It's pretty cold out. Hopefully the rain dries up fast. It's soaked out here at the hotel.

They said they would extend the event until 6:30 pm if the rain stops. So that's nice. Literally only 30-40 cars showed up when I was there at 10 am so even just 2 hours of racing would be good for 10+ passes

Rain never quit. I left but will be back tomorrow. Got shut down asking about "possibly" letting saturday people run tomorrow which I figured.

People might show tomorrow but I doubt a whole lot will.

Mother Nature can seriously suck a fat one. Literally rained the entire event time then finished at the end time.

Other than that I gotta give props to the no fly zone people, they even tried brining in a helicopter to dry the track at the end. But it was useless as it would stop raining and then proceed to heavy mist the rest of the night.

They selected me and a few others to make some test hits. I got to about 100 mph and I shut it down. I had the nitrous ready to go but by that point the mist became so heavy the runway was a lake again.

Props to the no fly zone people for trying.......... And fuck you Mother Nature you loser

Again though for those who were not there today or stayed home. Mad respect for the entire crew. They tried hard to get us time to run. They could have easily called off the day at 11 am the way stuff looked

Exhausted. Thanks for the support, and constructive criticism. I did what I could to salvage anything from the day. Here's hoping tomorrow goes ok.

hopefully we can return. In the meantime, see you tomorrow

Any Saturday attendee people still down there?

Happy to pass my entry on to one of you (assuming that's ok?)... Looking unlikely I'll make it today.

PM me
