GIBSONTON, Fla. — Steady Friday rain around Tampa forced postponement of the fifth round of the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series-sanctioned Dart Winternationals at East Bay Raceway Park, the track announced.
After determining early Saturday that track conditions would permit it, officials rescheduled to the $10,000-to-win event as the first half of a Saturday doubleheader with hot laps beginning at noon. | Complete East Bay coverage
