Rain Washes Out Sunday Night's 'Joy Mining Machinery 50' At Roaring Knob Motorsports ParkBy Kevin Kovac, WoO LMS P.R. Director
MARKLEYSBURG, PA – Sept. 4, 2011 – Heavy rain struck Roaring Knob Motorsports Complex late Sunday afternoon, forcing the cancelation of the evening's 'Joy Mining Machinery 50.'
The downpour hit shortly before the drivers' meeting was scheduled to begin in advance of the first-ever World of Outlaws Late Model Series event at the three-eighths-mile oval. With the pit area and racetrack quickly swamped by the deluge and forecasts calling for more rain in the coming hours, officials made the decision to call off the night's action.
It was the seventh weather-related cancelation or postponement of the 2011 season for the WoO LMS.
Event promoters will discuss the possibility of rescheduling the WoO LMS event this season. If the date is not reset, information concerning refunds for grandstand tickets and pit passes will be posted at www.worldofoutlaws.com.
The WoO LMS will return to action on Sept. 16 at Tri-City Speedway in Pontoon Beach, Ill., and Sept. 17 at I-55 Raceway in Pevely, Mo.
