No comments

wp-1463838230951.jpgThat darn rain. We were supposed to be in the clear this weekend! The drops have stopped falling but the track is saturated. Drying efforts have been underway since I arrived at 7:00 a.m. and I assume for some time prior. Due to the wet conditions, the practice and qualifying session times for today have been changed.

Saturday, May 21st – UPDATED On Track Action Schedule: 

11:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. IndyCar Group 1 Practice (no guaranteed green time)

11:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. IndyCar Group 2 Practice (no guaranteed green time)
12:37 p.m. – 1:17 p.m. IndyCar Group 2 Practice (no guaranteed green time)
