    FORT DODGE, Iowa (July 16) – Due to excessive heat forecasted for this Tuesday and Wednesday, officials at the Mineral City Speedway in Fort Dodge, Iowa, have postponed the Great American Stock Car Shootout.

    “Weather forecasts are calling for temperatures approaching 100 degrees with very little wind both days,” said track manager Larry Flaws. “Who wants to work all day and then go sit in a sauna for several hours? In the best interest of our fans and the safety of our drivers, we feel this is an easy call.”

    The event is now slated for Monday and Tuesday, Aug. 20-21, and will still feature four big classes battling for big money on the historic half-mile oval.

    USRA Stock Cars and USRA B-Mods will pay $500 to win on Monday, Aug. 20, while Hobby Stocks will pay $300 to win. The payoff explodes on Tuesday, Aug. 21, where Stock Cars and B-Mods will race for $1,500 to win with Hobby Stocks battling for a $700 top prize.
