The Motors In Motion committee has been forced to call off the Wondai Sprints meeting that was to be held in the Wondai Industrial Estate from June 19-21.
Organisers had received approval from the Confederation Of Motor Sport (CAMS) who had also checked the track layout.
South Burnett Regional Council offered to resurface the proposed track and did so late last year.
Unfortunately, the re-seal was not suitable for sprint car racing.
It is believed a re-seal to a higher standard would cost $70,000 to $80,000, money the committee simply does not have.
The Constitution of the not-for-profit group also forbids it from going into debt so the committee has reluctantly decided to cancel the event.
Organisers say up to 150 drivers and crews had expressed interest in coming.
