ASA SAT Cancels the “Melon 100” at Watermelon Capital Speedway

Series Will Return to Action on Saturday, September 12th at Lanier National Speedway

ATLANTA, GA (August 25, 2009) – Officials for the RC Cola / MoonPie ASA Southeast Asphalt Tour announced today that they have canceled the Melon 100 at Watermelon Capital Speedway, originally scheduled for this coming Saturday, August 29th. The event will not be made up.

Two area companies scheduled to sponsor the race notified ASA SAT officials that they were unable to sponsor the event as prior agreed upon, thereby forcing the cancelation.

“We have experienced great car counts and very competitive fields in 2009,” said John Kee, owner of the ASA Southeast Asphalt Tour. “We don’t want any of our teams to worry. The intent is to move forward with the balance of the season as scheduled, beginning with the James Garrison Memorial at Lanier National Speedway on Saturday, September 12.”

ASA SAT teams may request an immediate refund of registration fees or may have their fees moved to a future event by contacting the ASA SAT offices.
