Volusia Rained Out Monday; USAC Sprint Doubleheaders Tuesday!

After receiving heavy continuous rain with thunderstorms in the area and more on the way at Volusia Speedway Park, officials have concluded Monday’s DIRTcar Nationals program with the safety of teams and fans in mind.

By completing the Elliott’s Custom Trailers & Carts Semi-Feature for the USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship and the DIRTcar Late Models, Monday’s program is deemed complete.

However, to make sure drivers and fans still get the shows they came for, Monday’s USAC Sprint Car Feature is being moved to the Tuesday, February 13 program and Monday’s DIRTcar Late Model Feature is being moved to Wednesday, February 14.

That will give fans a USAC doubleheader on Tuesday with the DIRTcar Late Models and then four DIRTcar Late Model Features on Wednesday in addition to the Super DIRTcar Series program.

Federated Auto Parts DIRTcar Nationals at Volusia Speedway Park continues Tuesday, Feb. 13, with DIRTcar Late Models and USAC Sprint Cars.

Leary (Greenfield, Ind) set a new USAC track record in qualifying with a lap of 16.173 seconds for an average speed of 111.297 mph.
