First Rain-Out Of 2010 Comes At Pennsylvania’s Bedford Speedway

By Kevin Kovac, WoO LMS P.R. Director

BEDFORD, PA – May 28, 2010 – A line of severe late-afternoon thunderstorms rolled over Bedford Speedway on Friday, forcing the cancellation of the evening’s scheduled World of Outlaws Late Model Series event. 

The rainout was the first of the 2010 season for the WoO LMS, which had experienced few weather issues through the first 14 events of the campaign.

Bedford Speedway and WoO LMS officials are discussing the rescheduling of Friday’s 50-lap, $10,000-to-win event, which was slated to be the national tour’s first appearance of 2010 in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The series will now race in the Keystone State for the first time when it contests the fourth annual Firecracker 100 presented by on June 24-26 at Lernerville Speedway in Sarver.

The WoO LMS will spend the remainder of the Memorial Day weekend at West Virginia Motor Speedway in Mineral Wells for the ‘RaceFest World Championships.’ Two complete programs will be presented at the reopened five-eighths-mile oval – a 30-lap A-Main paying $8,000 to win headlines the program on Saturday night (May 29), and a 40-lap feature with a $10,000 top prize takes center stage on Sunday evening (May 30).
