CVMA: Sunday At Chuckwalla Rained Out

CVMA Race Director Jay Tanner cancelled Sunday’s activities at Chuckwalla Valley Raceway when efforts to dry out the track were thwarted by more rain falling.

“It rained all last night and early this morning and the track was super wet,” Tanner told Roadracing World. “We put probably 50 cars on track trying to dry it off and used a track dryer to blow off puddles, trying to clear the water off. Then more rain came and it just wasn’t safe. Plus the tire vendors didn’t have enough rain tires for everybody, so we couldn’t justify racing. Everybody will get credits (on race entries) for today.”

Racer Andrew Lee posted a video on Instagram of cars, trucks, and even a motor home pulling a trailer around the track in an effort to dry it this morning:

Another racer posted a video of himself driving a van around the track, and declared that he had just set a new lap record for a ProMaster 3500!
