It was a bummer for us at SMS. We had a huge crowd and the storms rolled in as hot laps were starting. One storm cell after another kept popping up behind the others. It was still raining when I left around 9:30ish. I hope we can get a decent date and most of the fans can make it back. I don't know if I've ever been 0 for 2 on a race weekend.Big Lucas show at Smoky Mountain completely washed out last night and tonight. Summer Nationals also rained out for tonight. Meanwhile, the WoO late models are racing for $20,000 to win in Jackson, MN, and only 16 cars showed up. Weird night.
That was arguably even better tonight. Feel like this is stone of the best racing the series has gotten to do this year with all of the rainouts and sketchy track conditions.
I was pulling for Weiss and RTJ, but Erb did a good job holding them off. Funny how Terbo still has the #46 on the roof panel from the Days of Thunder scheme.
Interesting how Davenport doesn't look so strong suddenly, and McCreadie as well.
Really hoping I can attend Saturday at this point.
There is a team near me that runs a Rocket and they have parked it in favor of last year's car because they have had no speed in the new one. Rocket is either out to lunch or they've inadvertently turned out some bad chassis.
I-80 says it's not trueLooks like it's basically official now. What a shame for late model racing and Midwest racing in general. One more season and one more big Silver Dollar Nationals with a big bonus structure in place to try to draw even more drivers.
Talked to someone who knows the owner and he will be selling after the 2022 season.
