Rain Beats NeSmith LMs Again
OCALA, Fla. — The sign at the state line that proclaims Florida as the “Sunshine State” might need to be rethought, as rain washed out the NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series race for the fourth straight day on Friday for the Bubba’s Army Winternationals Presented by Rock Auto.com. Series and track officials will try again on Saturday with two races in one day.
Rain washed out the NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series event for the fourth straight night at the Bubba’s Army Winternationals at Bubba Raceway Park in Ocala, FL. The series will try again on Saturday with two complete shows. The first show will be a 40-lap $2,000-to-win race at 12 noon, and the second event will be a 50-lap $3,000-to-win race at 7 p.m.
The NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series Touring Division will try to salvage what has been the “Wetternationals” again on Saturday afternoon with a 40-lap $2,000-to-win race. This will be the make-up race from Tuesday night’s rainout. Rain checks and entry fees will be honored for this race.
At the completion of the afternoon show, the grandstand will be cleared and readmitted for another NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series complete show with a 50-lap $3,000-to-win race on Saturday night. The two Saturday shows at Bubba Raceway Park will be Rounds 1 and 2 of the 2014 NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series season.
