ATLANTA, Ga. (November 1, 2018) – Due to the enormous amount of rain received yesterday at the track (Wednesday 10/31) and early today and with the high probability of rain predicted for Sunday, November 4th the Day two portion of the 10th Annual USCS Fall Nationals Finals presented by FireAde 2000 at Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis, Arkansas has been cancelled.

“We have tried to re-schedule this event on three dates and it just has not worked out. With the USCS Season Finale scheduled next weekend in Florida at Bubba Raceway Park we would have to go deep into November and with cooler temperatures and what seems to be a very wet Fall 2018, we are forced to throw in the towel and declare Mother Nature the winner this time,” said USCS President Pete Walton. “We were very excited about the field of 130 cars assembled in the five featured divisions and the great racing on Friday, October 12th in the preliminary events. We would have loved to have seen the Finals ourselves. It was also one of the strongest fields assembled in the USCS Outlaw Thunder Tour presented by K&N Filters winged sprint cars for the annual USCS Flip Flop twin-feature event.”

“We would like to thank the Riverside staff and owners for working hard not only this but, every time, to host this event. Additionally we would like to most of all thank the racers in every division and the race fans who have turned out to make this an exciting headliner season finale event at Riverside Int. Speedway each Fall.”
