For those of you that can access Facebook here is a warning about fissures in the lakebed to avoid that was posted on the Friends of El Mirage page.

https://www.facebook.com/FriendsofElMirage/posts/1751187888308893?comment_id=1751199668307715&notif_id=1525895230321278&notif_t=comment_mention&ref=notif

Looks like there are some big fissures in the return road/north side spectator area.

I also read on the Friends of El Mirage FB page that a fire permit is now required.

Here is a map showing the crack locations, from the friends of El Mirage FB page

Comparing the map with the Google satellite view leads me to believe the cracks are on the return road side at the outer boundary cones opposite the timing stand.

Just got this E mail rom my son
"Hey Pop,
   I stopped by Elmo on my way back to Phoenix this afternoon.  The ruts are about even with the timing tower, hay bailed off on the East side of the lake bed. Indeed, East of the return road and are of no danger to racers. Drove down the course and it appears no better or worse than recent meets. Just an FYI in case anyone wants to know."

I checked out the lake bed over the weekend and I think it looks much, much better than it did last year.  The trenches won't affect us in any way unless some yahoo on a dirt bike manages to drive into them.
