High Temperatures Postpone FASTRAK Prelude to the World Championship

Carnesville, GA – Officials with the FASTRAK Racing Series powered by Chevrolet Performance and Virginia Motor Speedway have announced that the $3,000 to win Prelude to the World Championship has been postponed as forecasted heat indexes are above 110 degrees. The Prelude to the World Championship has been rescheduled for August 24th at Virginia Motor Speedway.

“With heat indexes over 110 we feel it is in the best interest of the teams, fans, and officials to postpone,” said FASTRAK Vice President DJ Irvine, “we are looking forward to the Prelude to the World Championship on August 24th.”
