(DUQUOIN, Ill. - October 14, 2012) - Today's Southern Illinois 100 presented by Federated Car Care at the DuQuoin State Fairgrounds has been cancelled as a result of heavy rain at the race track, and will not be rescheduled.
The event had already been postponed once, from Labor Day, for rain stemming from Hurricane Isaac's progression through the Midwest. Rain again this weekend caused ARCA and track officials to call the race off yet again after determining that at no time today would the track be suitable for racing, no matter the effort.
The ARCA Racing Series season will close in the Kansas Lottery 98.9 at Kansas Speedway on Friday, October 19 - five days from today - with race action starting at 8:30 p.m. ET (7:30 p.m. local) on SPEED. ARCARacing.com will also feature live timing and scoring coverage for the season finale.
Elsewhere in ARCA competition, qualifying for the ARCA CRA Super Series' Winchester 400 at Winchester Speedway has been bumped back to 10:30 a.m. today for rain in Indiana. The session had been scheduled for yesterday. As of now, that race is still scheduled for 2 p.m.
