PHENIX CITY, Ala. – The 44th annual National 100 weekend, scheduled for Nov. 8-11 at East Alabama Motor Speedway, has been postponed.

Track officials made the announcement via social media late Wednesday morning.

“In the interest of safety for everyone, taking into account the updated weather forecast with cold temperatures also coming into play, as well as worries about parking issues from recent rains and flooding from potential severe weather conditions, the decision has been made to postpone all events scheduled for this weekend’s 44th annual National 100 for the first time in event history,” read the track statement. “We are sincerely sorry and disappointed to do this, because this is a lose/lose (situation) for everyone involved, including the track, officials, teams, drivers and race fans.

“We feel however this is the best decision to come to. We will announce details soon on the make-up date for this event as we work to find a suitable date to do so.”

The event annually features dirt super late models in a 100-lap brawl for a $25,000 winner’s share and marks one of the final crown-jewel events of the season.

Dale McDowell is the most recent winner of the National 100, having done so in 2017, while Scott Bloomquist is the event’s all-time leading winner with eight victories.
