Rain Alters Eldora UMP DIRTcar Schedule
ROSSBURG, Ohio – Intermittent rain showers that moved into southwestern Ohio have altered the schedule for this weekend’s UMP DIRTcar National Championships at Eldora Speedway.
Originally scheduled for two-days, the racing program will now be contested tomorrow with a revamped time format.
Competitor registration and pit pass sales will continue as scheduled today (Friday), starting at Noon. Pit pass sales for the UMP National Championships are scheduled to resume tomorrow at 8 a.m., and the pit gates swing open at 9 a.m.
Under the revised format, practice laps for the UMP DIRTcar Modifieds are planned for 12:30 p.m., followed by their time trial runs. The UMP DIRTcar Late Models will follow in the same order; with the Modified heat races and Late Model Race of Champions to round out the carried over portion from Friday night.
Ticket pricing for the entire show will remain at $20 (general admission) and $40 (pit pass).
Saturday night’s original agenda will not be affected. A 6 p.m. start time will find, in order, Late Model heat races, Modified Race of Champions, B-Features for both classes and then conclude with a 25-lap, $3,000 to win Modified A-Feature and a 40-lap, $5,000 to win Late Model A-Feature.
