This is what we have - possibly HAD - planned for this weekend. One of our local tracks is - possibly WAS - having a special race weekend. (The season officially kicks off April 3. Yes, I know that's Easter weekend, but I'm not the promoter and have no say in those matters.)
Side note: The races are outdoors but the only fairly current photos I have of G1 and G2 racing are from the February World of Wheels races in Wichita Falls, TX.
G1 and G2 have their turf cars ready to race. G2 has his Pure Stock ready to go too.
This is the current 7 day forecast. Today is supposed to be a nice one. Tomorrow - not so nice.
Can you believe that on the FIRST DAY OF SPRING Northeast Oklahoma has a 90% chance of SNOW????
The official word reads:
"...Winter storm watch now in effect from Saturday morning through Sunday evening...
The National Weather Service in Tulsa has adjusted the timing of the Winter Storm Watch and it is now in effect from Saturday morning through Sunday Evening.
For the following counties...
*In Oklahoma...Washington...Osage...Nowata and Pawnee.
*Rain will change to sleet and snow across Northeast Oklahoma late tonight and Saturday. The snow will become heavy at times Saturday evening through Sunday morning.
*Snow accumulations of 4 to 8 inches will occur across much of the watch area...with locally higher amounts possible.
*Roads...bridges...and overpasses may become slick and hazardous in the watch area...making travel treacherous, power outages are possible.
*Consider changing travel plans. Make sure you have an adequate supply of food...water and the necessary medication to last through the duration of the winter storm."
There was a play day yesterday evening and AD went up to help where he could. He said there are already some big rigs that have pulled in for the event.
Daughter just called and said the promoters are at the track trying to come to a decision whether to postpone the race weekend or continue on and see what happens.
Time will tell.
What do you have planned for the weekend? Whatever it is - I hope snow doesn't have an impact on them!
