RAIN FORCES POSTPONEMENT OF THE UDTRA NORTH-SOUTH 100

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

UNION, KY - Heavy rain forced postponement of the United Dirt Track Racing
Association Pro DirtCar Series $15,000-to-win North-South 100 Saturday night
at Florence Speedway. The event has been rescheduled for Sunday afternoon.
The grandstand gates open at 1 p.m., and hot laps are scheduled for 2 p.m.

A field of 63 UDTRA Pro DirtCars were preparing for hot laps when the skies
opened up and drenched the -mile clay oval into a sea of mud. This forced
Florence Speedway and UDTRA officials to postpone the event until Sunday
afternoon.

Before the rains came, 15 historic dirt late model personalities were
inducted into the National Dirt Late Model Hall of Fame. Before the
induction ceremonies began, it was announced that Florence Speedway owner
Jerry King would build a permanent home for the National Dirt Late Model
Hall of Fame on the speedway grounds.

Mike Duvall, Buck Simmons, Freddy Smith, Jeff Purvis, and Rodney Combs
were
inducted into the NDLMHoF as active drivers. Larry Moore, Larry Phillips,
Charlie Swartz, the late Jim Dunn, and the late Jack Boggs were inducted
into the NDLMHoF as retired drivers. Jimmy Mosteller, C.J. Rayburn, Robert
Smalley, Ed Howe, and Earl Baltes were inducted into the NDLMHoF for
lifetime achievement.
