Forecast forces one-week Icebreaker 150 postponement


With a rapidly deteriorating forecast and increasingly frigid temperatures, Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park officials have postponed the 43rd running of the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour Icebreaker 150 to Friday, April 7 to Sunday, April 9.

The schedule for the weekend will remain the same, only backed up by one week.

“We have a duty to those who travel far distances to come here,” said Josh Vanada, Thompson General Manager in a video released by the track on Thursday. “That applies to fans, competitors and crew and we don’t take that lightly. So we decided that the most responsible thing to do was postpone the 43rd running of the Icebreaker.”

Camper drop off will be closed until Thursday, April 6, at 5pm. Camping units that are already on the property may remain onsite through the week, however, no one will be permitted to stay in them until the night of the 6th.

Anyone who missed the deadline to purchase an advanced camping spot will have another opportunity, as online camping reservations will reopen on

Included in the weekend schedule is feature races for the PASS Super Late Models, NEMA Lites, Thompson Street Stock Open, Lite Modifieds, Mr. Rooter ProTruck Series, and Vintage Outlaws.
