Dublin Motor Speedway was hoping to have at least one more race this season. Hurricane Matthew had other plans for the 4/10ths-mile dirt oval.

Flooding and damage caused by the storm that dumped more than a foot of rain Saturday, Oct. 8, in many parts of Bladen County left the racing facility with erosion, rutted roads and a place that looked like a mud bog.

The speedway announced Thursday it is ending its 2016 season. Final points standings will be released soon and an awards ceremony will be planned.

The track will open its 2017 season in March.
