    Use your Favorite weather website…Track Zip code is 12195
    NOTE!…As of this Writing , site I like http://www.wunderground.com says this:
    I Use ‘hourly report:
    Sat- 30% ‘chance’ of rain 8am…thats 70% NO
    …….20% ‘Chance’ of Rain 11am….thats 80% NO
    after that -rest of day OK

    SUNDAY….0 % of rain.
    Don’t do what some did last year & stayed home cause it was raining at their house 1 or 2 hours away. DUH…ya missed it
    We had guys leave track on Sunday at the first Drop …It passed and 45 minutes later we ran the whole show off & were done at 5:30.
    Check our Facebook Page And This Topic…I’ll post regular updates through-out the weekend.

    Weather Update :
    Latest Has 70% of thunderstorm “Probabilty” through out Saturday…Sunday OK
    Now Just like Last year ….Nice …a quick storm…Here it comes …there it goes. Dry the Track And Run. My suggestion would be …if you’re worried about it but have the time…show up sat …get teched and get that over with …If the track’s ‘runnable’ you’ll be ahead of the game.SUNDAY should Be just fine. I’m sitting in the office NOW and will be monitoring the site through out the day And tonight.
    Heres Some :” Dino Travel” notes……

    OK gang at about 12:45 …A Storm came out of nowhere and we took a short break.Then another popped up …And To make a long story short we got drenched. Its Still raining but Radar says it”ll stop soon. The Amount of Rain would Take too long to Dry the Track let alone the Pits…Plus a lightning strike hit something in the timing system that is being repaired now. Howie then announced the Dirt track races are cancelled for tonight. Oh Well Great Weather Forcast for Tomorrow.Plenty of Cars Teched in ,Have run numerous times. I would suggest Getting here Early. Neto will have run off extra Rounds to make up for today and Some guys Decided to stay away today….Again …….Come early.

    IN the Pits Plenty of of just outragous Cars….Too numerous to mention. I’ll get some guys to post Photos.
