Drag races canceled due to poor road conditions

Posted:
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -

Sioux City won't have drag racing this year.

The popular event that debuted at "Rock 'n Rods" in 2011 has been canceled due to safety concerns.

RockN Rods, Inc. President, Kathy Miller, says the races can't take place because of the poor pavement on some downtown streets.

However, the group says "Cruise the Loop" and the "Show and Shine" car show will still take place on Saturday, July 20th.

Miller says she plans to bring the drag race back next year, after the streets have been repaved.
