8:14PM Saturday November 5. At this time, racing is on as planned tomorrow. We will have another check point in the morning before racing begins and will communicate accordingly.
Race Day is almost here and we are sure you are watching the weather as closely as we are. Race officials will be meeting this evening to assess the situation. We will communicate decisions after we meet. Of course, safety is our number one concern.
