So what was the weather and track condition?
« on: May 07, 2017, 09:56:15 AM »
Since we (wisely IMO) cancelled the Spring event with the pitiful weekend weather report we had to look at, I would none the less love to know what the actual conditions were Friday / Saturday and are through today. That way I can either grimace in pain, or feel validated in having voting "no go" on Tuesday morning.  So what was (and is) it up theaya? :?

Friday had a shower just before noon. Probably could of ran a few hours after that dried on Friday. Saturday was total wash. Today the rain cleared and the pavement was dry at about noon but the winds are so bad right now it is hard to drive 55. It was the right call

I'm still bummed, but I guess that makes me feel a bit better. I just hate having missed this early date and the chance it gave us to sport out any issues well before Speed Week! Looks like it'll be July in Maine and then hope nothing big needs attention before August. :roll:
