April showers have produced yet another rainout at Lancaster Super Speedway.

LSS, for the second straight week, fell victim to the wet weather and the racing action was postponed.

The weather forecast for Saturday, May 2 is looking grand as Lancaster Super Speedway will be hosting the SECA Bonus race.

The SECA Crate Late Models will be paying $2,000 to win and $200 to start Saturday night.

LSS officials expect a large field of drivers and some heavy hitters.

Lancaster Super Speedway sports some of the top drivers already racing here weekly, with the likes of Brandy Baker, Timbo Mangum, Benji Knight, Chris Fite, Hank Taylor, Travis Steele, Andrew Baker and Manley Chaney set to defend the home turf against drivers such as Ron Parker, Steve Banal, John Ruggiero, Thomas Robinson and Gib Gibbons.

Many more ace dirt campaigners are expected to be here for the $2,000 to win SECA bonus race.

The LSS card also will have five other exciting divisions racing, with the Faith Funderburke Realty Super Stock, Deal 1 Auto Sales SECA Crate Sportsman, Cauthen Motors Renegades, U.S. Bonding Vintage and M&M Garage Extreme 4.
