NLRA Rained Out At Greenbush Again
On Saturday night the NLRA was scheduled to make-up their June 14th event at the Greenbush Race Park in Greenbush, MN, but a line on showers showed up at the track at six o'clock and dumped too much rain, causing a second cancellation of late model racing in Greenbush this season. Saturdays' race was the third consecutive series event to fall to rain, and the fifth rain out overall. NLRA series officials and the Greenbush Race Park are working to find a date and try a third time to race in Greenbush.
