MALTA, N.Y. — July 8, 2014 — Inclement weather at the track has forced the postponement of Tuesday’s Super DIRTcar Big-Block Modified Series 100-lap feature race at Albany-Saratoga Speedway. The race has been rescheduled for Thursday, July 30.

Britten clocked the fastest lap in time trials at 16.244 seconds to claim the Pole Position Raceway / Bilstein Shocks Fast Qualifier award.

Polesitter Haers was still leading when cars were called off the track in lap 11. The race will resume from lap 11 on Thursday, July 30, with competitors starting in the same running order as when racing was delayed Tuesday, July 8.
