Lowes Foods World of Outlaws World Finals Postponed; Friday's Portion Of Event To Be Held Saturday
CONCORD, NC - Nov. 5, 2010 - Friday night's portion of the Lowes Foods World of Outlaws World Finals presented by Bimbo Bakeries and Tom's Snacks scheduled for The Dirt Track at Charlotte has been postponed until Saturday due to inclement weather.
"We have been monitoring the weather forecast and all indications are calling for rain throughout the evening hours," said Christian Byrd, general manager of The Dirt Track at Charlotte. "With a weather forecast of this nature we feel the track surface would not be fit to race on until tomorrow morning. This decision has been made in the best interests of our fans and competitors. We appreciate our fans' patience and look forward to a full day of racing tomorrow."
The Dirt Track at Charlotte and World Racing Group officials will make every effort to make sure all scheduled racing events are fully completed so the fans will have the best possible racing experience this weekend.
The pit gate will open on Saturday at 9:30 a.m. and spectator gates will open at 10 a.m. Racing is scheduled to begin at 11 a.m.
Tickets purchased for Friday night's action will be honored Saturday morning. Upon the completion of Friday's scheduled portion of the event, there will be a break in racing action and the grandstand and pit area will be cleared to make room for those fans that have purchased Saturday-night tickets.
The only on-track action completed on Friday night between the periodic periods of rain was the C-Main and first B-Main for the Super DIRTcar Series big-block Modifieds. The heaviest burst of rain struck midway through the first B-Main, forcing officials to postpone the remainder of the program.
Action will pick up on Saturday morning with the second big-block Modified B-Main, followed by the complete programs for the World of Outlaws Sprint Cars and Late Models.
Saturday's A-Mains will be run over the 50-lap distance for the Late Models, 40 laps for the big-block Modifieds and 30 laps for the Sprint Cars.
Fans with further questions should contact the Charlotte Motor Speedway ticket office at 1-800-455-FANS (3267).
Tickets for Saturday night's racing program are sold out, but standing-room-only tickets are still available for the nightcap and can be purchased for just $25. Tickets are still available for the postponed program that will kick off the busy Saturday at the four-tenths-mile oval.
Saturday night's racing program will be televised live in a four-hour special on the SPEED cable network starting at 8 p.m. ET.
