2015 Fastlane Summer Showdown POSTPONED

2015 Fastlane Summer Showdown POSTPONED

Well it looks like we are going to have to re-schedule a trophy race for the first time since we built the outdoor offroad track in 2012. We've had a run of good luck until now but Spencer and I agree there is no way we're going to take the track and have it suitable for a trophy race this Saturday (even if we skip Friday practice). So I am very reluctantly postponing the event.

No one wants to run this race more than I do ( I have bills to pay ) but even if we get no more rain today it would be mid-day tomorrow at the earliest before we could get any kind of equipment on the track to finish the build. And, even in that best case scenario, it would probably be mid-day Saturday before we could run on the track. More importantly, the forecast (even Accuweather if you look close) is forecasting a greater than 50% probability of thunderstorms over night and some time tomorrow. I'd rate the chances of being able to run a show on Saturday with 3 Q's and Mains at less than 20%.
We will announce a new date for the event as soon as possible. It's going to be tough to find anything soon that doesn't conflict with events or points series at other tracks nearby. But we will try to avoid these other events if at all possible.

We appreciate the offers of help from racers, the kind words about our efforts and the interest from folks in this event. Weather permitting, we will be working on the track tomorrow afternoon (today is a washout). We will get it in race shape as soon as Mother Nature gives us a break.

We will revert to our normal club race program for this Saturday with racing starting at 4:30 PM and hope to see quite a few more racers there than we had last night. Still have those bills to pay (LOL).
