Mother Nature picked up the victory on Saturday at the World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing, as rain washed out the second night of racing at New Smyrna Speedway (FL).  Track officials made the call to cancel the scheduled racing program just after 7 p.m. ET.

 

Any information regarding the rescheduling of the 50-lap Sportsman feature and the 25-lap Mod Mini feature will be announced at a later time.  The Super Late Model, Pro Late Model, and Florida Modified features have been canceled.  Stay tuned to Speed51 for more information regarding any rescheduling from Saturday’s racing program.

 

Saturday’s rainout marks the 37th rainout for the World Series since 1980.  This is the seventh time the second day of the World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing has been rained out since 1980, tying it with fifth day for most rainouts on a given day of the event in that span.

 

Racing will resume Sunday at New Smyrna Speedway with the 175-lap season opener for the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East.  There will also be a 30-lap feature for the Southern Sprint Car Shootout Series on the schedule.

 

Speed51 will provide Trackside Now coverage of tomorrow’s racing, beginning at 1:15 PM.
