Why work when you can just cancel and collect your insurance money? Pinky is a lazy bum.

Which would be worse? Going or thinking of going to the races but finding out they are cancelled, or going to the track and having the event rained out after qualifying. After the qualifying events are over the race can be considered a complete show when and if the rain comes which means people paid the money but didn't get to see a feature. If the show cancelled early anyone who bought a ticket still can use their rain check at another race. Does anyone really knows who makes the decision to cancel, is it Kathy or Justin?
I'm not a big fan of the grove as I used to be but I am hoping to see some good Saturday night racing there tomorrow. :)

I drove from New Jersey and ran through quite a rainstorm about half way to the Grove and when we arrived at the Grove it was obvious they were cancelled as some puddles looked like swimming pools.

It would have taken quite a few hours to dry the track well enough to hold the racing.

Got back home in New Jersey and it had never rained here.

From the look of things at the track, they had no other choice except to call the program tonight.

Try not to knock the Grove too hard. I don't think they had any other choice.

Drive safe everyone.

They didn't pave the pits. They laid stuff down and rolled it. It's not blacktop

verb (used with object), paved, paving.


1.

to cover or lay (a road, walk, etc.) with concrete, stones, bricks, tiles, wood, or the like, so as to make a firm, level surface.

For all you wanna be track owners and whiners, get your info straight. There is no way they could have raced. I live two minutes from the track. At about 2:30PM until 3:10PM it rained. We had over and inch and a half of rain in that storm. About 4:15PM it rained again. In that storm, we had over an inch. The tunnel at the track had about two feet of water laying in it. The track was an absolute mess. It would have taken several hours after the second storm to get the track in racing shape. Considering all the conditions, it WAS the correct call whether you like it or not!! Before being so critical of someone, get all the facts straight, or better yet combine all your money together and buy the place. That way you can race whenever you want.
