I don't know what we do now for this race, but we need to have some direction for the future. 5 points can make a difference in a tight race. I will go to the track on Friday as well.

5 points will be awarded if you go to the track property on Friday (day of the scheduled race). Here is the relevant rule, which is clear to me.

"- If a race is postponed and rescheduled for the next day or another weekend, 5 attendance points will still be awarded if your car is in line to enter the grounds of the race track for the scheduled rained out race, or you put your wheels on the track property on the day of the race. If a race is re-scheduled, a new first round ladder including all participants present at the makeup race will be drawn up."

Yes I believe we are good to go on the rule as you posted. My only question is how far back do we go? If they cancel a week before or 2 weeks before or....etc Good discussion for the banquet.

If a race is clearly cancelled with a reasonable amount of notice (whatever that is) awarding points for showing up anyway make no sense to me....not looking to take sides or help or hurt anyone....just doesnt seem fair....I suppose a rule with a set time frame for cancellation might be needed....

That sounds better than the 70% chance of showers all day that stupid MSN is showing.

I am going either way. I need an adventure 8)

Haha. I decided to drive the antelope-scarred 64 Dart down, and it doesn't have a heater either. We'll be in good company, Joe! I'll be leaving at 6 AM Sat morn... Car is ready to go.
