CONCORD, N.C. — Thunderstorms, cold weather and an all-around sour forecast have forced the cancellation of this weekend’s festivities for the World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series doubleheader weekend.
The Oct. 23 event at Kokomo (Ind.) Speedway and the following day’s event at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 in Pevely, Mo., have been canceled. The World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series event scheduled for Oct. 24 at Kokomo remains on as planned.
“Unfortunately, Mother Nature chose to not be a fan of the Hoosier Dirt Shootout,” event promoter Matt Curl said. “We hate to have to cancel the event altogether, but this weekend’s weather looks miserable, and with no viable reschedule dates, we had no other choice.”
Fans and race teams with armbands from Saturday’s portion of the Hoosier Dirt Shootout presented by Illinois State Rifle Association will receive a refund. In order to receive a refund, you must mail your armbands back to the following address: Fairbury Speedway P.O. Box 165 Fairbury, IL 61739.
