ULTIMATE Sanctioned USA 100 at Virginia Motor Speedway Postponed Until Friday August 23rd

ULTIMATE Sanctioned USA 100 at Virginia Motor Speedway Postponed Until Friday August 23rd

Jamaica, Virginia – For the second time this season Officials of the Virginia Motor Speedway and the ULTIMATE Super Late Model Series have elected to postpone the 34th Annual USA 100. The event which was originally scheduled for May 18th was delayed then until July 13th because of weather. And now with bad weather looming yet again officials have postponed the event again until Friday, August 23rd. “This is extremely disappointing but we have just been inundated with rain over the last two days and with the forecast still calling for even more of the same this was the only thing we could do; maybe the third time will be a charm,” commented track owner Bill Sawyer. The Friday night date will also allow the track and series to take advantage of the off night for the World of Outlaws who will be racing the following day at Winchester Speedway in nearby Winchester, Virginia. “The eastern seaboard and really most of the country has been plagued by continued rainfall over the last few weeks and that has left the ground saturated everywhere. So any additional rain just wreaks havoc for us racing promoters. Virginia Motor Speedway has been having rain off and on all day today (Friday) and the rain chances are still high for tomorrow. It’s just a no win situation. But we feel like we have picked another good date for the make-up and we will proceed with that. I want to thank the Sawyer family, Ernie Shelton, Dave Seay, Brian Tidball and the entire staff at Virginia Motor Speedway for working with us so closely and trying to take care of our drivers and fans. We are always excited about going to VMS so now we can continue to build that excitement up for a little while longer.” said ULTIMATE Series CEO and Founder Stan Lester. The speedway will return to racing Saturday July 27th for Virginia Army National Guard Tribute Night. The event will be a tribute to the fallen Virginia National Guard soldiers. There will be several displays and the speedway will help in raising funds for both the Some Gave All and Wounded Warrior charities.
