Regular Season Opener on March 2
Canceled Due to Recent Rains...
going up to the track and looking at the weather reports for this
weekend, I have decided to cancel this weekend's races scheduled
for Saturday, March 2. With the recent rain and the threat of more
coming later this week, the ground is saturated and any more rain
will only stand in the track. We have lots of work to do in the
coming weeks to undo what the recent rains have done, but we will
be working hard so we can to get ready for racing this season! Thanks
for your understanding!!
