Rain Postpones Showdown with Brown for Two Weeks

August 7, 2016 -- Steve Torrence raced into the final round of the 29th annual ProtecttheHarvest.com Nationals Sunday before rain suspended competition at Pacific Raceways and postponed his showdown with two-time and reigning series champion Antron Brown to another site on another date.
All of the final rounds in the season’s 16th event will be completed in conjunction with later events.  The three pro finals, including that between Torrence and Brown, will be contested in conjunction with the 35th annual Lucas Oil Nationals at Brainerd, Minn., August 19-21.
Torrence beat Scott Palmer in Sunday’s first round, avenged last week’s loss to Richie Crampton in round two and dispatched J.R. Todd in the semifinals to reach the money round for the fifth time this season.  He is 2-2 in previous finals with wins at Pomona, Calif., and Englishtown, N.J. 

“It’s pretty disappointing not to get this thing run today,” Torrence said, “but no matter when or where we finally run it, we’ve got a team and a hot rod that can win it.”
