MOORESVILLE, N.C. — After monitoring the weather all week and speaking with several competitors and track officials in the area, CARS Tour officials have postponed this weekend’s Thrifty Tire Service Centers Puryear Tank Lines 300 pres. by The Grilling Store at Orange County Speedway.
“The uncertainty of being able to get the event in, and the major factor of not having Sunday to fall back on due to expected wash out led us to make the call to postpone this weekend’s race at Orange County,” said series director Chris Ragle.
“We really need to and wanted to race this weekend because, not only is Orange County the best track on the tour from a racing and fan perspective, but to reschedule and race these days without any conflicts is almost impossible. Sometimes you just have to make a call and hope that it’s the best thing based on the information you have.”
A reschedule makeup date for the race will be announced in the coming days, once time has been used to review all possible options.
The CARS Tour will look to schedule around the July 22 date set for the Mid Atlantic Classic weekend, featuring both Late Model Stocks and a $10,000 to win Super Late Model feature race.
The next race event for the CARS Tour will be at Hickory Motor Speedway on May 6.
