SITKA - Historic 201 Speedway has canceled its remaining schedule for the 2018 season. On Friday, promoter Steve Howard issued the following statement concerning the remainder of the 2018 season:
"It saddens me to announce that due to unforeseen circumstances surrounding my family and myself I will no longer be able to fulfill the duties of the promoter at 201 Speedway for the remainder of the 2018 season. This has been one of the hardest decisions I have ever had to make but due to recent events surrounding my personal and business affairs, it has forced me to hang up the promoter's hat. I want to say that being part of the racing family at 201 has been a wonderful experience for Stan and myself. We have made lifelong friends through this endeavor and will be forever grateful to those of you who supported us and the track during this time. I really don’t want to get into the reasons behind our decision but we would appreciate your prayers for our family. As of today, the remaining schedule of events is canceled for the 2018 season. We will honor our points system and awards will be handed out to the top three points leaders in each division, an announcement on that will be forthcoming. Once again, we apologize to anyone this has affected."
