I would guess there's a lot of wet cars even with the rain stopped.

Good morning everyone, we get three rounds today all before the pros... that's if the rain stays away. They are prepping the track, and we should start at 9am with Stock first round. Weather forecast calls for rain today, so it will be another long day.

Here are FSS from yesterdays qualifying...

The rain is back, we got Stock first round and I believe one pair of Super Comp, and than light rain came in. Drying the track now, but lots of moisture in the air. I'm sure they will be starting with the pros once the track is ready.

Sorry for the lack of photos, but with low car counts and bad weather it was a tough week for the sportsman as most just stayed in the trailer. Next National for me will be Bristol.

Thanks Ken for all the photos and updates. I was just checking DRC and they said it was misting and there would be a re-run in Stock. Any info on why a re-run? Just curious, pretty rare for that to happen at a National event, correct????

So here we go again Ken! Your thread about improving our classes. I mentioned the way we get treated. So if you don’t get it by now, not sure what it will take. Stock only 1 hit and the last ones down the track in iffy conditions, first out the next morning for E1. Ridiculous!
What an experience for what we pay to get in and time away!

I do not know the reason for the re-run, but i have seen it happen before at national events.

Not sure what else they could have done with the weather conditions. I was the only really fast car for that late night qualifying. The super gas cars coming off the throttle stop I think would be more of an issue so they sent stock out last.

I don't know what to say, I have a much better experience at the divisions races, but winning a national is special. Nothing has changed over the years, so we can accept it or we just don't go. Its not what racers want to here, but there is not much we can do about it.

The thread was started to see if changes could be made. Will changes happen, I just don't know. Do I want to stop racing... no, so I deal with. Do I get pissed off at times... I sure do, but they are the only game in town.

Lot of racers on here from time to time wondering how NHRA would fund their Natl event extravaganza s without our entry fees. With fuel prices being what they are,they might find out this year
