FRIDAY GOT RAINED OUT, SATURDAY THEY GOT THE A QUALIFYING RACE IN AND IT STARTED RAINING AGAIN, SUNDAY THEY CALLED IT AT 12:30, THE OFFICIALS DECIDED TO PAY THE A QUALIFIER FROM SATURDAY AS THE BIG A-MAIN AND EVERYBODY ELSE THAT STARTED A HEAT SATURDAY GOT 100 BUCKS FOR A NON QUALIFIER. SCOTTY BROWN #44 GOT THE WIN, DON'T REMEMBER WHOLE ORDER, EDDIE MARTIN CAME FROM 17TH TO 6TH. EVERYONE OUGHT TO KNOW THAT THE PEOPLE PUTTING ON THE RACE DID A GREAT JOB. EVEN THROUGH ALL THE RAIN AND GETTING ONLY ONE NIGHT OF PARTIAL RACING IN THEY PAID OUT THE FULL PURSES. ALL OF THEM. IN IMCA STOCK, SINCE THEY DIDN'T GET TO RUN A FEATURE, THEY TOOK THE PURSE AND DIVIDED IT 24 WAYS. BOMBERS FEATURE WAS LINED UP HOW THEY FINISHED THE HEATS, SO THEY PAID THEM BY STARTING ORDER, AND SPRINTS RAN THERE FEATURE SATURDAY. SO EVERYONE GOT PAID SOMETHING.

Sorry guys I had heard it was a 100% washout.I'm glad they did get some racing in before the rain.I think the way they did the payouts is fantastic.It really stinks to travel a long way to race & get rained out and get NO MONEY for your trouble.
MY HATS OFF TO THE PROMOTERS! It's good to hear that the racers did get something for their trouble.Maybe next time mother nature wont interfere.
