THE JANUARY 20TH SCHEDULED RACE HAS BEEN CANCELLED… BUT… THE TRACK WILL BE OPEN ON SATURDAY FOR TESTING.
Mother nature wins again. The crew has managed to lay down about 4 inches of ice but the melt we experienced just before this cold spell put hot spots in the ground that are causing problems. Justin is going to take advantage of the cold temps and continue to build ice but at this time we don’t feel there is time to build enough to hold a safe race by Saturday. We also can’t guarantee that the soft spots can be controlled well enough to guarantee they will hold up. We do have the making of a track however, and would like to offer it up for a testing surface. The trouble spots are on the outer perimeter and can be avoided. We expect to have about 6 inches of good ice to be used for testing. To recoup some of the money invested we are asking for $25 per person at the gate and the signing of a waiver. Since we will not be conducting races there will not be an ambulance present . We will open the track from 10:00am to 3:00pm and are planning on running it just like hot laps. Cancelling was an extremely hard decision. This is the best we could do at this point. We know that a lot of you have not had any seat time so we are hoping this is beneficial. Please don’t show up at the track before 8:30. We hope to see you there.
