2014 Night of Fire
Due to heavy rains on Saturday, July 12, Cedar Falls Raceway was forced to cancel the Arnold Motor Supply Night of Fire. “It was very disheartening to see all the work that was put in by the employees be shut down by rain”, said track operator Justin Kruse. The Tickets that were purchased for the event will serve as rain checks and be held at full face value for any event up to and including the 2015 Night of Fire.
Justin continued with “There was a lot of time and effort put into this event and our crew worked hard to try and make it happen, Mother Nature had different plans.” When asked why the track couldn’t have been dried off and continue he responded, “With it being that late in the afternoon and the falling temperatures, it would have taken several hours to dry and would have lost a great portion of traction and heat that should have been there to allow the Nitro cars to put on a good show.”
“Originally, the plan was to run the show on Sunday, but over half of the feature cars had other obligations at other tracks the following day, I did not want to short the fans on the talent that they were supposed to see.” Said Kruse.
There are a couple more big events left in the season including the Mopar Max event and Terry Stumpf Memorial Race the fans can use their available rain checks at. Kruse also stated, “We are staring to work on 2015 Night of Fire and plan to bring the biggest and baddest show to Cedar falls Raceway than has ever been here before!”
