CONCORD, N.C. — The World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series, together with Illinois’ Farmer City Raceway, have postponed the Illini 100, which was originally scheduled for April 2-4.
Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker has issued statewide orders for residents to shelter in place as part of the effort to curb the COVID-19 situation, which forced series and track officials to postpone the event.
The $15,000-to-win event has become an early season staple for dirt late model fans and racers. World of Outlaws and Farmer City Raceway officials plan to reschedule the weekend.
Amid precautions related to coronavirus concerns, the series previously postponed events set for March 27 at Volunteer Speedway in Bulls Gap, Tenn., and March 28 at Cherokee Speedway in Gaffney, S.C. World of Outlaws officials also intend to reschedule those events, as well.
