HUMBOLDT — Rainy weather arrived Thursday, just in time to wash out the first premiere race weekend of the year at Humboldt Speedway.

Organizers announced the King of America XIII races have been pushed back to  the weekend of April 4-6.

The King of America races bring the top Modified drivers in the country to Humboldt’s three-eighths-mile dirt track each spring over a three-night racing extravaganza.

But with showers persisting most of the day Thursday, and temps not expected above 50 before Saturday, it meant little chance for the track, or the outyling parking areas, to dry out before the flag drops.

The postponement means the schedule will be jam-packed in April at the speedway.

Following the King of America festivities, some of the top B-Modified drivers will be at Humboldt Speedway April 11-13 for the anuaal Battle at the Bullring.

The regular weekly racing series commences April 19, and runs each Friday night through Aug. 9.
