Rain Pushes K&N East Opener To Monday


NEW SMYRNA BEACH, Fla. — The K&N Pro Series season opener will have to wait.

Rain forced the postponement of Sunday night’s New Smyrna 175 at New Smyrna Speedway to Monday night. The race is scheduled to go green at 7 p.m., the first race of the night, to kick off another evening of the New Smyrna Speedway World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing.

After qualifying was canceled due to precipitation, track crews and Air Titans worked feverishly to dry the track. Showers persisted, and NASCAR was forced to move the 175-lap event to Monday.

Hailie Deegan will start first, followed by Drew Dollar, Brandon McReynolds, Sam Mayer and Colin Garrett.
