WINCHESTER, Va. – Wet weather forced the cancellation of Saturday nights World of Outlaws Late Model Series event at Winchester Speedway.
With light rain arriving during the afternoon and a dire forecast calling for a large swath of heavier precipitation to soon overtake the area, Winchester promoter Greg Gunter made the decision to call off the program early in an effort to save fans and racers from traveling to the three-eighths-mile oval.
No suitable raindate for the Ernie Ds & Gunters Honey 50 is available on the WoO LMS schedule, so Gunter will look to the 2013 season to bring the national tour to Winchester.
Saturday’s rain out is the fourth of the 2012 WoO LMS season and the third event that was not rescheduled.
The WoO LMS moves on to Selinsgrove (Pa.) Speedway on Sunday evening for the Jeffs Auto Body & Recycling 50. The tour will visit the half-mile oval for the first time.
