ROSSBURG, Ohio – Extensive rainfall during Friday night’s #LetsRaceTwo program at Eldora Speedway resulted in the track surface on the half-mile dirt oval being unable to be worked into a safe racing condition, necessitating postponement of the conclusion of the event to Saturday.
The day will feature twin A-Mains for the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car Series, alongside the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series.
Cold temperatures in the low 40s dramatically slowed the drying process on Friday night and into Saturday morning, which made the bottom half of the racetrack unusable as the event entered the hours of 1 and 2 a.m. ET, despite extensive effort by the Eldora Speedway track crew.
Fatheadz Eyewear Qualifying for the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car Series was completed Friday night, with Brady Bacon earning his 39th career fast time with the series, tying him with Levi Jones for fourth all-time in that category.
Qualifying results will seed the lineups for the heat races beginning at 2:30 p.m. ET on Saturday. A new, complete show will follow the conclusion of Friday’s postponed program, with the second round of racing slated for approximately 6 p.m. ET, or one hour after the conclusion of the first program.
All wristbands from Friday night’s event are valid for Saturday’s resumption of the night one program. At the conclusion of the first feature, the pits and grandstands will be swept and new tickets and new pit passes will be needed for re-entry.
The qualifying times:
1. Brady Bacon, 69, Dynamics-15.006; 2. Logan Seavey, 5, Baldwin/Fox/Curb-Agajanian-15.
