Sunday night August 25th was not supposed to be on the Proctor Speedway Schedule as they
rarely race the Sunday prior to Thursday’s Silver 1000 which, this year, is the 41st edition.
Officials in cooperation with United Midwest Sprint Series scheduled the UMSS rained out event
for that open date. Also racing Sunday for no track or national points were the Super Stocks,
Midwest Modified and Pure Stock division. Track championships had been wrapped up the
previous Sunday. Consequently, the three divisions were sparsely populated. UMSS brought two
divisions, their “Traditional” non winged sprints and the Winged Sprints. A total of 21 sprints
were in attendance on a sweltering late August afternoon where the thermometer flirted with the
90 degree mark.
