Saturday 8:00pm : Rain has halted the 3rd round of qualifying. We finished 4.60 when the rain started spitting. Right now we are waiting to see what happens. Worse case scenario is we call the race for the night and get back to it in the morning. 3rd round of 4.60 video are uploaded to our YouTube page.

Saturday 4:15pm : 3rd round of Pro qualifying starts at 7pm, we have the potential for some rain to come in around 7:15pm, however there is still a possibility it could split off and miss the track. In second round of Pro Street Rodney Williford and Joey Gladstone both ran 6.98’s, which was impressive considering how hot and humid it is here. – we have videos uploading to our YouTube page now. We are in second round of the ET classes now.

A lot of Sportsman racers seemed to be a little stressed over the Dragbike.com BAMF points. Bob Carlson borrowed a bar bike to run the 5.60 class for a potential to earn more points. Current leader Ben Knight showed up with only one bike that has a gremlin in it, so he was not happy to see Carlson in another class. The be a BAMF , you gotta show up and do the work.

Saturday 10:45am : ET bikes are back taking the track can the Rickey Gadson Club Wars bikes are signing up and running as well. Rickey Gadson is having a BBQ for his Club War races and has two big trophies to give out, one for the winner and one for best in show.

Saturday 10:30am : We are still down here in Atco while doing track clean out from the accident earlier, looks like we have oil on the asphalt portion of the track and it takes longer to clean up. The Atco staff is working hard to get us back to racing.

Saturday 9:30am : We just had a rider go down on the track, we don’t have a name in the tower yet, the rider had a wheelie and came down hard breaking his oil pan which just dropped a ton of oil on his back tire. He kept the bike upright and rode it well while it was going all over the place around the 1000, unfortunately the bike just kept fishtailing hard until the bike threw the rider off. The rider is okay and talking, he will be transported to the hospital and checked out.

Saturday 9am : What a great day for racing, the sky is clear, we have a light breeze and the lanes are full of motorcycles.
