UMP tour washed out at Belle-Clair
With continuing rainfall and the forecast calling for more throughout the day, Wednesday's scheduled UMP DIRTcar Summernationals program at Belle-Clair Speedway in Belleville, Ill., has been washed out. No makeup information was announced for the $5,000-to-win event.
Belle-Clair makes just the third rainout on the Hell Tour to date, with action previously falling to Mother Nature on June 21 at Farley (Iowa) Speedway and June 30 at Terre Haute (Ind.) Action Track.
Brandon Sheppard of New Berlin, Ill., has won the last five Summernationals events, while Bobby Pierce of Oakwood, Ill., tops Shannon Babb of Moweaqua, Ill., atop the series standings with nine scheduled events remaining.
