HALSEY–The 2017 Sandhills Open Road Challenge (SORC) officially began this morning in Halsey with the Loup 2 Loup race which started promptly at 8:30 am. The buzz and excitement that comes with every SORC race was present again, with plenty of spectators there to view the action.
Unfortunately, racing was halted prior to the 110 mph class due to an end-over-end wreck. Car number 357, a 2008 Corvette from South Dakota was the vehicle involved. Both driver and navigator walked away from the wreck virtually unscathed. Following the wreck, rain moved into the area causing more delays. Crews were called in to wait for the rain to pass and for the road to dry.
They hope to be back to racing action this afternoon. We will have results of the racing that is completed at the Loup 2 Loup in a later report.
