Anticipation was high for Sunday's 27th Annual One-Hour Endurance Race for the Red Line Graphics Late Models but Mother Nature rained on the hopes of the racers and fans gathered at the Indianapolis Speedrome. Qualifying and heat races were run but only the Sunshine Cafe Roadrunners were able to finish a main event.
R.J. Norton, Jr., was well on his to securing his first Speedrome Red Line Graphics Late Model championships by setting fast time in preparation for the class' One-Hour Figure-8 Endurance Race. The resulting rains wiped out the effort and postponed the event to Saturday, September 13, after this week's World Championship Three Hour Figure-8 Endurance Race. Rodney Sizemore paced the four-lap Hutchison Signs Trophy Dash to start the evening.
Rain washed out the feature event for the Chuck's Race Car Parts Outlaw Stocks. Al Fullenkamp set fast time while Brian Luttrell and Ed Brickley claimed qualifying races before the rains came.
In the only feature race completed tonight it was Dustin Sapp winning in the rain over a charging Scott Tabor. Randy Hutchinson, Ricky Martin and Barry Coy rounded out the top five. Bill Hasson and Shawn Eastridge were tops in the qualifier.
The Speedrome Hornet division was on the track as the rains came down harder ending the evening. Josh Presley and Claude Hopper nailed the preliminaries.
