The first race at Calvert City’s Kentucky Lake Motor Speedway in at least three years won’t happen due to poor track conditions after prolonged bad weather.

The National Dirt Racing League’s Bluegrass Nationals race was originally scheduled for March 27-29.

Two Hopkinsville businessmen will reopen the Kentucky Lake Motor Speedway. Jim Hale, owner of Randolph-Hale Electronics, and Ronnie Jones, 0wner of Jones Bros. Towing & Trucking, purchased the speedway and adjoining 317 acres for $990,000 at an auction yesterday. 

Jones said he was impressed by the local support they received after purchasing the venue.
