OCALA. FL (January 28) - Rain has washed out the NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series opener for the Bubba’s Army Winternationals and Round 2 of the RockAuto.com Winter Shootout for the NeSmith Late Models tonight at Bubba Raceway Park. The weather forecast for Friday and Saturday looks good and those races are set to go on as scheduled.
On Friday afternoon, Bubba Raceway Park will host a practice session beginning at 1 p.m. prior to the NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series 50-lap $2,500-to-win event. NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series Pre-Race Registration and Technical Inspection will be from 2 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. The Drivers Meeting is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. with racing to follow.
Drivers that have not yet purchased their Annual Membership and completed their 2016 paperwork are encouraged to be at Registration early in order to complete this and draw for their spot in the qualifying line.
The NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series and Bubba Raceway Park will team up to give race fans a Saturday Double-Header with two big races in one day and night. The 50-lap $3,000-to-win Round 3 of the RockAuto.com Winter Shootout will take place on Saturday afternoon. NeSmith Late Model Pre-Race Registration and Technical Inspection will begin at 11 a.m., with the Drivers Meeting at 1 p.m. Hot laps are scheduled for 1:30 p.m. with racing at 2 p.m.
At the completion of the daytime race on Saturday, the grandstand will be cleared, and the track reworked for the nighttime show, the rescheduled 11th Annual Chevrolet Performance World Championship Race going for 100 laps and paying $10,000-to-win.
The NeSmith Late Models will pick up where they left off in November with a pair of B-Main races to fill starting positions 17 through 24 for the main event. The first 16 starting spots were determined on November 20, 2016 through four Heat Races with the top four finishers in each heat race earning a spot in the big show.
