World Finals Friday Show Showered On

Charlotte RainbowConcord, NCNovember 5, 2010 – Tom Skibinski, Super DIRTcar Series PR Director

Friday’s portion of the Lowes Foods World of Outlaws World Finals presented by Bimbo Bakeries and Tom’s Snacks scheduled for The Dirt Track at Charlotte has been postponed until Saturday due to inclement weather.

“We have been monitoring the weather forecast and all indications are calling for rain throughout the evening hours,” said Christian Byrd, general manager of The Dirt Track at Charlotte. “With a weather forecast of this nature we feel the track surface would not be fit to race on until tomorrow morning. This decision has been made in the best interests of our fans and competitors. We appreciate our fans’ patience and look forward to a full day of racing tomorrow.”

The Dirt Track at Charlotte and World Racing Group officials will make every effort to make sure all scheduled racing events are fully completed so the fans will have the best possible racing experience this weekend.

The pit gate will open tomorrow at 9:30 a.m. and spectator gates will open at 10 a.m. Racing is scheduled to begin at 11 a.m.

Tickets purchased for Friday night’s action will be honored Saturday morning. Upon the completion of Friday’s scheduled portion of the event, there will be a break in racing action and the grandstand and pit area will be cleared to make room for those fans that have purchased Saturday tickets. Fans with further questions should contact the Charlotte Motor Speedway ticket office at 1-800-455-FANS (3267).

Before the heaviest of three showers ultimately cut the program short on Friday evening, Billy Pauch Jr. captured the 10-lap Big-Block Modified C-Main with Chris Higgins, Bob McGannon, Donnie Corellis and Ryan Forte joining Pauch in advancing to the B-Main round. Kyle Strickler was leading the first of two 10-lap B-Mains at the halfway mark when it was halted due to rain and that race will lead off the program on Saturday after hot laps.

The third and final day of activity in the Lowes Foods World Finals Presented By Bimbo Bakeries and Tom’s Snacks at The Dirt Track at Charlotte tomorrow also brings to a close the chase for the 2010 overall Hoosier Tire-VP Racing Fuels Mr. DIRTcar Championship. The Saturday showdown concludes with a nationally televised 40-lap Big-Block feature as Matt Sheppard and Jimmy Phelps battle for the coveted Mr. DIRTcar crown in a special four-hour broadcast seen across the country on SPEED TV beginning at 8 p.m.

Sheppard (2875) currently leads Phelps (2801), with longshot Billy Decker (2698), reigning Mr. DIRTcar Brett Hearn (2664) and Danny Johnson (2507) filling out the front-five on the points chart.

SRO For Saturday Show At Charlotte: Grandstand tickets for tomorrow’s racing action in the Lowes Foods World Finals presented by Bimbo Bakeries and Tom’s Snacks have sold out, although Charlotte Motor Speedway officials have announced that standing-room-only tickets have been put on sale for the 2010 World Racing Group finale at The Dirt Track at Charlotte. SRO tickets for Saturday can be purchased for $25, and fans are encouraged to contact the CMS ticket office at 1-800-455-3267 for further information. Highlighted by the $6,000-to-win 40-lap Big-Block Modified main on Saturday, joining the three-star card will be A-Mains for the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series (30 laps) and World of Outlaws Late Model Series (50 laps), each paying $10,000 to win.

SKIDMARKS
All-time DIRTcar Big-Block Modified feature winner Alan Johnson suffered a broken oil pump pulley after completing his timed hot laps on Thursday, returning on Friday only to discover permanent damage under the hood of the blue Raymond’s Car Care no. 14j RE Nolan Assoc.-Pizza Logs-Spraker Used Cars/Bicknell entry ….. 2008 SEF Small Engine Fuels 200 winner Frank Cozze fell victim to a rocker arm issue prior to the first round of heats on Thursday which also relegated him to the first C-Main, yet the Pennsylvania veteran made repairs in time to qualify for Saturday’s finale through preliminaries ….. Cozze joined defending Syracuse 200 champion Stewart Friesen, Matt Sheppard, Danny Johnson, Billy Decker, Tim Fuller, Alan Johnson, Kenny Tremont, Brett Hearn and Jimmy Horton on the list of past Super DIRT Week Big-Block winners that made the haul to North Carolina for the World Racing Group’s 2010 finale ….. Making his fifth visit to The Dirt Track at Charlotte, the 2010 edition of the Lowes Foods World Finals presented by Bimbo’s and Tom’s also marks the fifth different car that Dale Planck has driven down south. The second-generation chauffeur from Cortland, N.Y. steered the back-up no. fx1 Caprara car in DIRTcar Northeast’s 2001 debut and wheeled his own no. 77x Lym Motorsports Special in ’03 before picking up team rides in the no. 19 Lazore/Thompson entry in ’04 and no. 151kb McDonald mount in ’05 ….. This year running with owner Mike Payne in the no. 27j Rochester Americans-Waste Management-Honeoye Auto-Currier Plastics/Bicknell machine, Danny Johnson bounced around in his four previous attempts trying to master Charlotte with his familiar #27J adorning Sweeteners Plus-A&C Speedworld (2001), J & J Shop-Planned Poultry Renovations (2002), Troyer Race Cars (2003) and Advanced Lubrication Specialties-Seneca Auto (2004) rides to open the new millennium.
