Night 1 of Convention Holiday Classic Falls to Rain
Sportsman and Street Stock Events Added to Saturday Night Program
BARBERVILLE, Fla. — December 11, 2008 — Continuous rain has forced the cancellation of the first night of Volusia Speedway’s Convention Holiday Classic. The Sportsman and Street Stock events originally scheduled for tonight have been added to the Sprint Car program on Saturday night.
Volusia Speedway Park’s Convention Holiday Classic, features three nights of DIRTcar Racing.
Tonight’s event, previously scheduled to launch the inaugural event, included a $1,000-to-win UMP DIRTcar Sportsman feature in addition to $500-to-win UMP DIRTcar Street Stock feature. Those events have been postponed to Saturday night’s program.
Friday night’s schedule heats up as Volusia’s own Florida DIRTcar Late Model drivers hit the dirt in a head-to-head battle with $3,000 on the line, followed by UMP DIRTcar Modifieds tackling the monster half-mile oval for a shot at the $1,200 checkered flag. Adult general admission is $20 — $15 with a PRI badge. Late Model entry fee is $75.
The Convention Holiday Classic winds down on a high note Saturday as the Top Gun Sprint Car Series and Florida Mini-Sprints take to the stage for high speed thrills. Added bonus for the Saturday night show includes the postponed Sportsman and Street Stock events. Adult admission on Saturday night is $15.
Pit gates open at 4:30 pm, grandstand gates open at 5:30 pm and racing starts at 7:30 pm.
