Rain postpones Ronnie McBee Memorial.
Rain showers once again forced promoter Pete Cameron to cancel racing action at Potomac Speedway for the second week in a row. The running of the Ronnie McBee Memorial was scheduled for Sunday, September 1st but has had to be rescheduled. A full field of Super Late Models was expected to run in honor of one of the most talented racers ever to run the Super Late Model circuit.
The Sliver Hill Lions Club will invade the speedway once again on September 7th and September 14th for the running of their fall Demolition Derbies. Get and old car and be a derby driver. This popular event always has a sellout crowd on hand. Come early to get a good seat each night. Gates open at 5 and the action starts at 7. Adult admission is $15 and children under 10 are $7. Three and under are free. For more information on the derbies, call the Lions Derby hotline at 301-297-4880.
Potomac will be back in action on Saturday, September 21st. This will be the final points race of the season for all divisions. The Ronnie McBee Memorial will be run at this time. This will also be the 7th and final points race of the popular ITSI Super Late Model Race Series. Super Late Models will not run for double points. All other divisions, Late Model, Street Stock, 4 Cylinder, Hobby Stock and Bombers will run for double points. You won't want to miss this final race, which will determine the points champions for each division.
The next weekend, September 28th, will find the annual 100 Lap Hobby/Bomber Championship taking place on the track. Rules are open to all tracks and all cars will have an unmodified 350 CMF Carburetor Max. Also, Spectator Drag races and a Roll Over Contest are on the agenda.
Potomac will wrap up the season the following weekend, October 4th & 5th, with the popular season finale, the Southern Maryland Nationals 2002. This exciting event pits Pure Street cars from all over the east coast running for a $1,500 to win first place prize. Limited Late Models will vie for $800 to win, while 4 Cylinders go after a $500 top prize. Classic Cars will also run each night, Bombers on Friday only and Vintage Cars on Saturday only.
