LAWRENCEBURG, IN – May 16, 2009 – Heavy overnight rain and more precipitation in the morning proved to be too much for Lawrenceburg Speedway’s grounds, forcing the cancellation of Saturday night’s World of Outlaws Late Model Series ‘Whiskey City 50.’
Track promoter Dave Rudisell made the decision to call off the evening’s scheduled action shortly before noon after surveying the facility’s saturated pit area.
Rudisell will talk with WoO LMS officials about the possibility of rescheduling the event later this season.
The rainout marked the second straight year that the WoO LMS lost a planned event at Lawrenceburg Speedway. Last year’s race was canceled because the track’s off-season reconstruction project, which transformed the speedway from a circular quarter-mile to a high-banked three-eighths-mile oval, was not yet completed.
The WoO LMS will continue on Sunday night (May 17) with the ‘Land of Lincoln 40’ at Lincoln (Ill.) Speedway. A $7,000 top prize will be on the line at the quarter-mile oval.
