SITKA – Heavy rain forced Thursday’s inaugural Bob Miller Memorial at 201 Speedway to be postponed. With the forecast for rain throughout the day and into the evening, 201 Speedway and Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series officials reached an agreement on Thursday morning to postpone the event to Sunday.
On Sunday, festivities will get underway with pit and general admission gates opening at noon. A mandatory drivers meeting will take place at 6 p.m., followed by hot laps at 6:30 p.m., then a complete show.
The LOLMDS will now trek north to Zanesville, Ohio for the “Creno’s 50” at Muskingum County Speedway on Friday night. The series will then travel to Portsmouth Raceway Park Park in Portsmouth, Ohio on Saturday night for the “Independence 50”. Capping off the holiday weekend will be the make-up event at 201 Speedway in Sitka on Sunday night. All three events will feature action-packed programs that include: Miller Welders Time Trials, Heat Races, B-Mains, and 50-lap, $10,000-to-win main events.
