I was thinking of Sunday as a backup plan if Wednesday doesn't clear up.

So far I can make Wednesday night if it's decent out.

They usually have an air pump near the staging lanes. I'm hoping to get there around 5:30'ish. I don't think they start truly running until 6:00'ish from what I remember.

Unfortunately I am not a lady so guess I have to fork over $35 for 3hrs of racing. That sucks. They jacked up the price and took away time. They better prep that shit good!

$35 is worth it, you can get a ton of runs in over three hours there

It was nice meeting you. It seemed to have been a night of waiting. I only got three runs in while the track was down most of the night.

I'm going to see if I can get in one more this year since I can't end the year on such a down note.

I hope all is well.
