We drove out today, drove the entire course area, and took some pictures.
I posted them at https://www.facebook.com/PotterBrosRacing.

Thanks a lot for posting these! I can see where a short course could work, but that long course looks shaky at best. Overall, the salt looks pretty damp. End of the paved doesn't look good at all. Radar showed rain over the salt this morning, but you can't ever tell if it really hit the ground. These pictures are worth a thousand words of speculation; thanks again!

Here is a fairly accurate record of what happens at the local airport;
admittedly about 10 miles from the track.
If the rain covers the mountains there is still a bunch of water that collects on the flats.
.01" can add up to a full inch of standing water that can take days to evaporate.

  Your way off on your calculation .01 would hardly dampen the ground. BS

At the last BUB event in '13 I was all packed up on Wednesday PM and felt the first drop of rain as I climbed into my van. It was raining hard within a minute and the water started to 'pond' on the salt within 3 or 4 minutes.  By the time I reached the 'creek' about 2/3-rds of the distance from the pits to the end-of-the-road, it was flowing 3 or more inches deep and about 3-feet wide shocked  Another 2 minutes and I was on pavement and the rain had stopped.  The run-off from the mountains continued and flooded the entire flats with 2 or more inches of water that stayed for weeks.

Maybe we should install a storm-water retention pond at the edge of the mountains rolleyes
