Unfavorable forecast cancels Late Model, Modified event at Richmond Raceway

The return of Late Models and Modifieds to Richmond Raceway will have to wait until next year …

This weekend’s Commonwealth Classic at Richmond Raceway has been postponed due to the threat of rain.

The event was supposed to be headlined by the Pro All-Star Series Super Late Models, Late Model Stocks and Tour-Type Modifieds. The event will not be made up this season with both parties looking to 2019 for a replacement date.

“While we are disappointed with the postponement of the event, we feel we have made the best decision for the series, teams, and our fans after looking at the unfavorable weather forecast and the distance many teams were scheduled to travel from the northeast, south, and Canada,” said PASS President Tom Mayberry. “We look forward to continuing to work with the staff at Richmond Raceway to continue to promote this event on a new date in 2019.”

Track and series are officials are looking to March 30 as the new date for the debut Commonwealth Classic. The official date will be confirmed within the next few weeks.
