Good Morning Racers & Fans: It's day's like these that give us ulcers. Weather for today shows a very good chance for rain from 4-6 PM. We usually start First Round at 4 PM. So now we have to make the difficult call. If we're right, we're heroes! If we guess wrong, it's "you made a terrible call!"

But make the call we must. We've decided to err on the side of caution and rather than call you all here, take your money, and then probably endure 3 hours of rain in the early evening, we've decided to CANCEL RACES FOR TODAY.

So don't load up folks, we are NOT racing today. We hope to see everyone next weekend for Friday night Test & Tune and Saturday & Sunday Points Racing. And please ask Mother Nature to be kind to us!
