THE TIME SLIP

Rain overshadowed the drag racing, again

by Neil Van Zile

While it wasn’t a complete washout, rainy weather caused more than one racing event to be canceled and left the eliminators unfinished on a number of other race days

New England Dragway opened the gates on Saturday, but the rain ended the racing before it even had a chance to get started. The weather on Sunday was even more cruel when it began raining late in the day, ending racing in the middle of the second round of eliminations. 

Lebanon Valley Dragway was able to complete their eliminators on Saturday, but the rain ended their day before the first round of racing was over on Sunday. 

Winterport Dragway benefited from being well north of the bad weather and that track was able to complete their racing eliminators on both Saturday and Sunday under sunny skies. 

Unfortunately, New Oxford Dragway was forced to cancel their planned Friday night racing because of the weather.
