Due to a poor weather forecast, officials at Citrus County Speedway have made the decision to postpone the Full Throttle 100 originally scheduled for Saturday, September 12. The $10,000-to-win Super Late Model event will now be held on Saturday, October 3.
Track promoter Camron Ray explained that the decision to postpone the event was made in the interest of racers and fans who would be traveling to the event over the next two days.
“There’s a lot of bad weather that is supposed to be coming between tonight and tomorrow,” Ray stated. “So, we feel it’s the best decision for the drivers and fans that have a long way to travel that we needed to make a decision this soon. We hate having everyone drive all the way out here just to bring bad news. So it looks like October 3rd is the soonest date that there is nothing going on in the state of Florida for Supers. Also, it sounds like everyone that was on the entry list so far is making new plans to be here then!”
The Full Throttle 100 was expected to be one of the biggest Super Late Model races in the state of Florida this season. Late Model stars such as Bubba Pollard, Stephen Nasse and local hotshoe Jesse Dutilly were all expected to join a strong field of local stars for the event.
As a result of the postponement, the races originally scheduled for Citrus County Speedway on October 3 will now be pushed back one week to October 10.
Speed51.TV still plans to offer a live video stream of the Full Throttle 100 for those who are unable to make it to the race track on October 3.
