HARTSVILLE, S.C.— Due to excessive rain fall this week and an unfavorable forecast for the weekend, officials with the International Hot Rod Association (IHRA) and Darlington Dragway have cancelled this weekend’s IHRA Sportsman Spectacular presented by Hagerty and Moser Engineering.
“After many conversations this week between myself and Darlington’s General Manager Rhett Gardner we have decided to cancel this weekend’s event,” said IHRA Division Director Josh Peake. “The Hartsville area has had lots of rain this week and forecasting for more throughout the later part of the week as well. We wanted to make this decision now in order to afford racers enough time to make alternate racing plans for this weekend.”
The next IHRA Sportsman Spectacular presented by Hagerty and Moser Engineering will be August 21-23 at Maryland International Raceway.
