Alabama Gang 100 Feature Postponed After Heavy Rain

TALLADEGA, Ala. — With an evening thunderstorm bringing heavy continuous rain, World of Outlaws CASE Construction Equipment Late Model and Talladega Short Track officials agreed to postpone the remainder of the Alabama Gang 100 to Sunday, Sept. 15. 

Rome Speedway’s Swims family graciously gave up their Sept. 15 World of Outlaws race date for the series to complete the 75-lap, $35,000-to-win feature at Talladega.

There will be no World of Outlaws event at Rome this season. 

“I want to thank the staff of the World of Outlaws, Talladega Short Track, and [United Sprint Car Series] for trying to finish Saturday’s event,” World of Outlaws Late Models Series Director Steve Francis said. “I am very fortunate that Rome Speedway and the Swims family were gracious enough to give their date in September for us to complete the Alabama Gang 100.

“We will continue to work with them in the future.”
