I did the WannaGoFast Monee event 2 years ago when there was a monsoon on Saturday. Was only able to get 3 passes in but was aware of the risk. Had a good time last year and signed up for both days again. If it rains all weekend, I'll been down in Champaign pickin up college chicks or taking the daily down the grass along the runway!

The concern from my end with spotty weather is the timing equipment.Hoping to be able to get slips out to people if it looks like we run between mother natures outbursts. I will make a note about the surface based on last year... the asphalt dried pretty quick. So if it pours in the AM, im hoping we could help dry it with some 50% speed parade laps like we did last year. Great effort by everyone to help!

I just want to make a quick comment about something. THIS (Midwest) event's profits are driven solely from the gate fees/spectators. Seriously. You can run the numbers on what that means as far as events costs. True, while that's not anyone's business (cue Kermit sipping tea by the window), I don't want to be pictured as the monocled Monopoly man that just told you "Do not pass go, do not collect $200".


We begin our team's travels from California today. Hope to see most/all of you this weekend!
Tony I wouldn't expect anything less than for you and your company to profit some. Why else would you be in business? to lose money? of course not! Keep doing what you're doing! As I said. Every time you come to town I'll be glad to throw money your way to be able to play! Those 50% parade laps were fun as fuck to! was hoping we'd do that again. My car is ready. hookin up the trailer tomorrow and loading up. hittin the couch for some chill and leavin early saturday to be parked out in front of the gate at 8am!!! see ya'll Saturday. IF ANYONE SEE'S AN ESCALADE PULLIN A CTSV ON A TRAILER.. THATS ME! BEEP AND SAY HI!

Posting up..... is anyone still going tomorrow? Shibby and I would like to know. Basically it looks like its only going to rain for the exact time the event is going on, so basically mother nature says no to this event.

We are both seriously considering just staying home. Thats a lot of work to bring out 2 trucks, 2 trailers, tools, and families just to sit there all day long.

Honestly im pretty pissed off.

We're heading out tonight. Rain or shine. I'm sure we can find ways of getting into trouble over the weekend.

Its not that I don't want to have fun and try to look for things to do.... but we have both already wasted enough money on this. Just not sure if I want to waste more money on race fuel along with the massive tanks the trucks have towing the cars.

If we would be allowed to run a little Sunday if Saturday is totally rained out then I would consider coming but that wont happen

I mean to play devils advocate, no one forced you to buy more parts for the car, especially nitrous.

I see you kind of losing your shit on FB and while ya, rain sucks, money is spent, etc....no one put a gun to your head and said "spend all this money".

This is all part of the hobby we chose. Hell, I spent a good chunk of change getting my car ready and I aint complaining (it would have had to be done sooner or later anyway).

Then just choose to not go. Watch the weather and if things look like they'll clear up, then load up and come out

The option for the trailer is only for tonight as my father and mother in law leave tonight for their lake house in Loda, IL. Either we go tonight or do not go at all.

It is, but I do not want to in case I break something. Also I do not want to drive there 2 hours on expensive race gas. I would rather have a way to get the car home already there rather than scrambling if something breaks.

Just because there is a good chance of rain doesn't mean it will rain during the entire event. It might not rain at all or just a little. I would kick my own ass if I decided to whine about the weather forecast and then sat at home only to have it not rain or rain a little.

Except it's approaching 100 percent chance and 95 during the entire event hour wise
