Saturday’s racing action from the 49th Annual Florida Governor’s Cup 200 at New Smyrna Speedway (FL) has been postponed due to rain.  Qualifying for the 200-lap Super Late Model race has been moved to Sunday.  The 100-lap Modified and 50-lap Pro Late Model features have been cancelled.


The rain started falling just as Super Late Model practice was coming to an end at 2:30 p.m. and never stopped.  Officials were forced to call Saturday’s action a few hours later.


Cars will hit the race track for the first time Sunday morning at 11:15am ET when the Super Late Models go out for a short practice session.  The grandstands will open for fans at noon.  Qualifying for the 49th Annual Governor’s Cup 200 will take place at 1:45 p.m. ET.  Racing will begin at approximately 2:30 p.m. ET.
