Tire Shortage Cancels Lucas Oil ASCS At Black Hills Speedway

RAPID CITY, S.D. — Due to the continuing tire shortage, Black Hills Speedway and the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series have cancelled the National Tour event slated for May 13-14 at the South Dakota oval.
The weekend will still feature local sprint cars with the Northern Plains Region on Friday, May 13 at $1,200-to-win, plus $200 tow money to travelers who decide to race.
“When we were told Hoosier couldn’t get tires to Black Hills, we started trying to find some to take with us to at least have something, but there just isn’t any,” said ASCS Owner Terry Mattox. “Without the ability to fulfill a full order, the distributors can’t part with that much inventory at one time with what’s going on.
“The track still wants to run something, so they are going to have the Northern Plains Region back on Friday,” Mattox continued. “The local series carries a smaller car count, so they can get by, but expecting 25-30 cars for a National Tour show, it becomes impossible. Understand, we are not hating on Hoosier. Before everything that’s gone on, we never had an issue. Like all of us, they are in a situation that is beyond their control because of the fallout of what’s happened, and it’s not just Hoosier that is going through it.”
