SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - When August monsoon storms forced the cancellation of the annual Speed Week event in Utah, speed enthusiasts hoped to make it up at another race starting Saturday.

But The Salt Lake Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1mpPy3g) rain has once again left standing water on Utah’s famous salt flats, forcing officials to cancel that event too.

The Southern California Timing Association, which sponsors both races, says the track won’t be dry enough for the World Finals race.

The association had originally hoped to extend the World Finals race to make up for the lost Speed Week, the main racing event at the flats.

The annual Speed Week trials attract competitors from around the globe who try to break records in cars and motorcycles.
