What is the Spencer ROC show's "decision point"?

Definitely want to see the races take place tomorrow night, but I have to say that it might be looking a little "iffy". I'm in West Webster, about 10-12 miles due west of the track. It's been raining off and on, all day today, and the forecast, as of right now, for tomorrow (race day), is rain, possibly heavy, in the morning. I know the asphalt can dry pretty quickly, but the infield, pit area, and parking lot might not be able to properly survive any kind of deluge, as the area is probably still a little soggy from a few days ago.

I hate to sound like a broken record, but once again, I'd hate to round up my gang of friends, only to drive to the track and find out the show has been called off. Is anyone in a position of authority to make that call, and if so, will it be posted here?

Right now, at 5:15PM, in West Webster, the sun and clouds are alternating, and it's a bit breezy. I'm heading out in about 30 minutes.......see y'all there!

Excellent news......the weather turned out nice, just a little on the cool side, and the races went on as scheduled. The very good news is that everything went smoothly, good field of cars in most of the classes, a few spins, a few "bent fenders", but no serious crashes, and the show was over by about 10:30, so I'm sure the "neighbors" were happy about that. The only down side, was when the races were over, and with a really good crowd on hand, getting out of the parking lot was a bit of a hassle. However, there are far worse things in life, for sure.........

Speaking of the 4 and 6 cylinder cars, the officials put a different twist on their feature race, in what I think was an effort to save a little time. They put both classes of cars on the track at the same time, with the 4 cylinder cars starting about half a lap ahead of the 6 cylinder cars. As the 4 cylinders took the green, the race was on. What was rather surprising, was by the time the race was over, several of the 4 cylinder cars had begun to pass the 6 cylinder cars.

Very different rules between the classes. 6cyl is running DOT tires and weighing about 3300lbs. 4cyl allows racing tires and is typically around 2200lbs, depending on a lot of factors.
