Aaron’s USA 100 at VMS Falls to Rain AGAIN

JAMAICA, Virginia (August 6,2016) – After a 1 ½ hour rain delay and a yeoman’s effort at trying to get the racing surface back into shape officials of Bill Sawyer’s Virginia Motor Speedway and the Ultimate Super Late Model Series had to make the difficult decision to cancel the $20,000 to win 40th Annual Aaron’s USA 100 presented by Commonwealth Motorsports. This is the second time this year that the USA 100 has fallen to rain.

“We did all we could do to try and race tonight, we can’t thank the fans and competitors that came out to support us tonight for their support and patience throughout the night. We wanted desperately to get the USA 100 and the final race of the Colonial Clash Championship presented by Dirt Nation in tonight,” commented track owner Bill Sawyer.

The day looked promising with a packed pit area for the USA 100. After hot laps for the Modifieds, FASTRAK Pro Late Models and two sessions of Ultimate Super Late Model Series hot laps the rains came and stuck around for an hour and a half. Track and Series officials waited out the rain and then worked to get the track into racing shape. With the high humidity the more the track staff ran the track in the more moisture came to the top making for a very dangerous situation. It was determined at that time that there was no way to get the track back thus, forcing the cancellation.

“You can’t do anything about Mother Nature. The track did an outstanding job trying to get this race in tonight for our Ultimate Super Late Model and FASTRAK competitors, you can’t ask any more of a track staff, “commented FASTRAK / Ultimate Super Late Model Series Owner Stan Lester.

Lester added, “I hate that we couldn’t get in the final race of the Colonial Clash Championship but we did pay out the point fund to those that followed the mini-series. I also hate that we couldn’t honor Dale Hollidge as the Colonial Clash Championship Champion on the front stretch. I have to thank the track staff for trying to get this in and the drivers for their patience during the evening”.
