For those of you who planned a nice week end of racing in NC with the TotO, Dixie Classic and Carolina Cup guess what? The mayor apparently had a wild hair up his ass and cancelled the permit for the race. They are saying that it will be held at ace speedway with the same start times.
I opt out and get stuck with hotel fee's. Freekin sucks. I am not going to drive 3 hours to race at ace speedway
I sound bitter...I know. I am angry w/ this discision to cancel the race not w/ all the folks that worked hard to put in on. The proceeds of the race were to benifit school supplies. Nice Mayor huh?
Anyway for those with plans.....change them.
Oh yeah not to mention that BF was the only way that me and a buddy of mine even found out about this fubar. So thanks to the posters in the Carolina cup thread. -we emailed the official who gave us this email:
> Glad you wrote. We learned this morning that the Elon mayor cancelled
> our permit for the streets. We've been scrambling, & have been able to
> secure Ace Speedway for the event. The race schedule will be the same,
> only a different venue.
> Please help spread the word that the race will go on, but at Ace
> instead of Elon.
>> Sorry to bother you at such a busy time, but I heard a rumor that the
>> TotO might not be happening? Is that true? I sure hope not.
>> Please let me know so that I don't drive down just to stay the night
>> in a hotel. Thanks!
Anyway hope to see you at the Carolina Cup...
