Budds Creek, Md. -- Although Southern Maryland received some much needed rain, race fans were disappointed as the rain canceled the racing at Potomac Speedway on Saturday night..

The regular show was scheduled to be on hand with a 25-lap feature event for the Chesapeake Web Design Bombers. Also, as a special treat, the Little Lincoln cars were on the schedule. The 25-lap Bomber feature will be made up at another time, and The Little Lincoln Cars are tentatively scheduled to run October 6th, the final day of the Southern Maryland Nationals and the last race of the 2001 season.

This coming Saturday night, will be Budweiser and M.A.R.F. (Metropolitan Auto Racing Fans) night at the track. The regular show will be on hand along with the Vintage Cars. Pit gates open at 5:30 p.m., with racing starting at 7:00 p.m.

On the schedule for Saturday August 25th is the regular show along with the Classic Cars. It will be double points on the line for all divisions. The double points night could be the deciding factor in the points battles as there will only be two points races left following it in the 2001 racing season.

Deane Guy currently enjoys a 214-point lead over Rick Jones in the Budweiser Super Late Model series. Just 48 points separate Sommey Lacey and Paul Cursey in the Bell Motor Company Late Models.

Coming up on Sunday, September 2nd will be the last Budweiser I.T.S.I . Super Late Model event, the $2,000 to win 44-lap Ronnie McBee Memorial . This feature event will be the deciding factor as to who the I.T.S.I . points champion will be .

Allen Brannon seems to be on his way to picking up the I.T.S.I. points championship title. Brannon, with one feature win, currently has a 125-point advantage over one-time feature winner Jim Bernheisel. But, anything can still happen with one feature left.
