LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Lingering wet conditions from the same winter storm systems that led to the cancellation of Kentucky Lake Motor Speedway’s March 20 World of Outlaws Late Model Series event have forced officials from I-30 Speedway to also cancel the WoO LMS event scheduled for March 21 at I-30.
Large accumulations of snow that have slowly thawed and frequent rain have left the quarter-mile oval and its surrounding facility heavily saturated, with large portions of the track’s pit area inaccessible. With forecasts predicting more wet weather later in the week, track promoter Tracey Clay was forced to call off the event.
“I want to thank Tracey and her father Joe for their efforts to host this race,” WoO LMS Series Director Tim Christman said. “They’ve always done everything possible to get our races in. Unfortunately, the harsh weather this winter has made it impossible for the track to host a major event this weekend.”
In light of the cancellation, I-30 Speedway hopes to host an open practice on Sun., March 22 for its local divisions. More information is available by visiting www.I-30speedway.com.
World of Outlaws Late Model Series competitors return to action at the Douglas Dodge Ram Trucks Illini 100 March 26-28 at Farmer City Raceway in Farmer City, Ill. The blockbuster weekend features an open practice on Thurs., March 26 ahead of two separate WoO LMS programs on Fri., March 27 and Sat., March 28. Friday’s program features a 30-lap A-Main paying $6,000 to the winner, while Saturday’s main event winner will pocket a whopping $15,000.
General admission ticket prices for the Illini 100 are $25 for Friday and $35 for Saturday. Two-day tickets with a reserved seat are available in advance at the reduced price of $50.
