Augusta Races Canceled 3/30/10

Postby B.L. » Tue Mar 30, 2010 12:36 pm

Good afternoon everyone,

Unfortunately the weather is not playing nice today. I ventured over to the
course this morning and was concerned with the amount of water that had
accumulated and the excess of stones and gravel on the 2 last corners. Since
then, I have collected 2 additional inches of water which leads me to
believe that the course is only getting worse. Because of this and my main
concern which is the safety of the racers, I have decided to cancel this
evenings races. I realize that the rain may let up later on this evening but
not soon enough for the course to be maintained for safe racing.

Please accept my apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused.
Stay safe and race week!
