Ron, I think you need to offer jump seat rides in Speed Demon for the big donors, that would get the checkbooks to open up.

Salt conditions are being sent to me from Scott daily now and will be posted daily on the SCTA Facebook page, starting today.

FYI weather service reporting 60% chance of rain today near Wendover but so far the radar shows nothing in the area.
For those not familiar with it there is a web cam near the port of entry station (unfortunately looking toward town) which shows  a few showers in the mountains to the west of Wendover but dry roads right now.

Here we are in SLC - and it's raining.  Pouring a little while ago while we were eating, but medium heavy sprinkles right now.  The forecast for the salt sure looks ominous but the radar out there (from SLC but that's beside the point) shows the rain in most every direction - but not on the salt itself,  Nothing new as of just now on the SCTA website since 8 this morning's post.

We'll head out there tomorrow by noon or so.  Let me know if you find out anything more informative than this.  Thanks.

A heavy thundershower went thru hotrod's webcam link (above) at 18:00 & 18:10.  Radar showed much heavier precip to the east.  The airport got a (daily) record rainfall of .27" in approx. 15 minutes at that time.

I guess we'll have to wait for official word.

Jon,

Please do not park right next to the WGB. We need another 20' for a team member.

Thanks,

Okey-dokey, Dan.  I'll stay kinda near -- we like the neighborhood if not the neighbors evil  

Nothing new other than the forecast doesn't look too promising.  Nothing fresh on the SCTA website.  It's cloudy here in SLC.  We'll head out there later -- probably arriving mid-day.  Let us know if you find out anything -- as I'm sure any of us will do.

There's a new FB post saying there were sprinkles on the course - but not much and no real rain.  Wet around Land's End, but don't turn around and go home.  Scott Andrews says (on FB) that we'll be racing on Saturday.  if it'll open -- take a look at the second entry:  https://www.facebook.com/SCTASouthernCaliforniaTimingAssociation

We're here, we're here!  Our same as always room at the Quality Inn in the megalopolis of Wendover!  But - on the way into town we were listening to Jim Jensen and Freddie Dannenfelzer in their drag trucks, and Russ Eyres, too.  From what we could hear, there are some (few) spots where it's pretty wet.  Wet enough, that is, to make dragging not worth the trouble at this time,  Jim told Fred that all he (Fred) was moving during one pass was water.  But on the way better side, both of them were making comments like "We might as well quit -- it won't get any better than this."  They were busy dragging turnouts.  As is common, farther down the courses it's wetter.  The only one for sure (that is, the mentioned the location) was a god way down course #3.

We didn't go onto the salt - turned around at Land's End.  We could see puddles all over the place, yes - but the access sure enough is much better - built up and dry, dry.  After that it looked okay, but I couldn't see for myself.  We'll probably go out there later and drop the trailer and then I'll give you a more detailed report.

But as of now, I say again:  "Don't turn around!".  I'll amend this post in a few minutes.

Did the track get as much rain as the weather radar suggested last night? Sad
