Big Block Bash Canceled Edit: SEE NEW BASH DATE

!!!BASH IS STILL ON SEE CURRENT INFORMATION!!!

DUE TO ALL THE RAIN WE HAVE HAD IN THE LAST FEW WEEKS AND THIS PAST WEEKEND OUR PIT AREA IS REALLY WET. I HAD 130 TON OF ROCK PUT DOWN TO HELP US WITH PITTING FOR THE 3 BIGGEST RACES OF THE YEAR. THIS PAST WEEKEND WE HAD A LARGE JR ONLY RACE FRIDAY RAIN CAME AND NOW MY PITS ARE DESTROYED AND THERE IS NO WAY I CAN GET DRY ENOUGH IF WE HAVE ANY RAIN. THE BOTTOM LINE IS IF WE GET ANY RAIN I DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH DRY PARKING AREA. RAIN IS IN THE FORECAST AND I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE WISE TO RESCHEDULE THIS RACE INSTEAD OF EVERYBODY SPENDING ALOT OF MONEY TO COME AND NOT GET THE RACE IN. SORRY THAT IT WAS POSTED ON THE WEBSITE BEFORE I HAD A CHANCE TO LET YOU GUYS KNOW. IT HAS BEEN A HARD DECISION AND LEM AND I HAVE BEEN DISCUSSING IT ALL DAY. WE WILL RESCHEDULE SOON AND GET THIS RACE OFF IN GREAT WEATHER SO ALL CAN ENJOY.

THANKS PHILLIP

Phillip,

Good call........ Thanks for giving us a heads up , and I know it was a hard call to make , but it was the right call in my book. I just hate that you put all the hard work in getting everything scheduled and now have to start all over. I hope everyone realizes what it takes to pull this deal off. I think everyone will understand.

Thank you again for what you have done ,and if you need help call me on the next one, I will donate some time , I am not but a couple of hours away.

Thanks for the heads up Phillip. Man I'm glad I stayed up for awhile. I was able to call my Dad's house and tell him to turn off the alarm clock. He wasn't feeling very well, so I think he was relieved a little. I won't be able to make any rescheduled date, but I'll post a timeslip from Wednesday night at Raceway Park. I hope those new Cal-trac bars get me in the 11's.

bruno, Damon is racing this Saturday. He invited me and my boy to come on down to KY and stay with him then go racing Saturday.

I don't know yet if i'm going to do it. I'm still in a state of shock from the announcement that the bash is cancelled!

The good news is, if the new date is in Aug or after I will have my car! The bad part about that is , all the guys with running cars will be broke down by then...

Some of us can't re-schedule for another date our vacation is all-ready set for the year, what about the money we all-ready paid? What about our T-shirts?

THIS SUCKS!!!!!

Phil, Damon and everyone who work hard to put this together.

EVERYONE is disappointed that the race has to be postponed but I'm sure everyone thanks all of you for your efforts in putting this together and Mother Nature is the only one EVERYBODY is mad at!!!

Hope we can make this happen later in the year?

:roll:

Any day drag racing is a GOOD day.
