ATTICA, Ohio – Heavy rain showers, a high-water table and saturated grounds at Attica Raceway Park combined to force the cancellation of Tuesday night’s Brad Doty Classic.
Cars had just rolled out for motor heat when severe thunderstorms moved into the area, thoroughly drenching the third-mile dirt track and bringing the night to a premature end.
Forty-nine cars were in attendance for the crown-jewel event, including NASCAR stars Kyle Larson and Christopher Bell, popular dirt open-wheel racer Rico Abreu and current All Star Circuit of champions point leader Aaron Reutzel, as well as the World of Outlaws regulars.
The 31st edition of the Doty will not be made up, due in part to the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series make-up event of Eldora Speedway’s #LetsRaceTwo finale, which is scheduled for the Brad Doty Classic’s traditional Wednesday night rain date.
Those who purchased a reserved ticket in advance to Tuesday’s event at Attica will receive a face value credit to their MyDirtTickets.com account to be used towards any World of Outlaws event available at WorldofOutlaws.com/tix.
If a credit to MyDirtTickets.com does not work, then fans have until Aug. 16 to request a face value refund. For more details call 844-DIRT-TIX Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., to speak with a customer service representative about the available options.
For fans who purchased a general admission ticket and a pit pass at Attica Raceway Park, call the raceway at (419) 680-5606.
The World of Outlaws field moves to Eldora Speedway for the remainder of the week, July 17-20, for four straight nights of racing that culminates with the $175,000-to-win Kings Royal on Saturday night. Donny Schatz is the three-time defending event champion.
