Conoyer jumped the cushion in one and two, allowing Weisser to jump to second and pass Kissinger for the lead. Weisser was gone after that, leaving a race for second.

One More Strike by Mother Nature

19 MN Belle RO

 

BELLEVILLE IL — June 18, 2019 — As the Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals enjoys a beautiful night of racing at Jacksonville Speedway tonight, Mother Nature continues her wrath just one hour south in Belleville, Illinois, the next stop on the schedule. Saturated grounds and a 90 percent chance of rain all day and night have forced DIRTcar and track officials to cancel the event early, saving teams a futile journey.

 

Fortunately, this appears to be Mother Nature's final strike for the week as the forecast for the following five days looks clear. The Hell Tour will get back in action on Thursday, June 20 at Spoon River Speedway in Canton, IL before heading south again to Tri-City Speedway on Friday, June 21. Then on Saturday, the tour will make its first stop at Fairbury Speedway before leaving the Prairie State for Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt, IN on Sunday, June 23 and Clarksville Speedway on Monday, June 24.

Several of last week’s events rescheduled by Mother Nature

 

CONCORD, NC — June 18, 2018 — Tuesday's DIRTcar Summer Nationals and Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals events at Jacksonville (IL) Speedway will jumpstart the grueling schedules after Mother Nature put a damper on the opening week of action, leaving but a single winner on each tour: two-time defending Champion Brian Shirley and first-time winner Curt Spalding. Four of the five scheduled race nights were lost to wretched weather, but today’s sunny forecast will remedy that.

 

All points from rescheduled events will apply to the weekly points for their original date on the 2019 schedule. The Peoria (June 26), Sycamore (July 8), Route 66 (July 1) and Fayette County (TBA) make-up dates will all apply to the Northern Kickoff Week points along with completed show at Kankakee.
