FARMER CITY, Ill. – March 23, 2015 – Fans anxious to experience the Douglas Dodge Ram Trucks Illini 100’s new two-day format will have to wait a little longer than expected.
With weekend forecasts calling for temperatures below freezing at Farmer City Raceway, officials have postponed the World of Outlaws Late Model Series event to April 17-18.
The event’s new date will feature the same format originally planned for this weekend with Farmer City’s quarter-mile oval hosting two complete WoO LMS programs. A $6,000-to-win program will be held on Friday, April 17, ahead of a $15,000-to-win event on Saturday, April 18. Both programs will feature a full slate of WoO LMS time trials, heat races, Last-Chance Qualifiers and feature races.
“Our goal with all World of Outlaws Late Model Series events is always to put on the best show possible,” said WoO LMS Series Director Tim Christman. “Temperatures well below freezing wouldn’t be in the best interest fans, race teams or sponsors. Hopefully, the new date will provide better weather and make for a great experience for everyone.”
Tickets purchased in advance will still be good for the delayed event. General admission ticket prices 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. Two-day ticket prices at the gate will be $55 without reserved seating. Tickets are available now at http://dirtcar.ticketforce.com.
The next action for the World of Outlaws Late Model Series will be a Tennessee doubleheader slated for April 11-12. Duck River Raceway Park in Wheel, Tenn., hosts the tour on Friday, April 11, with action moving to Tazewell (Tenn.) Speedway on Saturday, April 12. Shane Clanton of Zebulon, Ga., leads the series standings with a 90-point advantage over three-time and defending champion Darrell Lanigan of Union, Ky.
