  1. Rafter fan says

    If Saurday is a wash-out, will it be a one day show on Sunday?

  2. Rafter Fan,
    I can’t say for sure, but considering the forecast looks great for Sunday, I’d imagine that just might be the case.

  3. Suckers race last race says

    if it rains on Saturday will any one of the racers ever get paid the prize money or will Terry pocket it all?

  4. steve cullen says

    Shawn, Do you think this is it for the Bowl? Not much has been said about its future.

  5. Steve,
    Hard to pinpoint details on the future, though I’m confident there will be racing there next year.
