On Saturday night needing a sixth place finish or better in his B-Main to make the $25,000-to-win Hoosier Dirt Shootout finale, Weiss took part in a quick attempt to complete the 12-lap consolation before the rain postponed it to Sunday afternoon. Continued rain overnight and on Sunday morning forced race officials to postpone the finale to a later date.
