Bubba Raceway Park NeSmith Chevrolet DLMS March Races Cancelled

. Posted in Racing News

NESMITH-LOGOCARTERSVILLE, GA – NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series and Bubba Raceway Park officials have come to a mutual agreement to cancel the NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series Touring Division races scheduled for the Ocala, FL track on March 6, 7, and 8.  The three races will not be rescheduled.

These three races were rescheduled from the Bubba’s Army Winternationals Presented By Rock Auto.com five-race series on January 28 through February 1.  With 46 race teams in attendance, all five races were rained out without a wheel being turned.  The series then went to Golden Isles Speedway in Brunswick, GA for a three-race series on February 6, 7, and 8.

The February 6 event was rained out, and run as an afternoon show won by Ray Cook of Brasstown, NC on February 7.  The NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series came back later that evening for another complete show that was won by Jason Fitzgerald of Middleburg, FL.  Walker Arthur of Forest, VA won the February 8 race.

"We want to thank the teams that made the long trip to Bubba Raceway Park in Ocala, FL and then had to sit through five straight days of rain,” NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series Director Adam Stewart said.  “It was an unfortunate and unprecedented situation, and our initial reaction was to reschedule for early March.  But after we spoke with the track officials and competitors, it was decided that the three rescheduled events needed to be cancelled, as several teams had depleted their travel budgets making the long trips to Central Florida and Southeast Georgia.  It was just too much to ask them to make a third trip that far south this early in the season.”

The NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series will make another trip to Bubba Raceway Park during the 2014 season on November 20-22 for the regularly scheduled 10th Annual 100-lap $10,000-to-win Chevrolet Performance World Championship Race.

The next two NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series events will take place on March 27-29 with the Old Smoky Moonshine Nationals at 411 Motor Speedway in Seymour, TN.  The track will host an open practice session on March 27, a 40-lap $2,000-to-win race on March 28, and a 50-lap $2,500-to-win race on March 29.
