(Luxemburg, WI – August 28, 2009) – Persistent showers arrived late into the heat races, forcing officials to cancel the race program Friday night at the Luxemburg Speedway in Luxemburg.

The closest contest is for the title in the IMCA Northern Sport Mods where Travis VanStraten leads Eric Arneson by a single point. Eugene Gregorich (-14), Johnny Whitman (-19) and Tracy Wassenberg (-23) are all still mathematically alive in the chase.
In the IMCA Modifieds, Brian Mullen will carry his ten point advantage over Jared Siefert into the final night. Shawn Kilgore is 15 back, with Benji LaCrosse 24 points behind the leader.
Jesse Colwell holds a solid 23 point margin on Troy Muench in the IMCA Stock Cars, with his brother Jamie 30 back.
Chad Kaminski is in command of the IMCA Hobby Stocks, with a 32 point bulge over Marcus Moede.
Jeff Behm trails Jason Cornelius by 24 in the battle for the Sport 4 crown, with Ralph Liegeois, Jr 26 back.
