Approaching Storms Prompt Fayetteville Motor Speedway To Call Off Friday Night’s World of Outlaws Late Model Series Event
FAYETTEVILLE, NC – April 19, 2013 – The likelihood of heavy rain and severe storms arriving late in the afternoon has prompted Fayetteville Motor Speedway officials to call off tonight’s scheduled World of Outlaws Late Model Series event.
FMS promoter Larry Lee made the decision late this morning after a final review of extremely unfavorable weather forecasts for the entire region surrounding the four-tenths-mile oval, which was set to host the WoO LMS for the first time since 2010.
“We’re really excited about having the World of Outlaws Late Model Series come to Fayetteville Motor Speedway but all indications are that the weather is just coming in at the worst possible time for us to race tonight,” said Lee. “All forecasts are consistent in calling for a 10- to 12-hour period of heavy rain and severe storms and unfortunately it’s expected to begin moving through around the time we’d be opening the gates or starting the racing program. We don’t want to bring everyone to the track to face those conditions so we concluded that making an early decision was in the best interest of the track, the fans and the racers.”
Lee will discuss the possibility of rescheduling Fayetteville’s WoO LMS event later in the 2013 season, but no immediate decision on a new date has been made.
The second half of the WoO LMS’s scheduled weekend doubleheader in the Tar Heel State will go as planned on Saturday night (April 20) at 311 Motor Speedway in Pine Hall, N.C.
