BELLEVILLE, Ill. – With the threat of impending weather on Thursday and Saturday, and with the amount of travel necessary for fans, teams, and officials, the season-ending POWRi Sooner Fall Nationals at Creek County Speedway have been cancelled.

With teams planning to travel to Creek County Speedway from all across the United States to partake in the inaugural Sooner Fall Nationals and the gloomy forecast of rain threatening to bookend the weekend, the decision has been made to save teams the expense of traveling to what appears to be an imminent rain out.

“It has been a long, successful season,” said POWRi owner Kenny Brown. “Nobody hates ending the season on a rainout more than me, but I would rather be realistic with all the teams that are traveling to Oklahoma with the hopes of racing. The way the forecast looks and in light of the past weekends of overtly rough race tracks, I’d rather end the season this way than with everyone at the track watching it rain.”

With the cancellation of the Sooner Fall Nationals, the 2019 season has concluded for the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League, POWRi Lucas Oil West Midget League, and the POWRi Engler Machine & Tool 600cc Outlaw Micro League.

As such, Jesse Colwell (POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League), Andrew Felker (POWRi Lucas Oil West Midget League) and Gunner Ramey (POWRi Engler Machine & Tool 600cc Outlaw Micro League) will be crowned champions in their respective divisions.
