Ocala, Florida (February 6, 2021)………Saturday afternoon’s second event of the day for the USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midgets at Bubba Raceway Park was rained out just prior to the start of heat races.
A new event for the USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midgets is now scheduled for Monday night, Feb. 8 at Bubba Raceway Park, the 3/8-mile D-shaped track in Ocala, Fla. Pits open at 4pm ET, with the front gates at 5pm and cars on track at 6pm.
For Monday, adult general admission tickets are $30 with kids age 11 and under free. Pit passes are $40 apiece and will be streamed live on FloRacing.
With tornado warnings in the area, and heavy rain falling, which is forecasted to continue for the rest of the evening, the event came to an end following Fatheadz Eyewear Qualifying where Tanner Thorson (Minden, Nev.) recorded quick time.
Saturday’s Fatheadz Qualifying session will count toward the USAC NOS Energy Drink Midget National Championship points due to it being a complete session. However, Monday’s program will begin completely from scratch, starting with hot laps and qualifying before going into the heat races, semi-feature & feature event.
