Waycross, GA – This weekend’s Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series-sanctioned events at Dixie Speedway in Woodstock, GA and Rome International Speedway in Rome, GA scheduled for October 3rd & 4th, have been cancelled.
With the worsening of weather forecasts for both events this weekend, and with race-fans in the South East and along the Eastern Seaboard dealing with the ongoing effects of Hurricane Joaquin, the decision was made by track officials and Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series officials to cancel both events.
