Severe thunderstorms forced cancellation of the CCS Super Limited Series event at Orange County Speedway in Rougemont, NC, Saturday night, spoiling the 2012 debut of Tracie Bellerose and the #30 Rockingham Speedway/Fast Track High Performance Driving School Chevrolet.
After qualifying tenth for the event, the Godfather Motorsports team waited out a lengthy rain delay after heavy thunderstorms drenched the speedway.

The track was eventually dried, but a second round of heavy rain forced the event to be postponed. Double features will now be run at the CCS Limited Super “Labor Day Classic” at Caraway (NC) Speedway on September 1.
“We’re disappointed,” said Bellerose after the rainout. “We weren’t happy with our qualifying effort, but I was really interested to see what the car would do on a longer run. I felt like we could run the same lap times all night long, while most of the field fell off dramatically after just a few laps."

Crew chief Jim Gallison, Jr., said, “We’ve got some time before our next race to make some changes based on what we learned today. It was a long, 11-hour day, but we’ll chalk it up as an extended practice session and use it to come back stronger next time.
