This weekend's #LetsRaceTwo doubleheader at Eldora has been called off. A combination of an extremely saturated grounds and an unfavorable forecast of up to two inches of rain between Thursday night and Saturday morning; parlayed with a new dirt surface has forced officials to cancel both nights of racing for the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series and USAC Amsoil National Sprint Car Series.
“Based on all the information we have gathered today, including current extreme saturation on the track and negative forecasts from our all of weather consultant resources, we made this difficult decision to cancel,” said Jerry Gappens, general manager of Eldora Speedway, which has received approximately 2 inches of rain since Sunday and is expecting another 2 inches by the weekend. “Hopefully, this early notice will help fans, teams, officials, and vendors reduce unnecessary travel costs.”
Neither of the two nights will be made up this season as there were no realistic scheduling options open that worked for both traveling sanctioning bodies.
The next event on the Eldora calendar will be Family Fireworks Night by Casey's on Saturday, May 21. The event is highlighted by the NRA Sprints, DIRTcar Modifieds and Eldora Super Stocks. The evening is capped off with a giant fireworks spectacular.
The World of Outlaws will be back for four consecutive nights of racing in July. That historic week is highlighted by Jokers Wild (Wed, July 13), the $100,000-to-win Historical Big One (Thur, July 14), The Knight Before (Fri, July 15), and the $175,000-to-win Kings Royal XXXIX (Sat, July 16).
