Shakedown Runs for New Driver
9/12/2014 - 6:01 pm CT
Stupidbaker is starting things off slowly with new driver Don Enriquez to get him some important seat time.
The first of two runs was just completed at a speed of around 130 mph. He started the run at the 3 mile and went to through the timed mile at mile 6.
The plan is for one more run today, increasing the length by a mile and picking the speed up a little. More news as we get it.
Standing Water Cancels Speed Week
SCTA — August 9, 2014
The SCTA Board is currently on the salt, and has determined that the standing water will not dry in time for us to hold our annual Speed Week event. The Board is also discussing the possibility of extending our next event - World Finals (Sep 30 - Oct 3) into a full week of racing as a sort of delayed Speed Week. We Thank You all for your patience and understanding. We look forward to seeing you at our next event.

Okay, the pics that were posted a little while ago of the shin deep water on the salt is the Pit Area. There is currently 1"-2" of water on some of the courses. They are waiting to see how much of the water recedes by tomorrow before making any official announcements.
We know this sucks not knowing what is going to happen and we do apologize. Mother Nature just had her way with us last night. We will update you as soon as we have any further information.
