The lakebed looks super but what a person could do is come to El Mirage clean up day May 7 then you will see for yourself.

   As far as what I was doing, we were checking the grip and stability of the surface at speed,(also the car). it seems to be PERFECT.   
   
  I ALSO SIDE WITH TINY,  EVERYONE NEEDS TO COME OUT TO THE LAKE FOR CLEANUP DAY ON MAY 7.   OUR SUPPORT IS MUCH NEEDED AND APPRECIATED.

The wind will be a factor
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.

Depends on the direction of the wind. 15 mph is max. I used to stop them at 10 mph with a direct cross wind. BTW 22 mph wind predicted for tomorrow.

Radar shows a large thunderstorm over the lake (4:30 PM PDT) right now. There was one at about 2:00 PM also. Is any of it getting to the ground Tiny?

I can't tell you what happening out there right now,but last night an hour or so before we did fireworks a real old fashioned gully washer moved through the area and here in Adelanto. Hope the BLM evacuated the lakebed of we might have had our racecourse destroyed yesterday  :-(
