The weather Saturday for the Rockett Brand Fuels ET Bracket race 1 was supposed to be bad with rain starting at 9:00 a.m. and continuing off and on all day. I did not expect to get the event in. Mother Nature was very nice to us and the whole event was completed. It started to rain just as the last car turned off the track. However the wind was really blowing with gusts up to 25 knots. There was a hold in the morning until the track temperature was sufficient for grip and due to the wind, the race distance was limited to 1/8 mile. The racing was very good with an emphasis on getting a hole shot because of the shortened distance. It may have been my imagination, but there seemed to be an inordinate number of red lighting, maybe because of the 1/8 mile distance. Congratulations to all the winners!

This morning my phone starting buzzing at 6:00 a.m. My first reaction was, who is contacting me this early in the morning?! When I checked my email all was forgiven because it was the documentation for our credentials for the INDY 500! Indy here we come!! I'm looking forward to getting back to the Brickyard for an event.
