Lima, OH – Officials from the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series and Limaland Motorsports Park have cancelled the 27th Annual Brad Doty Classic due to an extremely saturated race facility following weeks of regular and heavy rain showers.

With the property already saturated from over four inches of rain though Monday and another inch on Tuesday afternoon and evening, there is not enough time for the facility to dry out and be prepared.

“Mother Nature has made it impossible to park cars let alone motorhomes, campers or race team trailers,” Brad Doty said. “With the continued rain and showers the past month we have not been able to get on the racing surface since July 3rd. We had hoped moving the event to Thursday would give us an extra day of drying time but thunderstorms Tuesday eliminated that opportunity. The property will not dry out in one day, let alone three or four. I would like to thank all of the fans for their support and a special thanks to all of our sponsors.”

Fans who have purchased pre-sale tickets may mail their tickets along with a return address to receive a refund. Tickets should be mailed to:

Limaland Motorsports Park
Brad Doty
1441 N. Cable Rd.
Lima, Ohio 45805

The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series returns to action this Friday and Saturday for the Knight Before the Kings Royal and the Kings Royal at Eldora Speedway. For more information on the event and to purchase tickets, visit
