The hour by hour forecast I have been watching is calling for rain around 3:00 p.m. I think you might want to consider 2 heats and a main to ensure you can get the race in.

We will play the weather by ear and do the best we can. Everyone here has been working hard to prep the facility for our first big race. I can't waite so see how it turns out.

Note:

We have some pit tables out and under EZ ups, if you want a good pit with a table you should try to get here early.

Brent,

I just finished updating a section of driver's stand in an attempt to make you feel at home. Hope to see you in the morning.

Default weather

Tomorrow: Cloudy skies with periods of rain later in the day. High 66F. Winds SE at 10 to 15 mph. Chance of rain 80%.

Tomorrow night: Showers and thundershowers during the evening will give way to steady rain overnight. Low 56F. Winds SE at 5 to 10 mph. Chance of rain 90%. 1 to 2 inches of rain expected. Locally heavier rainfall possible.

Sunday: Chance of a shower or two during the morning, followed by partly cloudy skies in the afternoon. High 73F. Winds WSW at 5 to 10 mph. Chance of rain 30%.

looks like it should be ok, I agree about running 2 heats,if not, maybe a rain delay till sunday?

I honestly think this weather issue is because Team Altoona is attending! Every damn time we travel East it rains. Poor Ed couldn't even get in a quality practice at Richfield earlier this year!

I think well be ok though, the report on my phone says 50% chance of late afternoon showers! I'm ready to race..............and EAT!!!!!!

Kevin and the crew,

Thanks for a great day even though we could not beat the showers. If you didn't make it today, they have rescheduled for the 17th. This is a track that everyone should check out, they really know how to put on a show. Thanks for the pics Bruce.

Awesome track, people and facillity!! I will try to make it back for the rescheduled date. May be late but I should be their.. If anyone has not been to this track don't hesitate you will not be disapointed. It is 100% first class all the way. from the track setup/flow, drivers stand, pit areas, and food!! I can't wait to come back. Maybe just maybe I will be in another class as well.

Kevin I'm giving my wife your number so you can explain why I need another car!!!LOL

Thanks for the day

Jeff Cisney
