TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (September 16, 2016) — Friday night’s “Jim Hurtubise Classic” at the Terre Haute (Ind.) Action Track featuring the USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship has been postponed to Saturday night, October 15 due to heavy afternoon rains which put a damper on racing at the ½-mile dirt oval.
A first batch of rain came through the Vigo County area around 12:30pm, but it was the rainfall arriving about an hour later that forced the postponement.
USAC and Track Enterprises officials have come together on a plan to reschedule the “Jim Hurtubise Classic” for Saturday night, October 15 at the Action Track in which the pit gates will open at 3:00pm and grandstands at 4:00. Hot laps will be on track at 6:00 with ProSource Qualifying at 6:30 and racing beginning at 7:00.
