Waking up to the sound of rain stinks.

Default Rain

Talked to Humpty on Wed about the rain impact. The track should drain to just beneath the driver's stand and be easier to pump out.
I am not sure about weekend racing but the clearing forecast should be fine for the Cactus Classic. Here's hoping.

That will be great if it is easily drainable. I'm really hoping the rain doesn't destroy the hard work everyone put in.

I think that's for the best. Let the track recover from yet another rainy day here in Seattle, errr, Scottsdale.

My Dad just stopped by the track; big thanks to Mike Beaver who's out there in the weather right now pumping the track and keeping it under control. There is very little standing water out there and the track looks fine. Great job Mike!

Looking to the Southeast fromr North Central Phoenix today it was BLACK. I hope the track fares off the weather well.

I have been racing at SRS for 17 years and I have to say this is one of the best, if not THE best track I have seen there IMO. Sorry I can't race the Cactus this year but looking forward to the next few months on this layout.

To Mike and others helping:

Thank you all for keeping a very good track in condition to race the Cactus Classic. I realize it is tough work, thanks.

You guys need to petition for the "old dudes" class to be revived.

Everybody is going to be running a low-tread type of tire. I am using Jcocepts barcodes in orange compound. I also bought some in white compound. Plan on buying a TON of tires; mod class will be one run tires. On the other note I just got all 32 pairs glued up and ready to go! Practice starts tommorow!
