We had a very tough call to make this time. Given the uncertainty of the weather, we have decided to cancel the Registration and Race scheduled for tonight and tomorrow morning. FCPS has not made a decision regarding the schools being closed this weekend. We talked with GBE staff several times today to get as much information as possible. The track setup is very intensive. Closing the schools would mean we would have to organize with GBE to come back in and break everything down over the weekend in time for school Monday. We also had to consider the large amount of perishable food that would be wasted due to a late cancellation.
Registration will begin tonight at 6 p.m. We will have stations set up to adjust and test weight, lube wheels, and make minor repairs. When you get in line to register, your child should have their car ready to race. Once a car is registered, it is sent to the Pit. Once there, it cannot be touched again until the Race. Registration typically ends around 9 p.m., but volunteers will stay longer to complete the massive setup for this event.
