    GREENVILLE, MS - The $5,000-to-win 3rd Annual Rumble On The Gumbo 75 for the NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series Touring Division at Greenville Speedway in Greenville, MS scheduled for Friday and Saturday nights has been postponed due to heavy rains. Series and tracks officials are currently looking for a suitable weekend to reschedule the two-day event.

    Thursday morning severe thunderstorms with hail that left dumped 2.5 inches of rain on the track leaving the ¼-mile gumbo clay racing surface and the pit area with standing water. Track officials determined there was no way the area would dry out enough to prepare the facility for proper racing conditions.

    The next two events on the NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series Touring Division schedule will be at Albany Motor Speedway in Albany, GA on April 27 and 28. The April 27 race will be a $2,000-to-win 40 lap event, and the race on April 28 will be a $2,500-to-win 50-lap event on the Albany Motor Speedway ¼-mile clay oval.

    The races will mark the first-ever visit for the NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series Touring Division to Albany Motor Speedway and Rounds 4 and 5 of the 2012 run for the $20,000 NeSmith Cup Championship.
