RAIN RAIN........... RAIN....STORM......RAIN...... Most of the day Friday and through the night. The track was almost ready a few times but the rain came again and the stand areas were flooded...Trucks and haulers started to pull in but "Rain" came again hard and steady and this time ...............RACE was CANCELLED !!!
We had a great visit with Pastor (Chaplain) Bill Beck and his charming wife Judy. She is a miracle, as her doctor said with her healing after her serious surgery last year, which developed into complications. (Prayer works.) Enjoyed reminiscing and hearing Dudley and Bill talk about all the drivers from this area, whom Dudley drove with years ago. Saw the sparkle in their eyes as they remembered Lou Blaney, Dave & Dale... awesome family. They also remembered Gus Linder and the four generations of the Matus family, Johnny Beaber western Pennsylvania great, Rick Ferkle and many more.
That was an enjoyable 2 hours spent with Bill and Judy. We continue to pray for their health and follow Bill as he ministers and touches so many lives of racers and fans at these tracks and off.
Sat Morning .... Fixed a nice big breakfast and we will soon be on our way to Mercer speedway. Looking forward to a dry day...and a race tonight.
