JAMAICA, Va. – Officials with Virginia Motor Speedway and the FASTRAK Racing Series powered by Chevrolet Performance have announced that Saturday’s $3,000-to-win Northern Neck Chevrolet Prelude to the World Championship has been postponed.
The postponement comes due to forecasted heat indexes above 110 degrees.
The Prelude to the World Championship has been rescheduled for Saturday, Aug. 24.
“With heat indexes forecast for between 110 and 115 degrees, we feel it is in the best interest of the teams, fans, officials and sponsors to postpone,” said track owner Bill Sawyer, “We look forward to hosting the Prelude to the World Championship on Aug. 24.”
The Prelude to the World Championship will be the last chance for drivers on the FASTRAK Racing Series powered by Chevrolet Performance to get a paid practice at Virginia Motor Speedway ahead of the $50,000 to win 2019 FASTRAK World Championship.
The FASTRAK World Championship, with a total purse of $166,275, is the single richest race in dirt pro late model racing history.
