

For the second-straight time, the Northern Lights Raceway executive was forced to cancel a race weekend.

As a result, current and outgoing president Robin DeRose has decided not to reschedule the race, and the Northern Lights Raceway season is over for the year. It wasn’t all bad news, as the season finale potluck still went ahead as planned and a good time was had by all racers.
