Though light, the system circling the region has been consistent enough to leave the mile-long dirt track and surrounding fairgrounds unsuitable not only for racing, but also for the related activity of race teams, officials, emergency vehicles, fans, and more. Seven inches of precipitation have fallen over the area in the past three days.
Officials had expected dry conditions Monday and made the preemptive decision to push the day's schedule back three hours to allow the track to dry, but the rain continued.
The race has been rescheduled for Sunday, October 14.
The ARCA Racing Series will travel to the Kentuckiana Ford Dealers Fall Classic presented by Federated Car Care at Indiana's Salem Speedway on Saturday, September 15.
