Terre Haute, IN……..Extreme heat and deteriorating track conditions which resulted in an aborted start forced postponement of Sunday afternoon’s First Financial Bank “Sumar Classic 100” at the Terre Haute Action Track. The United States Auto Club, after extensive efforts to prepare a track suitable for racing, will now seek an alternate date to conduct the event. USAC extends its sincerest appreciation to the fans and participants who supported this event and will announce a rescheduled date when it is firm. “We obviously are sorry that Saturday night’s heavy rains in the Terre Haute area presented some difficult challenges for us all and we are dedicated to giving our fans the most competitive event possible,” said Jason Smith, USAC Executive Vice-President. “Unfortunately, we were prepared for a great event before the heavy rains created circumstances which led to this postponement. This decision was made in the best interest of safety for our participants
fans.” Levi Jones posted the fastest qualifying time prior to the cancellation. Thomas Meseraull escaped injury in a flip on the aborted original start.
