    DuQuoin, IL September 3, 2012-Seven inches of rain in three days from the remnants of Hurricane Isaac have led to the postponement of the 60th Federated-Southern Illinois 100 stock car race until Sunday, October 14. Continued rain today of a light nature led officials to conclude the event could not be run today (Labor Day).

    Not only was the race track unsuitable for competition but the infield and pit area were left unmanageable by the torrential downpours and then alack of sun and wind to dry the area.

    This marks the first time in history that a stock car race at DuQuoin has been postponed due to weather and the first time in the 64 year history of the "Magic Mile" than an entire auto racing weekend was lost due to weather. Sunday's Ted Horn 100 was rained out as well.

    Fans and media should continue to check with ARCA and Track Enterprises for further information on the schedule for the 60th Federated-Southern Illinois 100 now slated for October 14 at the DuQuoin State Fairgrounds.
