RIVERHEAD, N.Y. – By Jason Cunningham, NASCAR — Adam Hunger/Getty Images for NASCAR photo — Due to inclement weather Saturday at Riverhead Raceway, the Riverhead 200 NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour race has been cancelled.
Rain moved over the track during afternoon practice and persisted into the evening, forcing the cancellation of the event by NASCAR and track officials.
Due to local regulations that prohibit Riverhead Raceway from running events after the month of September, no make-up date is available to reschedule the Riverhead 200. The Whelen Modified Tour has scheduled events the next two weekends to close out the month.
The Whelen Modified Tour will return to action on Saturday, Sept. 20 with the F.W. Webb 100 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
