Dixie Motor Speedway closed for remainder of season

Events at Dixie Motor Speedway have been cancelled for the rest of the season.

Owners of the Dixie Motor Speedway are speaking out for the first time after cancelling their races for the remainder of the summer.

The speedway released a statement earlier this week, on their Facebook page, saying they have cancelled their races following an incident earlier this month in the grandstands.

Owners are still not saying what the incident was or how it happened, but say they're focused on making sure their drivers and fans are well served for the rest of the year.

Track officials say the following two races will be run the Auto City Speedway in Clio:

Friday August 16, 2013- Dixie's 11th Annual "Big One" presented by Mid-Michigan Toyota Dealers

Saturday September 7, 2013- General RV Eve of Destruction and Pioneer Seed Modified 50 Lap Invitational

There is no word when Dixie Motor Speedway will reopen.
