SPEEDWAY, Ind. — Wednesday night’s Driven2SaveLives BC39 opening night program at The Dirt Track at Indianapolis Motor Speedway has been canceled due to rain.
Wednesday’s program was to feature two sessions of USAC NOS Energy Drink Midget National Championship practice followed by the Stoops Pursuit 25-lap race. USAC and IMS are working to determine if there is a suitable option to run the Stoops Pursuit this weekend.
The BC39 will resume on Thursday night, Sept. 28, at IMS with the first of two preliminary night events featuring a split field with one half of the field competing on Thursday and the other half competing on Friday.
Thursday’s event will have a bit of an earlier start than initially scheduled.
The front gates will open at 4 p.m. (ET) followed practice at 5 p.m. (ET). The regularly scheduled program will begin with hot laps at 6 p.m. (ET) and finish off with the first full night of racing action, consisting of heat races, qualifiers and the main events, concluding with a $5,000-to-win, 30-lap feature.
The racing program on Friday, Sept. 29, will resemble much the same as Thursday’s event with hot laps followed by heat races, qualifiers and the main events, concluding with a $5,000-to-win, 30-lap feature.
