After discussing the track conditions at Heartland Park Topeka with Todd Staley from USMTS, it was decided by both of us that the March 14th USMTS Event and the practice day scheduled for March 15th should be cancelled. Heartland Park Topeka will be working with USMTS to look for an alternative date to reschedule their event if possible. We regret the necessity of this decision but due to the last several weeks of inclement weather the Staff at Heartland Park Topeka has been unable to even get on the track let alone to do the necessary work to get the track ready prior to this weekend. We strive to make each event an enjoyable one for both competitors and our fans and we do not believe we are able to bring the racers and fans an adequate racing surface for an event of this kind after such a miserable spring cold snap and recent snows. We apologize to everyone for any inconvenience and look forward to seeing all of you soon! Believe us, we are as anxious for racing to start as you all are!

I can't believe they actually believe people are going to buy this excuse.....especially when they haven't said a thing about It since usmts put out their schedule 2 months ago and hpt never had it on theirs. Oh well its their loss....

Don't attend HPT often but had planned on this one. It's got to be difficult after the winter we've had, a week ago it was below zero temps. Disappointed yes but my two cents would rather have them make an objective call this early instead of having a surface that couldn't be raced on adequately. Tracks in the area have only started getting equipment on track in the last day or so if at all. Tough job being a promoter and a tough audience to keep everyone happy.

I think everyone really thought this race would never happen. No promotion, not on the schedule. Next time just let a dirt track handle the usmts races and don't promise things you never intend on going threw with.if it doesn't involve the drag strip HPT doesn't care. Dirt track will always be a side show for them. HPT doesn't care about it in my opinion.
