By Jeremy Fox

OSKALOOSA, Iowa (July 6) – Early morning rains left the track and speedway grounds too wet to race night two of the Budweiser and Musco Lighting Stock Car Shootout at Southern Iowa Speedway

As a result, the second night has been postponed to Wednesday, July 20. There will be a buy-in for new IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars, Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMods, IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks and Mach-1 Sport Compacts that night.

Also on the Southern Iowa Fair card are Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modifieds following the Hawkeye Dirt Tour.

Bill and Ray’s will sponsor any new driver on July 20 who did not race Tuesday and pay their pit pass in the Stock Car, SportMod, Hobby Stock and Sport Compact divisions.

The top eight in points from last night are locked in and will run a dash during the fair. Meanwhile any car that ran Tuesday night plus new cars will race heats and “B” features to qualify for the main event.

The Lee County Speedway portion of the Shootout is on for Thursday. Also racing are the IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Northern SportMods and IMCA Sport Compacts, plus Lee County Late Models and 305 Sprints. Hot laps are at 7 p.m. and racing is at 7:30 p.m.

The top 20 cars from the Osky and Lee County features, as determined by points, will run a $1,000 to win, winner-take-all event on July 20.
