Rain Forces Lucas Oil Raceway ARCA Postponement


CLERMONT, Ind. – Persistent rain from Tropical Storm Gordon has forced ARCA Racing Series officials to postpone the Shore Lunch 200 that was scheduled for Friday at Lucas Oil Raceway.

The event will now be held on Saturday, Oct. 6.

“It’s always our goal to race on the originally scheduled date, but Mother Nature just didn’t allow it tonight,” said ARCA president Ron Drager. “Not only was the weather not favorable tonight, the forecast for tomorrow for calls for a 100 percent chance of rain all day, so in conjunction with our partners at Track Enterprises, our Menards vendor partner and race entitlement sponsor Shore Lunch, our television partner for this weekend MAVTV, and the people here at Lucas Oil Raceway, we decided it was best to let everyone head home rather than spend another day here in the rain. We’ll look forward to coming back here on October 6 with much better weather, and in the mean time we turn our attention to the Kentuckiana Ford Dealers Fall Classic at Salem Speedway next Saturday night.”

Since no on track activity has taken place at Lucas Oil Raceway, the event will still include a full round of practice, General Tire Pole Qualifying and the Shore Lunch 200 feature event. A complete schedule will be released in the near future.
