We had a lot going on this Saturday with great car counts in all of our summit series points classes, .90 racing, Jet cars, nitro Harley, fireworks and Ralph DeBruin Memorial Tribute. Two rain showers on a day with no rain in the forecast put the schedule behind and forced us to finish racing on Sunday morning.
