Macon, IL (Sept, 8)-It is with deep regret that Bob Sargent and Track Enterprises announce that we will be unable to reschedule the 59th Ted Horn 100 at DuQuoin in 2009.


"Mother Nature was very kind to us three of the four dates we had scheduled at the Illinois and DuQuoin State Fairs but she really threw us for a loop on September 6 when 2 inches of rain fell that morning on the 'Magic Mile'at DuQuoin", said Track Enterprises CEO Bob Sargent. "We looked at every way possible to run the race on its original date but the damage to the track and the pit area was just too severe." "We then met with all the parties involved, USAC and the DuQuoin State Fair management and unfortunately we were unable to find an alternative date suitable for everyone."


"We really hoped to find an alternative date and we remain committed to bringing the best of USAC and ARCA racing to all three of the dirt miles that we promote", continued Sargent. 'I know our race fans will understand the factors involved in this decision and can look forward to the Ted Horn 100 in 2010."


This is the third time since 1948 a championship dirt car race at DuQuoin was not held due to a rain out, the first came in 1950 and the next in 1962, each time a suitable rain date could not be found.
