Lots of Maritime Drag Racers heading for Epping this weekend - so many that they even started a thread on the message board to prepare for their annual trek stateside. Problem is the U.S. Weather service forecast is not good at all.
Also this weekend is the Noonan Nationals at Miramichi Dragway Park and the Environment Canada forecast for Miramichi sucks.
Yesterday we lost a Test and Tune session at CB Dragway due to rain, last weekend it rained in PEI, the CFSC Shootout got rained out, Clarenville lost a couple of events and every track had a rain event of some kind. This season has been a total disaster for Drag Racing in the Maritimes. The best weather all season was the August ADRA event at CB Dragway(not one drop!) but the previous two events had rain delays.
The most rain plagued track has got to be MDP - Did they have even ONE event that wasn't either cancelled or shortened due to rain?
Greenfield had it's share as well as Raceway Park PEI. August had a record amount of rainfall and so far it has rained every day this month. Next weekend is the Season Finale at Cape Breton Dragway - I sure hope this trend does not continue.
