BROWNSBURG, Ind. — Report by Race Chaser Online Midwest Correspondent Aaron Bearden —

Indiana’s Champion Racing a fans will have to wait a little longer to get their fix.

This weekend’s 6th Annual Cabin Fever Championships at Lucas Oil Raceway have been postponed due to inclement weather, Champion Racing Association powered by JEGS officials announced late Thursday night.

“We hung in there as long as we could this week with the forecast, but when the rain chance doubled and the race day temperature dropped further along with 25 mph winds forecasted, we had no choice but to postpone this weekend’s events,” said CRA’s R.J. Scott. “There are too many people traveling long distances with the weather predicted to be too bad. We were prepared to endure a lot this weekend but the hurdles just became too great to proceed.”

The races, scheduled to be the first of a new six-race championship series for both the Late Model Sportsman and Street Stocks at the .686-mile track, will hopefully be run at a later date. CRA officials will announce the details of any possible reschedule early next week.

“We apologize for inconveniences,” said Scott. “We truly wanted to do everything we could to get this race in with the expected high car counts, but this decision is best for everyone. There is nothing worse than sitting in the freezing cold, battling high winds and possible rain, and not getting to race after getting to the race track. We didn’t want that for our racers or fans.”

With the Lucas Oil Raceway weekend postponed, the season opener for the Stealth Trailer CRA Street Stocks will now be the Door Buster 200 at Shady Bowl Speedway next Saturday, April 4th. The Vore’s Welding CRA Late Model Sportsman Series doesn’t have another race scheduled until April 24, also at Lucas Oil Raceway.
