La Salle, IL (May 10, 2013)- Night one of the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series Spring Shootout at LaSalle Speedway has been cancelled due to unsafe track conditions. With a more favorable forecast projected for tomorrow, the $10,000 to win show for Saturday Night will proceed as scheduled.
Despite a tireless effort by the Izzo Family to get the track into racing condition, officials of the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series and LaSalle Speedway made the decision to cancel Friday Night’s show. The area received heavy rain on Thursday Night and cloud cover all day on Friday, making the track unable to dry sufficiently. 
“We hate it for the fans and drivers that came to the track on Friday, but the Izzo brothers worked and worked on the track to get it ready,” said Ritchie Lewis, Series Director of the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series. “The moisture kept coming back through the track surface despite the passionate efforts to get the track ready. With the combination of cloud-cover, no wind, and no sun on the track all day, we simply had to make the call to cancel tonight’s race. The track will be in good condition for tomorrow’s event, and we look forward to putting on a great show for the loyal fans in the area.”
