PORTSMOUTH, OH (September 5, 2011) – Officials of the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series and Portsmouth Raceway Park along with Hillbilly 100 promoter Carl Short have announced that the 2011 edition of the Hillbilly Hundred has been cancelled.   The 43rd Annual event was originally scheduled to be run on Sunday, September 4th but persistent afternoon rain showers forced the event to be postponed until Monday. Overnight rains along with a continued unfavorable forecast for more rain throughout the day on Monday has unfortunately forced officials to cancel the event for this year. A suitable make-up date could not be found to run the event.   “We hate this for the fans, drivers and everyone who came out to support the Hillbilly 100 this weekend,” said Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series Director, Ritchie Lewis. “Looking at our remaining schedule for 2011 and trying to work things out with Donna Rayburn and Carl Short we all agreed that there is not a weekend available that will work for all parties involved, so we have cancelled the race until 2012.”   For those that had bought advance tickets for the Hillbilly 100 you may send those in a self-addressed stamped envelope for a refund to: Portsmouth Raceway Park ATTN: Donna Rayburn at P.O.
