BJ Burkdoll just called and told me that WoS has been cancelled for 2013.

Check the USFRA website for further details.

USFRA website doesn't say anything about a cancellation.

It may take 'em a while to get the website updated to show the cancellation.

The word is getting out. It's a real bummer after all of the prep to make the event happen,

I think Rob gets the "long tow" disappointment award.

Treit's car just rolled out of the trailer back into the shop.

Steve M, Rampage, get's the travel time trophy.

Sure hurts when Mother Nature takes over.

I hope the Shoot Out survives.

I know we won't be there.

Anybody have picture of the conditions?

Well, it used to be Los Angeles . . . 50 miles north of Fresno now.
Just remember . . . It isn't life or death.
It's bigger than life or death! It's RACING.

I just talked with Mike Cook - about WoS and his event.  He says he had just talked with USFRA and they told him about the decision to cancel.  He offered them some of the days he's got the salt - if they wanted to just postpone for a day or two, but no - the event is cancelled.

Mike leaves SoCal this coming Sunday early early -- heading for Wendover.  He'll check out the situation and will make his decision based on what he sees then.  but until that -- the Top Speed Shootout is still "on".  Stay tuned for updates.

USFRA is doing a bang-up job of notifying people of the unfortunate fact of their cancellation.  I got an email a few minutes ago, it's on their site and their FB page, Mike Cook got a call, etc.

It's sad -- but the USFRA folks are doing their level best to let us all know asap.

Man that is tough.

It makes Freud's reference more important than ever, that you only have so many Speedweeks, WOS and World Finals in one life...so attend them all.

I hope to be in a position to attend them all for how many I have left in me.

Safe travels home to all that are turning around and heading home.

Real bummer for those headed that way. If any body needs a cold beer, hot meal, or would like to swing by and check out Hank, pm me.

Hope the weather holds out for World Finals.

Mother Nature always has her way. Water in particular always wins.

Growing up a mile or so from the Mississippi River in St Louis taught me that a long time ago.
