Only track in FLA not running. Must have been some unbelievable, mega rain that only hit their area. Such a shame for those who travelled. Still don’t get why no double show tomorrow. They won’t give you your money back either. Usac starting the season in great fashion.

Evidently you are not here The track had already been watered it was pretty wet then it rained pretty good ,as noted in the post above arm bands are good for Friday and Saturday if you were here and couldnít make it Friday and Saturday you could probably ask them for a refund but from reading your post I donít think youíre even here . Letís go ahead and start bashing usac letís take them right to the whipping post and start letting them have it right now letís get it over with 🙄

Looks like when you seen the midget count last weekend and the spring turnout now they have drawn the lowest car counts for the tracks running series in florida again this winter. Maybe it is time the florida tracks do like Knoxville and Eldora have done better bring in another series that brings cars and fans so they have some support for the show.

Had the rain come BEFORE they watered the track for 45 minutes, they might have had a chance to get it worked in. They ran lots of vehicles on it for almost an hour after the first shower at about 6:30 local time, and they actually were getting it ironed in a little only to have another shower hit. Yes, it sucks, but the radar at 7:30 on my phone was ugly, with rain all around the track.

Unfortunately for me I canít make tomorrow or Saturday. So to be told my band is good for those shows doesnít matter. They never took a lap on the track. You should get ur money back no questions asked. Your comment about bashing and whipping posts tells me you have issues so Iíll wish you well and hope your able to enjoy yourself and not be so angry. Maybe you can chill in tomorrowís colder temps.

Your first post indicates you were not at the track or else you wouldíve realized that it wasnt a possibility to run last night. Then suddenly you were at the track based on your most recent post. Which one is it???

My notes from 2-13-2020...6:20pm left infield: 6:25pm 4 min. light shower with big drops, took cover: 6:45 to 6:56pm heavy rain with strong winds: 7:25pm another 5 min downpour, sure they will cancel. 7:33pm cancelled, bands good for either remaining night. Left track @ 8:00pm. Can't confirm but radar showed another rain shower over the track @ approxamately 8:45pm. Right call in my opinion by the track and USAC. Its FL, it can and will rain any time, any where. No winners. Just bad luck, I guess. Try again tonight!
