... and 95% of them go back in the hauler looking the same way they came out of the hauler! Practice is just a couple nights away, THIS THURSDAY, 7 to 10pm.

Here we are 2 days away from another scheduled Pelican and it's time for the dreaded weather talk... 

Short version: Be here Thursday AND FRIDAY nights! There will NOT be enough 'showers' to rain it out this time. You may hear or read some forecasts or comments that make it sound worse than it is but it ain't at all so don't buy what they're selling this time. 99% chance of getting practice in tomorrow and 90% of getting The Pelican IN Friday night as scheduled! 

That translates into... YOU GOTTA BE HERE FOR THIS ONE!. 

Very slight chances of showers after midnight Thursday and before noon Friday. Total expected is less than a tenth of an inch. Grounds are dusty right now. Track is in great shape and of course watered and will be fine for Thursday's practice. 

Friday afternoon will be partly sunny with southerly breezes and high temp of 75! Regardless of what falls in the morning, the water truck will be busy and we'll have another AWESOME TRACK SURFACE for THE PELICAN FRIDAY NIGHT!!! 

Next chances of rain sit at 40% and happen well after midnight Friday and really closer to sunrise Saturday than anything else. Even then only 1/4 inch max. 

The record here to date has been if we get everybody down here and start a big show, WE FINISH IT. Drivers get paid & the fans see A RACE! 

There is no reason weather-wise that I can see today for anyone who would come otherwise to change their mind and not to be here THURSDAY AND FRIDAY!!!
