Dirt Track at Charlotte
Friday rain sets up World Finals doubleheader Saturday
CONCORD, N.C. (Nov. 5) — 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 because of inclement weather.
“We have been monitoring the weather forecast and all indications are calling for rain throughout the evening hours,” said Christian Byrd, the track's general manager. “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.” | Complete World Finals coverage
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.
