Rain Forces Cancelation Of Tuesday Nights DIRTcar Nationals by UNOH Action At Volusia Speedway
BARBERVILLE, FL Feb. 9. Wet weather continued to plague the 39th annual DIRTcar Nationals by
University of Northwestern Ohio, forcing the cancelation of Tuesday'sDIRTcar UMP Late Model/Modified doubleheader
at Volusia Speedway Park.
Steady rain associated with a cold front that swept across the state of Florida began falling on the half-mile oval
around 1 p.m. and continued for several hours, soaking the racing surface and grounds.
It was the third rainout in eight nights of the 2010 DIRTcar Nationals by UNOH, but marked
the first lost show for the DIRTcar UMP Late Model division that invaded Volusia on Monday. The cancelation ended
the week of competition for the UMP Modified class, which was a victim of all three rainouts.
With Tuesday's program scheduled to end the UMP Modified portion of the mid-winter racing extravaganza outside
Daytona Beach, Dave Hess Jr. of Waterford, Pa., was declared the division's 2010 DIRTcar Nationals champion.
Four nights of doubleheader action remain for the DIRTcar Nationals by UNOH, highlighted by UMP Late Model events
on Wednesday (Feb. 10) and Friday (Feb. 12) and the season-opening World of Outlaws Late Model Series programs on
Thursday (Feb. 11) and Saturday (Feb. 13).
