I know they pumped the water out again yesterday. The ground has been pretty saturated, so hopefully with the sun shining, it will be drivable. Give Mike a call tomorrow for an update.

Default GRRS Round #1 rescheduled March 06

Round #1 of the Grass Roots Series (@Thunder Alley Raceway) has been rescheduled for March 6th due to the up coming storm due in this weekend. Round #2 here at HCR will remain unless mother nature has other plans. 

We will do our best to reschedule early, so you may make other plans, and not have to wait. We know how that is, to wait to find out a race is canceled due to weather. We hope you can still attend.

HCR

Cool Question?

How many throughout races do we get in this series? It looks like a lot of fun!

Thanks,

Jeremy

Here is some more detailed info-

TQ= -1
1= 0
2= 2
3= 3
DNS= 100

Fingers are crossed that the rain stays away this weekend, so we can launch round#1 of the GRRS @ Thunder Alley!! It looks like the rain may hold off an extra day.

My plan is to go up in the morning. Weather.com shows rain may start at 1 pm.

I am dying to get some racing in.

yup! a great time yesterday. 60+ entries. not too bad for such a bad weather forecast. Hopefully round #2 will have a better forecast, and get some more entries in all the classes.
T/A did a great job as always, and really looking forward to the next one at HCR!

Had a good time at TA for the series rd. 1. Was great to get some wheel time for sure. Bummed that the last main rained out. Happy though that we got in as much as we did before the rain.

A little dis-appointed with lack of turnmarshalls. Seems to be a trend lately. Even at the Nitro Challenge, the marshalls weren't showing up to the track. Had to constantly ask for volunteers. Make the program drag on.
