Travel trailers get a break from being broken this weekend.
The second Travel Trailer Day of Destruction scheduled for Sunday at Spallumcheen’s Motoplex Speedway and Event Park has been cancelled.
“It’s a management decision,” said track contact Bob Newcombe, adding the move to cancel the second such event of the season was made “about a month ago.”
The first event was held in early June and drew a capacity crowd to the speedway. It was supposed to run in May but rain wiped out the event.
“It’s not something (cancellation) we want to do but the events are just too close together after we had to re-schedule the first event,” said Newcombe.
“The travel trailers are definitely a popular event but we don’t want to hold them too close together so that people get tired of them.”
There is still one more event on the Motoplex 2015 schedule.
The Wescar Late Model Touring Series, which began its 2015 season in Spallumcheen, and also features stops in Agassiz, Quesnel, Prince George and Williams Lake, will hold its series finale at the motoplex on Saturday, Sept. 12.
Gates will open at 5 p.m., qualifying starts at 6 p.m. and racing will start at 7 p.m.
“This will be one of the biggest car events in the series,” said Newcombe.
The track remains open for business, said Newcombe. Scheduling for 2016 is set to begin in November or December.
“I do have some irons in the fire for non-racing events next year,” said Newcombe.
