What To Do Now

Sun. April,17

Just received the e -mail from Quincy Raceways that tonights races have been canceled. Track officials determined that the pit area was just too wet, and although it may have been possible to work the track into racing shape, it would likely break down and negate all the good work that has been done early in the season. I can certainly understand, as we have had quite a bit of rain since Friday in the area, but with the sun shining and temps in the 60s, it is tough to take. The temptation is there to head for East Moline,Il., as the Deery Brothers race is still on, but Monday morning comes too early. So the weekend has been a complete washout race wise, as all of our Saturday night options fell victim to the inclement weather. Plan B will be to keep the NASCAR race on, grab the cell phone and start going over next weekends schedule. With Easter being next Sunday, we will probably be staying as close to home as possible, but a quick look at the calender offers up several attractive events. IMCA late model points start next week, and the Quincy Raceways - 34 Raceways combo point fund begins as well, with 34 showcasing 410 sprints along with the late models and IMCA stock cars on Saturday, while QR will have a regular 5 class program on Sunday. Many midwest tracks will be open by next weekend, so plan to support a track of your choice. If you see us racin' down the road, say " Hi!"
