Camp Barnes Benefit event postponed to Wednesday

DELMAR – A century-mark heat wave and forecast for potential stormy weather has put a motor racing tradition at Delaware International Speedway on hold for one day.

The 43rd Annual Camp Barnes Benefit Stock Car Race, originally scheduled for Tuesday night, will be postponed until Wednesday June 24 due to the impending heat and potential for severe thunderstorms being forecast for Tuesday evening.

Gates on Wednesday will open at 4 p.m. at the Delaware International Speedway, with racing action beginning at 7 p.m.

This year’s event will feature competitors from all over the Mid-Atlantic region as well as several Delaware drivers.

They will compete for prize money over $35,000.  Big Block Modifieds, Super Late Models, TSS Modifieds, Crate Late Model, Modified Lites, Little Lincoln and Delmarva Chargers will compete in over 100 laps of feature racing in their respective classes.
