During the March 4, 2001 Formula USA race day at Daytona, the GPRA/F-USA 125cc Grand Prix race was started three times and red-flagged three times. The race was then postponed until the end of the day's racing program, to be run if there was enough time. But there wasn't enough time due to a lack of daylight.<BR><BR>In a phone call to Roadracing World, GPRA President Chris Wallace made it official that the 125cc at Daytona was canceled due to darkness, with no points or purse awarded. Wallace said that he is working on a make-up race date and will announce that date as soon as he has it.<BR><BR>Wallace added that the make-up race will only be open to racers who were physically present on the grid for the first start of the Daytona GPRA 125cc Grand Prix race. Wallace said that he could've put the make-up race at the next GPRA round to be held in conjunction with CCS at Road America in April but felt that venue wouldn't be fair to everyone due to its distance from Florida.<BR>
