Todd -

I have my brother's gas blower in the truck if needed.

Let me know when you are heading to the track and I should be able to meet you there on Friday.

Well the rain has passed and the sun is coming out at the track. There are only a few puddles and we have guys out there now getting them off. I will be at the track later this afternoon to try to help finish things up. Looks like things will be good to go for tomorrow. I know of several out of towners coming. Also Tallahassee track had to cancel so we might see a few of their guys come over. We also have Marc Beck(Flowood track builder) and Justin Cranford heading out. Should be the best turnout we've had in a while. Hope to see everyone there tomorrow. Remember that Registration starts at 12 and racing at 1.

Todd and Gordon have been working on getting the water off the track for the last couple hours. They basically got the standing water off but the track is still very saturated. It is hard to say. The forecast says that it is supposed to be sunny all day tomorrow. For the out of towers sake I would say we need to cancel the race. I would hate for them to make the trip all the way here and it still be really wet. If people still want to race we can push the race back an hour or two if the track is not dry enough to run by 1. The only problem we are facing is Easter Sunday. Everyone voice your opinion and we will try to make the decision at 7:30 pm tonight. I will get Todd to post some pictures for you guys.

I just don't see how the track is going to dry out. The clouds aren't supposed to lift until tomorrow morning. That'll leave like 4-5 hours max for it to dry. With people supposed to be coming from it off town, I just don't think it'd be doable...
