Excessive rainfall in the Carolinas has prompted the postponement of the opening race for the Carolina Pro Late Model Series’ second season.
“Ron Barfield, and Keith Graham had numerous conversations and made the difficult decision to postpone,” the Carolina Pro Late Model Series said in a statement posted on Facebook Monday afternoon. “Everyone took into consideration all the rain to date which has created weepers on the track surface along with the future forecast of 80%- 90% this Friday before making a final decision to postpone the February 20th race. With racers traveling in from numerous states we wanted to give everyone advance notice. A future race date will be announced at a later time.”
The 2021 season opener will now be held at Hickory Motor Speedway on March 13th before heading to Tri-County Motor Speedway on March 27th. The series will also make stops at Florence Motor Speedway, Carteret County Speedway and Orange County Speedway throughout the year.
The Carolina Pro Late Model Series kicked off its 2020 season at Dillon Motor Speedway last May after schedule alternations had to be made due to the coronavirus pandemic. The race was won by eventual series champion Carson Kvapil.
