Rain, rain and more rain.
Saturday’s Bunny Hop 150 at Caraway Speedway for the NASCAR WHELEN Southern Modified Tour was cancelled after overnight and continuous showers continued to pulverize the racing surface.
This marks the second time this season that rain has forced competition to be suspended, an ironically, both rainouts occurred at Caraway.
“I’m just frustrated that it got rained out,” David Calabrese explained to On Pit Road. “But, what can you do, we don’t have control over Mother Nature.”
Calabrese, who finished third at Langley Speedway; his career-best NWSMT placing, was expecting a successful weekend.
“I felt we had a car to win today, possibly,” Calabrese further expressed.
NASCAR officials also have confirmed that the race won’t be rescheduled for tomorrow, despite the forecast appearing to be clear.
“I’m not mad they didn’t reschedule for tomorrow,” Calabrese further commented. “They (probably) didn’t reschedule for tomorrow because Caraway has really bad weepers, so we would be dealing with wet spots on the track all day.”
Calabrese and the rest of the Modified competitors now turn their attention the next event on the calendar, and again, it’s at Caraway on Independence Day weekend. However, it’s likely we’ll have one, if not both, makeup races before that race.
