The wet won out over the wild Saturday night at Saratoga Speedway.
Rain washed away the first appearance of the Old Time Modified Stock Cars, and due to a wet track the Bomber cars, I.M.C.A. Modifieds and motorcycles were also cancelled.
The Old Timers’ next appearance will be on Aug. 11, accompanied by the I.M.C.A Modifieds, motorcycles and Bombers, who will be running an Island Invitational that night.
