Rain washes out WoO's weekend events at I-55, La Salle

World of Outlaws Late Model Series

La SALLE, Ill. (Sept. 20) — Showers overtook central Illinois early Sunday afternoon, forcing the cancellation of the evening's World of Outlaws Late Model Series Best Western Illinois Fall Nationals at La Salle Speedway.

The wet weather caused a complete washout of the weekend's World of Outlaws doubleheader in the Midwest. Rain also wiped out Saturday night's Pepsi Nationals at I-55 Raceway in Pevely, Mo.

In addition, it marked the second straight year that the Illinois Fall Nationals has been rained out at the quarter-mile La Salle oval.

WoO officials will discuss the possibility of rescheduling the events with I-55 co-promoters Ken Schrader and Ray Marler and Bob Sargent of Track Enterprises, who promoted the Illinois Fall Nationals.

Sunday's rainout marked the 12th weather-related cancellation or postponement during the rain-plagued 2009 WoO season.

Three events remain on the 2009 WoO schedule, all at the Dirt Track at Lowe's Motor Speedway in Concord, N.C. The Topless Showdown is set for Oct. 14, followed by the World Finals on Nov. 5-7.
