ROSSBURG, OH (October 5) – Heavy Saturday morning rains, combined with a dire Saturday evening/Sunday morning forecast prompted Eldora/UMP DIRTcar officials to postpone day number three of the UMP DIRTcar National Championships. The event has been moved to April 12, 2014, with full details for the Modified and Late Model competition to be announced soon.

Prior to the rains, eight-$1,000 to win Modified features were completed over the course of Thursday and Friday, with Brian Ruhlman doubling up for two wins. Single wins were captured by Bryan Barber, Devin Gilpin, Jerry Bowersock, Jonathan Taylor, Matt Mevert and Kent Robinson.

Persons holding tickets for Saturday’s scheduled race meet can use them at face value for the April 12 rescheduled date or any other Eldora event through May 25, 2014.

Eldora will conclude its 2013 race season Saturday, October 12 with the Sprintacular featuring Sprint Cars of the All Star Circuit of Champions, BOSS and NRA Sprint Invaders. Event and ticket information may be found online at www.EldoraSpeedway.com.
