I'm registered for Saturday, it'll be decisions I have to make by Thursday as I have to cancel my hotel if I'm not participating. I'd rather be out $200 and not race because of the rain then $600 for hotel, gas and food to go down there for the weekend.

Honestly it is going to come down probably to the night before for a real good forecast. Right now Weather.com says 80% chance, weather bug says 50% chance, and accuweather has changed from 20% -80% back to 70%.

Its really up in the air at this point. Lets hope it storms during the week and gets it out of its system now.

If anyone is in need of e85, I was able to have someone off FB generously test the two stations in Champaign.

The Thorntons (101 S. Mattis Ave.) is testing at around 80/81 and the Schnuks (also on Mattis) down the street is testing at 86/87.

I appreciate this sort of attitude! I know you guys know we can't control the weather. And an event like this is difficult to get secured anyway, and impossible to simply reschedule.

We await the event weekend, and hope that it all works out so that there is a desire for us to return once again for you all!

Tony you guys better come back. Anyone living in the midwest should understand very well how the weather around here works. This weekend there is a chance of Snow, Rain/Thunderstorms, 100 degrees with 200% humidity as well as -10 windchill. And that's normal!

Will it suck if the rain fucks us? HELL YES IT WILL.. But any true car and racing enthusiast respects what you do for us and will support your event in the future.. SO YOU BETTER BE PLANNING A FALL EVENT!!!!

See ya Saturday morning!

Weather is actually looking better. Now it says only a chance of PM showers. And rain total is down from .45 inches to .13 accumulation. I'm hoping it keeps dropping and we are good to go for the day!

You better pray for zero rain. I guarantee that car won't make a pass if the ground is even slightly wet. That hp needs all the traction it can get

I appreciate it! The support is what we will need to make it happen again, just like anything. So lets see how the event goes and see how weather is on event day(s)!

See you guys soon

Shit, I don't know that anyone would make a pass with the runway even slightly wet. I definitely won't be!

definitely hoping we get some clearing during the weekend, or that the weather just bypasses the airport completely!

I'm out, selling my spot. If you know someone looking. Car is at ford and the trans is on back order. Don't feel like risking the truck due to the woman using it daily

Let's just hope the showers are spotty and the weather people are wrong. Just remember how many times this winter they predicted snow and we got nothing

Glad I didn't pay to sit around an airstrip watching it rain all weekend. They will be making a profit rain or shine

Such is life with racing. You pay to play and know that there is a chance you might not get to play!
