Eagles Canyon Raceway Memorial Day Weekend

Anybody else here going? The weather forecast is shit but I don't mind getting wet! I just hope they don't have severe storms that would cause a cancellation since I'm coming in from St Louis. I'll be getting there tomorrow night around 7:30 and camping out for the weekend. Can't wait to ride!

This event has just been cancelled due to the weather forecast. I'm really shocked, it's usually "rain or shine" but the management of ECR and Ridesmart didn't want to risk the 90-100% chance of heavy thunderstorms. Kinda bummed but kudos to them for being proactive! Looks like I might see you at Gateway Todd.....

Rain is one thing, unfortunately, lightning is another

Last weekend at Hallett, lightning struck a near a truck that was running and fried the electrical system.

Agreed! I was totally aware that this event could be cancelled because of severe weather but was also surprised that they called it off beforehand. I think it was the right thing for them to do. We all know that events are rain or shine and I was prepared for it. It did catch me off guard though that they cancelled. Big thanks to ECR and Ridesmart for saving me 20 hours of driving back and forth to chance it! I've booked NCM with Sportbike Track Time so I'm still gonna ride this weekend, Woo Hoo! So, anybody here going to NCM this weekend?
