WAYNESVILLE, GA (February 1, 2019) - Friday evening rain that halted the racing action during the second b-main has forced the postponement of the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series season opener.

The makeup program will tentatively resume with the second b-main at 12:00pm (noon) on Saturday, followed by the 50-lap, $12,000-to-win main event. Gates will open at 11:00am.

The makeup program will be followed by Saturday's regularly scheduled $12,000-to-win event with hot laps scheduled for 5:00pm.

Fans without a Friday or two-day armband can purchase a $10 armband to watch Friday's makeup event. Friday's support divisions will not makeup the remainder of their program but will compete in Saturday evening's event running for their full weekend purse (with 10 extra laps added to their respective features).
