The 2009 World of Speed event has been declared a "GO" -- starting Thursday.
Rain fell on the Salt Flats on Monday, leaving about an inch of water on the course. The weather has turned good, though, and as of this morning (Wednesday), the Salt is now good enough that the officials will move the course about a mile. The result will be that we've got a full seven miles -- so we'll have both a short AND a long course. There'll be the USFRA's 130 Club course, too.
Nobody will be allowed on the Salt today -- so officials can get their work done. Tomorrow (Thursday) racers will head out to set up pits first thing -- then racing will start after pit set up.
