1:45 - For the last hour or so they have been parking rigs on the lower end of the track - several rows of them already there past the finish line .................

Well this is a first for me. I just pulled in and they parked me on the track. Here a few photos. Anywhere there is asphalt there are rigs. I parked at the end, and I heard they will park all rigs today. Hats off to NHRA for trying to make this race work for the sportsman.

Its muggy and cloudy, but no rain.

Jack, this thread is useless without pictures, will you get to work already.

Jack, does this mean those rigs "parked at the lower end of the track", are pitted there? ( or they are waiting to get pitted -like the ones on the track)?

Tom, from what I can see very few rigs are parked and no sportsman on the asphalt. We are just waiting on asphalt, track, staging lanes, entrance to the track and anywhere there is asphalt until they are ready to park us for the race in the fields.

NHRA posted they hope for one Q pass tomorrow and quickest qualifier wins stock classes...and sportsman racers can withdraw without penalty. They must not think the field is going to hold many rigs given the conditions.

I have to admit... I am now glad I couldn't make this one, even though it is 1 1/2 hours from home.
