Persistent rain showers throughout the day Saturday forced postponement of the Burnham Boilers/Dodge Dealers NASCAR 200 Busch North Grand National stock car race scheduled for the Lime Rock Park sports car course in northwestern Connecticut. The 82 lap, 200km/125 mile race has been re-scheduled for Saturday October 21 at 1 p.m.; there will be a short warmup session in the morning following NASCAR tech. inspection. Lou Rettenmeier of Oxford CT, a three time SCCA National Champion, will start on the pole position in his Busch North debut. Rettenmeier time-trialed second fastest and was elevated to the number one slot when Kim Baker was disqualified for a technical infraction involving an unapproved differentail assembly. Defending NASCAR race winner at Lime Rock Butch Leitzinger will start in 36th and last starting position after missing time trials with a blown engine and finally earning a starting berth by finishing second in the 15 lap qualifying race held Saturday morning. Due to previous broadcast committments the re-scheduled race will NOT be seen on TNN as originally planned. However if you are in the northeast states tickets are still available for the October 21 race date. For more information contact Lime Rock Park at 1 800RACELRP. Greg Rickes
