BARBERVILLE, Fla. (Feb. 9) — Wet weather continued to plague the 39th annual DIRTcar Nationals by University of Northwestern Ohio, canceling Tuesday's DIRTcar UMP Late Model-modified doubleheader at Volusia Speedway Park.
Steady rain began falling on the D-shaped half-mile track about 1 p.m. continued for several hours, soaking the racing surface and grounds. Officials decided shortly after 3 p.m. to cancel the evening's planned program.
It was the third rainout in eight nights of the 2010 DIRTcar Nationals by UNOH but marked the first lost show for the Late Models that invaded Volusia on Monday.
Four nights of doubleheader action remain for the DIRTcar Nationals by UNOH, highlighted by UMP Late Model events on Wednesday (Feb. 10) and Friday (Feb. 12) and the season-opening World of Outlaws Late Model Series programs on Thursday (Feb. 11) and Saturday (Feb. 13). Each evening's card will also include big-block modified action.
Tickets purchased for Tuesday night's rained-out event may be presented for any of the remaining programs during the DIRTcar Nationals. If tickets can't be used, mail them for a refund to Volusia Speedway Park, 1500 E SR 40, DeLeon Springs, FL, 32130.
