Mother Nature Prevails - Again at Tri-County Speedway

For Immediate Release

Hendersonville, North Carolina (April 11, 2009) - Friday April 10th the UARA STARS and Pro Challenge cars rolled into Tri County Speedway with a full day of activities planned.  It began as a sunny morning near 60 degrees and went down hill later in the day.   Cars are rolling thru inspection and preparing for practice when the rains began.  It rained for a spell then the Tri County track crew set to work. 

 

The track gets dried and UARA officials produce a revised daily schedule.  The two UARA practice sessions will be rolled into one and lose only thirty minutes time.  Practice begins and the drivers are pumped.  Twenty nine drivers hit the grid.

    

Coleman Pressley sets the pace with the fastest practice time followed by Paddy Rodenbeck, Richard Boswell, Matt McCall and Andy Loden being the top five quickest.

Kyle Grissom had the tenth fastest practice time but his day was looking bleak as it appeared to be ending on a sad note.  Grissom suffered mechanical problems, possibly a wheel and his car was stopped in turn four and will head to the pits via a wrecker.  Mother Nature could be his best friend of the day.

Practice goes very well with a few spins etc but the show is on go.

The Pro Challenge drivers hit the track for their practice session and all goes well.  Kyle Benjamin set the fast time for these young men.

THEN the rains begin again without mercy.  UARA officials are glued to the weather satellite but in the end it appears this race will be a wash.  After much deliberation it is finally decided before the grandstands even get a chance to open that the show will be cancelled.

Due to the Easter Holiday and the fact many families had pre existing plans it was decided this event will be rescheduled on May 22.

The UARA gave it their best shot but it just was not meant to be on this day.

The UARA-STARS will be in action again at Rockingham Speedway; April 18, 2009.

 

Practice and qualifying for Rockingham will be on Friday April 17, 2009.  Pit registration will begin at 6:30 Friday with qualifying at 4pm.

 

HAPPY EASTER ONE AND ALL—ENJOY YOUR FAMILY.
