Nov. 5, 2009 – Track Conditions Postpone Topless Showdown


    Track conditions forced the postponement of last night’s World of Outlaws Late Model Series Topless Showdown at The Dirt Track @ Lowe’s Motor Speedway in Concord, N.C. The 50-lap event will be run tonight. Separate incidents during the evening’s first heat sent series regular Chub Frank and former Carolina Clash champion Jeff Cooke to a local hospital. Frank was back at the speedway when the postponement announcement was made, but Cooke remains hospitalized with facial injuries.
