CHARLOTTE, NC – Southern Modified Racing Series (SMRS) officials announced today that Friday night’s events at Ace Motor Speedway have been postponed to Saturday night. Officials have been monitoring the forecasts for several days and it has continued to deteriorate, with rain chances in excess of 80 percent being forecasted for Friday throughout the day and evening.
“In the best interest of our teams and fans, we felt like it was best to go ahead and postpone the events scheduled for Friday night at Ace,” said Renee Hackett of the Southern Modified Racing Series. “The weather looks much better for Saturday and we can’t wait for the Southern Modifieds and all the other divisions to hit the track at Ace Motor Speedway without having to worry about the weather.”
