Turkey Bowl not pardoned at Lebanon Valley

It was a good idea when it was announced, the "Turkey Bowl at Lebanon Valley Speedway scheduled for Nov. 24, but Mother Nature doesn't want to cooperate and the bird, as they say, is cooked.

Today, Lebanon Valley announced that the late-year event would not be held due to the extensive rain and cold temperatures arriving in the Northeast.

"There would just not be enough time in the day to get the track dried out from all this rain we've had" Lyle Devore, track General Manager said in a press release. "The track surface conditions were key, but the extremely wet pit area would have a nightmare!"

The event would have been an ideal cap to the area racing scene with a scheduled 25-lap pro stock, 20-lap limited, 20-lap pure stock, 20-lap 4-cylinder and 50-lap endure set for a full afternoon of racing.

Fans are now free to stop by the Saratoga Auto Museum at 1 p.m. to catch the "Lost Speedways II" program.

Ken Gypson, Tom Remington, Vermont's bill Ladabouche, Gary London, Lew Boyd will provide memories of auto speedways that have not survived through the years, but provided great memories for fans for decades.

The Saratoga Automobile Museum is located at the Avenue of the Pines in the Saratoga Spa State Park.
