I'm guessing about 4hrs at the most. plus by showing up the night before the car can get some rest before the first big day of the season if you get my drift.

Well I know the area pretty good my buddy lived by the track. There isn't a hotel that I know of in morroco and if there is a place to stay it's not going to be nice at all. This is hillbilly heaven where we r going to be and in the middle of no where. Good thing for me I'm only 45Mins-1 hour from the track.

Weather.com upped the chance of rain to 70% from 40%.  The forecast cant give any specific time though. If its going to rain Sunday night than we'll still be ok because racing ends at 4. But if it's going to rain all day...  :icon_frown:

Okay guys I found a Holiday Inn Rensselaer In so I have a decent hotel not too far away but I will be keeping a very close eye on the weather. The weather channel page dropped the precipitation to 60% for Sunday. My question to all that are planning on going if it rains do we still wanna hang out some where or just re-schedule for another weekend? I figure we should get the ball rolling on a plan B.

The thing about US41 is, even if its raining, they'll still be open and you can make a run as long as it's not raining at the moment. They've got a couple of blow dryers to dry the track after a rain.
Im waiting until tomorrows forecast to decide whether or not to cancel. Unfortunately, I have to give about two weeks of notice to get a day off. So if we do reschedule, it'll have to be at least two weeks.

So lets say, tentative reschedule date is April 11th. Good thing is, in April they are open between 11 and 4. So that gives us an extra hour of racing for the same price.

We'll see what tomorrows forcast says, hopefully it'll say rain on Sunday night. If it does we will still be on.

Looks like it's supposed to rain Monday thru Friday next week. Hopefully, that means a beautiful weekend to race!

Got some bad news. We just got back from the doctor who told us that Sarah could not breastfeed because of her epilepsy medicine. In order to breastfeed, my wife will be switching epilepsy medicines. This process takes about a week during which time she is subject to seizures.

I can't in good conscience leave her with a newborn and a 2yo for a day so I won't be attending this Sundays meet.
I do also have next Sunday the 18th off if anybody wants to put it off for a week. Of course you are still welcome to go without me!
Sorry guys.

Good luck man, but I'm still planning on going Sunday. I might be able to make another trip next week depending on what goes on. I'll keep in touch.
