RAIN CANCELLATIONS – NO REFUNDS

Drag Racing is a sport that relies on a dry racing surface for competition. To address precipitation on the drag strip, Milan Dragway will make every effort possible to dry the surface following a rain delay within reason.  Occasionally, Mother Nature prevents a race from completing.  If an event is cancelled due to inclement weather, the promoter of the race, i.e., Milan Dragway, NHRA, outside promoters, etc. will make the call regarding rain cancellations.  This information will be announced via the PA system, posted on our website and social media sites as soon as possible. We will not speculate or predict what will happen with pending inclement weather or if a race will be cancelled. We will do our best to attempt to run every race to completion when doable.

RAINOUT POLICY AND RAIN CHECKS – NO REFUNDS
