Cold temperatures cancel Crate Late Model Nationals at Volunteer Speedway scheduled Nov. 12-13

BULLS GAP, Tenn. – The National Weather Service is predicting the coldest temperatures yet this fall for the upcoming weekend, thus resulting in Volunteer Speedway owner Landon Stallard and American Pro Late Model All-Star Series CEO/President Joe Rush having to make the difficult decision to cancel running of the $15,000-to-win second annual Crate Late Model National Championship scheduled Friday and Saturday, Nov. 12-13.

“It’s a tough call to make in canceling a race and really one you don’t want to, but the bottom line is it’s just going to be too cold for racing this weekend,” said Volunteer Speedway owner Landon Stallard this (Wednesday) afternoon. “The National Weather Service forecast predicts temperatures in the 30s Friday night, and then on Saturday the daytime high is only supposed to be in the mid-40s with wind-chill feeling like in the 30s, and then nighttime lows in the upper 20s. With cold temperatures like that fans just aren’t going to sit outdoors.

“Yeah, it’s November and you hope for the best with the weather. Look at how nice and sunny the days have been this week with temperatures around 70 degrees, but according to the National Weather Service meterologists it’s really supposed to turn off cold for the weekend. We had a great Crate Late Model National Championship event last fall and was looking forward to this year’s edition, but it just wasn’t meant to be.”

Track owner Stallard and American All-Star CEO/President Rush hoped to be able to reschedule, but circumstances just won’t allow it to happen.
