Wilmot’s scheduled Diamond 44 for WABAM Dirt King Late Models along with WingLESS sprints, Lightning Sprints and Modifieds was rained out on May 15 when off and on rains hit the facility just as the grandstand gates were opening. Additional rain came just after track crews reworked the racing surface and additional rain fell during hot laps, forcing officials to call the program.
