SPRINGFIELD, Ill. – For the second time, the Bettenhausen 100 presented by BRANDT has been canceled due to weather.
The USAC Silver Crown Series and the DIRTcar modifieds were scheduled to race Sunday afternoon, Sept. 22.
After consulting with USAC, a number of team owners and drivers, weather forecasters, and with the rain the Springfield area received on Saturday, many felt it would be best to cancel a day in advance.
Sunday’s forecast is unfavorable, with a number of models showing a near 100% chance of rain.
The cancellation marks the second time the event has been scratched due to weather. It was originally scheduled to be part of the Illinois State Fair on Saturday, Aug. 17.
The USAC Silver Crown Series season concludes Sept. 28 at Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio, with the running of the prestigious 4-Crown Nationals at the iconic half-mile.
