As we have previously announced, the DIRTcar Summer Nationals event will not be made-up this Sunday as planned. Below is our full statement regarding the cancellation of that event:
The DIRTcar Summer Nationals make-up event scheduled for Sunday August 30th at Quincy Raceways has been canceled due to an anticipated lack of participation that would result in a lesser quality show than planned.
We probably should have announced this as a rainout right after the event since the B-Main had not been completed. Given all of the rainouts on the Summer Nationals this year, we decided to try to find a time to make the race up. However, over the past several days we stepped back to look at how the make-up would look to make sure that our fans were getting the type of show they were paying for.
The way we had things set-up, fans would be giving us $37 to watch Sunday’s show. $25 of that being the Summer Nationals rain check and $12 for admission to our regular show Sunday. We did not feel that fans would be getting $37 of value from this Sunday’s show.
All rain checks would have to be used Sunday and could not be valid for future races. With kids back in school and us racing on Sundays, we heard from many fans who would be unable to attend this event to get the value out of their rain check. So we tried to strike a balance that was fair to both our fans who had purchased tickets and teams that participated.
By cancelling the event, we will now be able to make our grandstand tickets from that night rain checks good for their value toward admission at either Quincy Raceways or Jacksonville Speedway for the remainder of the season. This lets our fans enjoy as many as two shows on their rain check.
Quincy Raceways will be compensating teams who had qualified for the A-Main event. DIRTcar officials will be in contact with those teams regarding arrangements. While we could have just announced it as a rainout with no compensation, we feel like after having carried this event an additional two months on our schedule, that providing compensation for teams was appropriate.
After we get things arranged with the teams who had qualified for the A-Main, we will begin working toward a suitable resolution for our B-Main teams – most of which were local. We are also working on a fair way of resolving the modified event. We expect to make an announcement on that next Sunday.
We will have our regular weekly show at Quincy Raceways on Sunday August 30th. Grandstand tickets from the Summer Nationals event can be used with fans being given an additional credit for the difference in price toward a future event.
Pit passes from the Summer Nationals event will NOT be honored this week. We will make future announcements as to how we will resolve the pit passes for those local teams that did not make the Summer Nationals A-Main.
