MARNE, MI – Sept. 21, 2012 – Rain forced the cancelation of Friday night’s World of Outlaws Late Model Series qualifying program at Berlin Raceway, setting up one full evening of action on Saturday topped by the historic Keyser Manufacturing ‘Down & Dirty 100’ presented by NAPA Auto Parts.
Berlin officials made the decision to shorten the weekend to a single night of racing on Saturday (Sept. 22) after showers settled over the 7/16th-mile oval late Friday afternoon and forecasts called for more precipitation to plague the area throughout the night.
The WoO LMS time trials and heat races that were scheduled for Friday night will now kick off Saturday’s card. B-Mains and the ‘Down & Dirty 100’ paying $20,000 to win will round out the itinerary on Saturday.
Saturday’s program will also include complete shows for the UMP Modifieds and Street Stocks.
Gates are scheduled to open at 3 p.m. and on-track action will begin at 6 p.m. on Saturday at Berlin, a renowned asphalt track that has been covered with over 300 truckloads of clay for this weekend’s much anticipated event.
Fans can obtain the latest information on the ‘Down & Dirty 100’ by logging on to www.berlinraceway.com or calling the track office at 616-662-2051.
