We arrive at the beginning of the home stretch for the Nuclear Series. The double points event two weeks ago has scrambled up the points, but there is still time for things to change. The home stretch to a Nuclear Series Champion starts this Sunday. Our event is presented by Jupiter Motorsports. Jupiter will be trackside with the racer support rig.
Thunderstorms overnight and more rain this morning - no practice today. It does look like the rain is done early today and not much chance for tonight and tomorrow - Race is on!
3pm update: It has finally quit raining. We will check the forecast and track conditions again at 8pm. Look for an update then.
Evening update: No rain this afternoon. Track is wet but firming up. If we can keep the rain away conditions should good tomorrow. Our plan is to get out on the equipment early and scrape the soft spots and get the track shaped up for racing. That said, heavy rain tonight could throw a wrench into our plan. We will post a 6am update tomorrow morning and see what happens overnight.
Yeah, that did it. We just got a months worth of rain this weekend! Big t-storms this morning is too much to overcome. Race Cancelled - look for a rain date announcement later today.
So if you were racing with us last weekend, you know we had a bad day on Hilltop regarding track prep. I had a good plan, but we couldn't execute it. Without giving too many excuses, we had one of the wost days I can remember as a staff - including two fights and a heart attack. This didn't leave me time to get on a tractor and prep the Hilltop track. So this doesn't happen again, I have asked Danny Sanders to be the new Hilltop superintendant on race days. His only job will be to keep the track looking good. Danny has been helping us for a few years and has done a great job. I hope this will be a good answer to our challenges. Hope to see you next weekend for a better day of racing.
We have a big weekend coming up. Saturday we will have a groomed track practice 11am - 3pm. Hookit.com will be out to ride. Check them out on the web, and check them out in person Saturday. Sunday is the Barone Spinal Care Nuclear Series rounds 5/6. This is a double Nuke points weekend. Just like a normal race, but double the points. Our presenting sponsor is Open Air Powersports. This is a good weekend to make up some points in the series or expand your lead.
Just heard from Bob@ Open Air Powersports. He is bringing out a 2012 KX450 with the new launch control feature. We think it is the first one in the midwest. You can check it out at Motosports Park this weekend!
Barone Spinal Care is bringing out the full crew this Sunday! Just got this note from Doc: Aaron – Barone Spinal Care & Performance will have myself and two fitness experts there tomorrow, all day, with a concept 2 rower, spin bike, stretching tables and Semg equipment (measures muscular balance on computer) We will be warming people up, stretching them out and performing $60 Semg scans at no charge. It will be awesome!!! We will have flyers at the gate as well.
