Napoleon Harley Davidson Wauseon National M-C Race results

July 17, 2015     Fulton County Fairgrounds         Wauseon, Ohio

The ½ mile limestone cushion track was in shape to start racing on Friday despite being saturated for weeks, coupled with Thursday night's showers that stopped sometime around 9:00 am Friday morning. Hot laps started on time followed by 28 heat races.  On race 30 of the semi finals, a storm blew in with a wall of rain. When the storm passed, an additional thirty minutes were given to monitor the standing water on the race surface. Officials called the race because of unacceptable track conditions due to inclement weather, and were unable to run the ten final races. The meet was 75% finished, and the program was deemed complete, with full purse and awards paid to the riders based on their finishes.

* Should a meet be stopped with over 50% (60% in Short Track) of the entire program completed by the leader, the program may be considered complete and the entire guaranteed purse will be paid.
