Wet Woodburn

Where do I start. Woodburn Dragstrip was the next race on the agenda. The weather forecast did not look good and I guess the racers believed the weatherman.

Five racers signed up for Saturday’s race. Bill Gee, Jess Dale, Todd Sims, Gary Ericksen, and Duane Moore. After qualifying was over, Jess Dale was on top of the pile. Thanks to Snap-On Tools for the #1 qualifier award. Race sponsor was Loftis Racing.

First round found Gee matched with Moore. Moore got to excited and turned on the red light to give Gee the win.  Ericksen ran closer to the dial to beat Sims and Dale got the bye.

Round two was called, the racers pulled into the lanes, then it rained, and rained, and rained, and the wind blew, and there was lightning. So, the race for us was cancelled and the three racers split the purse and will get second round points.

Sunday dawned wet and cold. After a discussion and a delay in starting, it was decided by the racers to cancel the Super Street race and the racers will get attendance points.  The race sponsor, Roberts Floor Covering, will carry over to the next race at Woodburn.

Next race is Renegade Raceway on May 25 and 26.
