August 25th…..4th Rain Out In 20182018August 25th…..4th Rain Out In 2018

What a disappointment to lose August 25th.   A night where both the Late Model, driven by David, and the Modified, driven by me, was cancelled due to yet another rain out.
That was the 4th rain out, and no chance to get them back.
The picture above is from 1986 in the Hobby club at Flamboro Speedway.  It rained all day but John Casale didn’t cancel, he waited till the rain stopped and knowing he would lose fans due to the severe rain (check the puddles in the pits) he waited and got it in, and allowed us to race.    John has always been like that.  He cancelled the show on August 25th because racers wanted him to cancel because it was raining everywhere, and they threatened they would not be coming,    John had no choice to cancel because they said they weren’t coming, and his fans wanted to see the Modified……guess what?…. it cleared up and we could have raced.   🙁
This weekend we will be racing again, David at Jukasa in the Short Track Nationals, a 200 lap race with over 60 very talented racers pre entered.  Meanwhile I will be with OSCAAR in the Modified at Sauble Speedway for a double header Saturday and Sunday.
The weather forecast looks bad at both tracks, I am praying we get to race at Sauble and David gets to race with all those travelling race teams at Jukasa, and I hope both tracks  get a full crowd and no rain.
I’ve lost too many races already this season due to rain and losing a bunch of shows at Varney because of no cars in the Modified shows Gord planned for us.  Are drivers committed anymore?
So I am seeking help from God, and praying for good weather for the tracks, fans and race teams.
