World Championship Punkin Chunkin officials today announced that the event, planned for Oct. 24-26, 2014 at Dover International Speedway, has been postponed and will be held on Nov. 6-8, 2015.
“Moving an event the size of Punkin Chunkin is not easy even when time is not a factor,” said John Huber, World Championship Punkin Chunkin president. “Both the World Championship Punkin Chunkin Association and Dover International Speedway were cautiously optimistic that the event would happen as scheduled. Ultimately, the collective decision was made to postpone the event .
“Both organizations are committed to hosting the event on Dover International Speedway grounds in 2015, and with one year of lead time, we are confident we can pull off a first-class event for fans, sponsors and competitors.”
Customers who purchased $10 tickets to attend the event will see the refund on their credit cards within 7-14 business days. Any questions concerning refunds can be directed to 800-441-7223.
While disappointed, both Punkin Chunkin and Dover International Speedway officials feel the decision to postpone the event until 2015, when more time allows for the opportunity to produce a better event for competitors and guests, will ultimately be seen as a key to a long-term, successful event.
