Cochran Xtreme DIRTcar Run Washed Out


COCHRAN, Ga. — A rainy couple of weeks have saturated the grounds at Cochran Motor Speedway, forcing Drydene Xtreme DIRTcar Series and track officials to cancel Saturday’s scheduled event.

The event will not be made up.

The Drydene Xtreme DIRTcar Series will continue on Sunday at Cherokee Speedway in Gaffney, S.C., with a 40-lap, $5,000-to-win event that also includes $1,000-to-win 602 Late Model, $1,000-to-win Stock Outlaw RWYB, $600-to-win Thunder Bomber and $500-to-win Extreme 4 FWD races.

Gates at Cherokee Speedway will open at 10 a.m. On-track action will begin at 1 p.m. Grandstands are $20, with kids 10-and-under free.

The Drydene Xtreme DIRTcar Series wraps up on Saturday, Feb. 29, at Modoc Raceway in South Carolina.

Through three Drydene Xtreme DIRTcar Series events, two-time winner Chris Madden leads the championship standings by a slim 15 points over Trent Ivey with Kyle Strickler, Logan Roberson and the series’ most recent winner – Zack Mitchell – rounding out the top five.

Brandon Overton, Chris Ferguson and Ross Bailes are all within striking distance in the top 10.
