Weekend WoO LMS Events Rained Out


LAVONIA, Ga. –- The wet weather plaguing the 2013 World of Outlaws Late Model Series has continued, wiping out the scheduled Peach State doubleheader at Lavonia Speedway and Swainsboro Raceway.

More than two dozen WoO LMS, regional and local teams were assembled for tonight’s action at Lavonia, but persistent light showers ultimately forced track co-owners Max King and Stan Lester to pull the plug on the national tour’s first-ever visit to the three-eighths-mile oval.

The 50-lap, $10,000-to-win event has been rescheduled for Nov. 5, two nights before the start of the World of Outlaws World Finals on Nov. 7-9 at The Dirt Track at Charlotte in Concord, N.C.

In conjunction with the announcement of Lavonia’’s postponement, WoO LMS officials also announced that the circuit’s scheduled event tomorrow night at Swainsboro (Ga.) Raceway has been called off following consultation with promoter Paul Purvis.

With heavy rain today saturating Swainsboro’’s grounds and more rain forecast for tomorrow, Purvis decided an early decision was in the best interests of fans and race teams. No makeup date for Swainsboro has been announced.

With the rainouts, the WoO LMS has already had eight events called off due to weather this season.
