- Mother Nature's impact on the spring sports schedule is not a secret.
It's now even effecting some summer sports activities.
Eagle River Speedway was suppose to begin the season today.
However, the opener has now been pushed back a week. Last weekend's cold temps kept the track in poor racing condition.
The new opener will now be next Tuesday, May 21st.
Whenever the season finally begins, fans and drivers will have more than one night to choose from at the track.
"We're not just racing on Tuesdays," says track manager Ryan Glembin. "We're also running on Sundays and one Thursday. We decided to branch out to attract more drivers. Also to give fans and drivers more opportunities to come to the track, than on a normal Tuesday night."
On Saturday, TNT Speedway in Three Lakes will have their season opener. Hot Laps begin at 6:30pm. Racing begins at 7:15pm.
