Deery Brothers finale at 34 Raceway rained out
WEST BURLINGTON, Iowa (Sept. 19) — Sunday’s rescheduled Pepsi USA Nationals Deery Brothers Summer Series show at 34 Raceway has met the same fate as the program originally planned for Saturday.
Rain, standing water and less than ideal track conditions combined to force cancellation of what was to have been the final event of 2010 for the IMCA Late Model tour. Jason Frankel had won the first qualifying heat and pole start for the main event, and T.J. Criss won the J&J Steel Ironman Challenge on Friday. | Pepsi USA Nationals prelims
