FAIRBURY, Ill. — Threatening weather all evening finally turned into a heavy downpour on Saturday night at Fairbury American Legion Speedway, forcing DIRTcar and Fairbury officials to halt the DIRTcar Summer Nationals and DIRTcar Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals events just before the late model Last Chance Showdown was scheduled to roll off with both A-mains yet to run.

DIRTcar and track officials are working on a date to complete the event. The two tours roll Sunday, June 22, to I-96 Speedway in Lake Odessa, Mich.
