Wet Forecast Halts Lucas Oil Late Models Mid-Atlantic Tripleheader

BATAVIA, Ohio — The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series has again fallen victim to Mother Nature.

Rain is forecast to move into the Mid-Atlantic region on Friday and continue through the weekend, with more than an inch of rain expected in some locations. 

The $18,049-to-win Melvin L. Joseph Memorial at Georgetown (Del.) Speedway has been rescheduled to August 24 – preceding The Rumble by the River at Port Royal (Pa.) Speedway.    

The Conococheague 50 at Hagerstown (Md.) Speedway will not be made up this season.

Sunday’s Battle in the Borough at Port Royal will also not be made up. The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series will return to Port Royal Speedway on August 25-26. The Rumble by the River includes a pair of $5,000-to-win programs on Friday before the culmination in a $50,000-to-win finale on Saturday.

The season will continue on May 4 when the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series and the Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions converge at Atomic Speedway for The Night the Stars Come Out.

From there, teams head south to Ponderosa (Ky.) Speedway for the John Bradshaw Memorial. The 37th Annual Ralph Latham Memorial will close out the weekend on May 6 at Florence Speedway.
