Drought....a prolonged period of abnormally low rainfall, leading to a shortage of water. However we were fortunate enough to receive a rain shower on Saturday night that helped with the dust. Temperature wise, the weekend was perfect, not to hot and not to cold.
The 2019 season is quickly coming to a close. Round 15 will be October 19th & 20th in Shelby at the Cleveland County Fairgrounds. This is an interesting track to lay out. When we were these earlier this year, dust was definitely not an issue!! Due to the weather conditions we were not able to run the track as originally laid out. Hopefully this time mother nature will cooperate and we will have drier conditions.
The banquet will be held on January 11th at the Shelby City Park. I will be posting more information about the schedule and times the closer we get to the date. If you are in the top 5 in class points, the ladies in the sign up trailer will need you to give them your glove size, tee shirt size. Class champions will need to give their coat size also.
Last year at the Airport race, the Dads of the PeeWee riders all got together and rode in the Sportsman Class during the Amateur race. We have been asked to do that again this year but with a catch...Moms want to be included. Youth quad moms and dads want to participate also. I would like to see this happen at the Water Wheel race, maybe as a separate race under the lights on Saturday night..
Each week Ricky Towery shares a prayer list on the starting line, please remember those mentioned in your daily thoughts and prayers. It was great to see Howard Epley at the track on Sunday. Howard is recovering from heart surgery and an extended stay in the hospital. Please remember Nick Morris, Brian Sherboneau, Taylor Roten, Hallie Fowler, Sofia Kasten, Carter Mitchell as they recover from their recent injuries. Continue to remember the family of Mike Rick in your thoughts and prayers,
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It would be great to see a sea of pink at the races in honor of those fighting breast cancer and the survivors of the disease. Jordan Freeman does not have breast cancer, but she does have cancer and needs our prayers.
If you are working on something that you really care about, you don't have to be pushed.....think about it.
Thank you for your support of Mideast !! You are appreciated!!
Hope to see everyone at the Water Wheel October 19 & 20!!
