(Editor’s Note: Champions Racing Association (CRA) officials had Travis Braden draw the invert for the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour 100 Friday night.  He will now start ninth in the field and Billy VanMeter will  lead the field to green.)


Mother Nature has claimed the first day of the Winchester 400 weekend at Winchester Speedway (IN).  After much deliberation, Champion Racing Association (CRA) and track officials decided to postpone Friday’s feature racing to Saturday night due to inclement weather.


The Vores Compact 25-lap feature and the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour 100 will now kick off Saturday’s racing action at 4:00 p.m. ET.


The ICAR Modifieds “B-Main” features, the 50-lap CRA Late Model Sportsman race, the “Run for the Gun” 50 for the ICAR Modifieds, the Thunder Roadster 20-lapper and CRA Street Stock 50-lapper will still round out the action-packed night of racing beginning at 5 p.m. ET.


Saturday’s afternoon schedule has been slightly adjusted.  Practice will still begin at 10:45 a.m. ET and remain in the same order, starting with the CRA Late Model Sportsmen.  ICAR Modified single-car qualifying has been canceled and times from the second round of practice for the division will be used to determine the main feature’s starting lineup.


Winchester 400 qualifying for the ARCA/CRA Super Series will now be at 3:15 p.m. ET.


Due to qualifying for the All-Stars Tour being canceled, the cars will line up for the main event according to combined overall results from today’s earlier practice sessions.  Travis Braden was fastest in overall practice with a blistering speed of 15.678 seconds and will lead the field to green.


Race fans who purchased the Friday portion of the Winchester 400 pay-per-view broadcast will be given access to Saturday’s live stream.  If you haven’t already purchased a video ticket for tomorrow and are interested, click here for more information.


Saturday’s live video stream on Speed51.com will begin at approximately 1:30 p.m. ET for ARCA/CRA Super Series qualifying.


Speed51.com will also have Trackside Now coverage starting with the second day of Winchester 400 practice at 11 a.m. ET.
