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.
