USAC Twitter says a combination of wet grounds and safety issues are the reason. Interesting to find out what the safety concerns are.

I'm not bashing usac or anybody. My biggest question is wasnt usac officials there yesterday or even this morning? Why wait so late to cancel it with safety concerns? They posted this afternoon that they was racing then boom!

Some of the historians will need to help me, but during the 2008 Indiana Midget week an event was cancelled for safety concerns once the drivers/fans arrived at the track. It has a similar feel to this event. I remember that it was a big topic on this forum (and the reason that I found this forum)

It brought up the concept of how much pre-work does USAC do before they will sanction a race. Does an official have to inspect the track before being placed on the schedule for the first time? If they are inspected before the race is scheduled, how can they then be cancelled on the day of the show. As there was last time, there are a lot of rumors about which drivers complained and which drivers said they wouldn't race. It seems that if the track is vetted properly that this would never happen.
