PEVELY, Mo. - March 24, 2011 - Mother Nature just simply won't cooperate with the DIRTcar Roundup, better known as the Party in Pevely. After moving the event to March 24-26 at I-55 Raceway as a kick off to the DIRTcar UMP Racing season, officials have decided today that the weather outlook, which includes everything from freezing temperatures and snow flurries to rain, won't allow the event to be run this weekend.
The event designed to give the weekly warriors in eight divisions of DIRTcar UMP Racing - an event that was a vision of UMP founder Bob Memmer - launched in October 2008. Since then, the event has been impacted negatively by weather conditions.
Officials will explore options to relaunch the Party in Pevely. For those with reserved pit spots, call the track at 636-479-3219.
The 2011 season at I-55 Raceway will begin Saturday, April 2, with DIRTcar UMP Late Models, DIRTcar UMP Modifieds, DIRTcar UMP Sportsman and DIRTcar UMP Pro 4 Stocks.For updates on the Party in Pevely, go to www.PartyInPevely.com or follow the Party in Pevely on Twitter atwww.twittter.com/DIRTcarRoundup.
