Blooming Prairie MN, Sept. 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Minimizer Bandit Big Rig Series would like to race at Anderson Motor Speedway Saturday, September 15th, but Hurricane Florence has other ideas.

The Category 4 storm, nearing Category 5 strength, is approaching the Carolinas and packing winds of up to 140 mph.  It is expected to make landfall Wednesday night into Thursday morning.

 

"We hate to cancel any event, but in this case, it's a no-brainer," Bandit General Manager Jason Johnson said.  "We want everyone to stay safe, and our thoughts and prayers are with those in the Carolinas and Virginia."

 

Florence has already forced the relocation of more than a million residents in Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina.

 

"It's hard to predict the weather, but when a hurricane is approaching, we aren't going to take any chances," Johnson said.

 

Fans can contact Johnson or Drew Hull for refunds, which will be processed within a few business days.

 

"We will also honor any Anderson tickets at our Myrtle Beach event on Sept. 29th," Johnson said.  "That's our season finale, so hopefully, many of our Anderson fans can make it to Myrtle Beach."

 

The Minimizer Fan Series Truck Show, initially set for Saturday, September 29th, as well, has also been canceled.
