BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – The NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series event at Beech Bend Raceway Park has been called off because of continued rain. Eliminations for the event that was originally scheduled August 26-28, will resume September 29 at the division’s next scheduled race at National Trail Raceway in Columbus, Ohio.

Eliminations were slated to run on Sunday and had to be rescheduled for today due to rain. However, according to NHRA North Central Division Director Jay Hulling, while officials were working at getting the track dried for competition the rain started again. “We were just about 45 minutes away from being ready to run when it started to rain and, unfortunately, the forecast doesn’t look good for today or the next couple of days,” said Hullinger. “The weather just did not cooperate with us this weekend.”
