What happens when it rains on race day?

  • Everything below applies to both grandstands and pits.

Rain Delay

  • A rain delay is when the race is officially delayed. Then the track will be attempted to be brought back to racing condition.
  • Grandstand tickets cannot be exchanged or refunded and rain checks will not be issued in the event of a rain delay.
  • Grandstand tickets cannot be exchanged or refunded and rain checks will not be issued in the event of a rain delay.
  • If the track can’t be returned to racing conditions, you wil be notified over the PA system that we have rained out for the evening.

If it is raining before the race:

  • If it is raining before the start of a race, the Big O Speedway crew has been hard at work protecting the track from the elements. This being the case, if the rain stops before the scheduled start time, there might be a rain delay and the scheduled events will continue as planned.

If it begins to rain during the race:

  • If it begins to rain during the race, the Big O Speedway crew will quickly work to return the track to safe racing conditions. At this time the Big O Speedway staff will work with the racers, along with local weather outlets, to ascertain the immediate weather outlook.
  • If the Big O Speedway feels that the inclement weather will pass, a rain delay is put into effect.
  • If the Big O Speedway feels that the inclement weather will not pass in a reasonable amount of time, an official rain out is announced.
  • If a rain out is declared after the heat races have been completed, the night will be considered complete and there will be no rain checks issued.
  • The Big O Speedway staff appreciates your cooperation.
