smart move , back in 06 Nhra made us sit in the field for 3 days in the rain before they called the race . If there were 100 rigs out there , 80 had to be towed out including myself. There was mud everywhere.

That's the year Scotty Cannon was trying to figure out how to build a bridge across the ditch between the motorhome parking area by the sand pit and the road so he could get out without getting stuck in the mud bog between where we were parked and the only entrance to that area. He was also trying to figure out if he could make it up a ramp high enough to jump the ditch. I think he was kidding...:finga:

i was 1 of the poor bastards who sat in a holding lot for 3 days waiting for them to make a call on this. i understand they had to do it due to the weather. that was out of their control, but i wish they had made the call much earlier. i mean they knew there was an issue with the pit parking, that's why the holding area was moved to an outlet mall parking lot. so why drag it out so long. there were nearly 200 rigs parked there. i spent around 400.00 bucks for fuel on this trip multiply that by 200 rigs. that alot of money waisted, just becuase nhra and maple grove dragged their feet on this one. i'm very disapointed that the poeple running the show have no regard for waisting our already taxed racing budgets.
