Prelude Line Up Changes
September 8, 2009 | 12:36 P.M. EST
Four drivers originally set to participate in the event, which was rained out and postponed from its original June date, will not be able to take part in Wednesday's race.
Carl Edwards will be sidelined as he nurses a broken right foot. Jeff Gordon will sit out the event as a precaution due to his injured back. Bill Elliott suffered fractured ribs in a recent racing event and will miss Wednesday's race. And Ohio native Dave Blaney won't be able to attend due to the passing of his aunt.
In all 23 drivers will take part in the 30-lap main event at the half-mile dirt track which raises proceeds for:
• Wounded Warrior Project
• Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund
• Operation Homefront
• Fisher House
The event will also be available by pay-per-view. The suggested retail price is $24.95 and available to more than 71 million pay-per-view homes. Ordering information and up-to-the minute racing information is available at www.hbo.com.
