    ARCA on-track acitivty on Sprinfield MIle Dirt delayed

    (SPRINGFIELD, Ill. – August 17, 2014 -- 7:15 a.m. CT) – Track work has started on the mile dirt track at the Illinois State Fairgrounds as crews are preparing the surface for today’s ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards race.

    ARCA President Ron Drager said that the scheduled 9 a.m. CT practice is not likely to happen on time.

    “It’s unlikely we’ll make the 9 a.m. time,” Drager said. “But, we’ll monitor the progress and post an update to the schedule once we have a good handle on how long the process will take.”

    Using road graders, tractors and trucks, crews from the fairgrounds and Track Enterprises began prepping the track early this morning after Saturday’s rain. The rain was the reason the USAC race scheduled for Saturday afternoon was postponed.

    The original schedule for today’s Central Illinois SuperChevyStores.com includes the 9 a.m. practice, qualifying at 11:15 a.m. and the race at about 1:30 p.m. However, the track is not yet ready in time for practice. We'll update you as info becomes available from track and state fair officials.

    SPRINGFIELD, Ill. - August 16, 2014) - The ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards is getting set to run its first race on dirt of the 2014 season at the Illinois State Fairgrounds in Springfield.

     

    The Central Illinois SuperChevyStores.com 100 is scheduled as a one-day event for Sunday, August 17.

     

    The schedule calls for a 9 a.m. practice, an 11:15 qualifying session and the race around 1:30 p.m. CT.

     

    A USAC race on the one-mile dirt oval on Saturday, August 16, was postponed due to weather, but ARCA officials said early Saturday evening that officials planned on doing everything they could to maintain Sunday’s regular race schedule. With an improving weather forecast for Sunday, race promoter Bob Sargent and the crew at the track will be working to prepare the dirt oval for Sunday’s events, ARCA officials said.

    Now for the reason for creating this site
     
    This site was created by me because of frustations with other internet service providers, and is for the use of anyone who's interested in anything about NASCAR. 
     
      However,over time I hope to add other auto racing news,from other auto racing series / venues ,in the hopes of having something here for everyone to enjoy.
